9780521007177: Lady Chatterley's Lover and A Propos of 'Lady Chatterley's Lover' (The Cambridge Edition of the Works of D. H. Lawrence)

This edition of Lady Chatterley's Lover (and A Propos of `Lady Chatterley's Lover') newly establishes the text of D.H. Lawrence's most famous novel by peeling off the layers of typists' corruptions and compositors' errors that have seriously marred the novel for over sixty years. It is the first edition to restore to Lawrence's text the words he wrote, and the first to correct authoritatively the 1928 Florence edition that Lawrence personally supervised. The introduction establishes an accurate history of composition, publication and reception; the notes identify difficult allusions; and the appendix explains how Lawrence weaves real places and people into his fictional tapestry.

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.
