Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D.H. Lawrence

About the book

Lady Chatterley’s Lover is the novel with which D.H. Lawrence is most often associated. The story of how the wife of Sir Clifford Chatterley responds when her husband returns from the war paralysed from the waist down, and of the tender love which then develops between her and her husband’s gamekeeper, is a complex one open to a variety of conflicting interpretations.

This edition of the novel offers an occasion for a new generation of readers to discover what all the fuss was about; to appraise Lawrence’s bitter indictment of modern industrial society, and to ask themselves what lessons there might be for the 21st century in his intense exploration of the complicated relations between love and sex.

 

Reviewed by Book Tower

“Lawrence’s writing style and descriptions were appreciated if a little longwinded at times. He showed an understanding of women, not just in the physical sense but emotionally too. He also pictured the life of the miners in a sympathetic way; describing the drudgery they endured. Some members found it difficult to empathise with Sir Clifford, and thought that his relationship with Mrs Bolton enabled her to gain an upper class life style and power over him”
