9780140187861: Lady Chatterley's Lover: Cambridge Lawrence Edition (Classic, 20th-Century, Penguin)

An authoritative edition of what D.H. Lawrence called "the most improper novel in the world"

With her soft brown hair, lithe figure and big, wondering eyes, Constance Chatterley is possessed of a certain vitality. Yet she is deeply unhappy; married to an invalid, she is almost as inwardly paralysed as her husband Clifford is paralysed below the waist. It is not until she finds refuge in the arms of Mellors the game-keeper, a solitary man of a class apart, that she feels regenerated. Together they move from an outer world of chaos towards an inner world of fulfillment.

Included here, in his essay A Propos of Lady Chatterley's Lover, are Lawrence's own, final thoughts on male-female relationships in the modern world. This Penguin edition reproduces the newly established Cambridge text, the first edition ever to restore to Lawrence's most famous work the words he wrote and the first to correct authoritatively the 1928 Florence edition which Lawrence personally supervised.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

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 game keeper who works for the estate owned by her wheelchaired 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, that Lawrence was a masterful and lyrical writer, whose story takes us bodily into the world of its characters.

Book Description:

The Cambridge edition of Lady Chatterley's Lover is the first ever to restore to Lawrence's most famous novel the words that he wrote. Removing corruptions and errors and including hundreds of new words, phrases and sentences - this is the only text that can be read or quoted with confidence.

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 1995. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Lyric and sensual, D.H. Lawrence s last novel is one of the major works of fiction of the twentieth century. Filled with scenes of intimate beauty, explores the emotions of a lonely woman trapped in a sterile marriage and her growing love for the robust gamekeeper of her husband s estate. The most controversial of Lawrence s books, Lady Chatterly s Lover joyously affirms the author s vision of individual regeneration through sexual love. The book s power, complexity, and psychological intricacy make this a completely original work--a triumph of passion, an erotic celebration of life. Nobody concerned with the novel in our century can afford not to read it. -- Lawrence Durrell. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780140187861
