9780140274295: Lady Chatterley's Lover (Essential Penguin)

Banned in 1928, and when it was published here in 1960, this frank depiction of a young woman's sensual awakening was at the centre of a sensational obscenity trial in 1963.

Constance Chatterley is deeply unhappy; married to an invalid, she is almost as inwardly paralysed as her husband Clifford is paralysed below the waist. Oppressed by her dreary life, she finds refuge and regeneration in the arms of Mellors the game-keeper. But can she break out against the constraints of society, and yield to her instinctive desire for him?

Review:

Perhaps the most famous of Lawrence's novels, the 1928 Lady Chatterley's Lover is no longer distinguished for the once shockingly explicit treatment of its subject matter--the adulterous affair between a sexually unfulfilled upper-class married woman and the gamekeeper who works for the estate owned by her husband. Now that we're used to reading about sex, and seeing it in the movies, it's apparent that the novel is memorable for better reasons: namely, Lawrence's masterful and lyrical writing, and a story that takes us bodily into the world of its characters.

Review:

* This abridgement is masterfully done and Emilia Fox reads even the most shuddering parts with dignity and authenticity. The Observer
