Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D. H. Lawrence
One of the most famous, exquisite, and through provoking books written by D.H. Lawrence portraying adulterous affair between a sexually unfulfilled upper-class married woman and the game keeper who works for the estate owned by her wheelchair bound husband. The novel praised for its sharp psychological portrait of British social order and explicit descriptions of sex was banned in several countries including Lawrence’s homeland England.
David Herbert Richards Lawrence, an English novelist, poet, playwright, and painter, heavily criticised, censored and prosecuted for his often sexually explicit and thought provoking writing. He spent much of his adult life in a voluntary exile which he called his savage pilgrimage. At the time of his death, his public reputation was that of a pornographer who had wasted his considerable talents. He is now valued as a visionary thinker and significant representative of modernism in English literature. His work represents an extended reflection upon the dehumanising effects of modernity and industrialisation. In them, Lawrence confronts issues relating to emotional health and vitality, spontaneity, and instinct.
