"Lady Chatterley's Lover" was the subject of one of the most infamous trials of the 20th Century when Penguin were prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act. However, with expert witnesses for the defence including E.M. Forster, Penguin were acquitted and permitted to publish in 1960. The book became a best-seller largely on account of its explicit scenes of a sexual nature and use of four letter words. However, re-reading again over forty years later, one realises that although the sex scenes are still graphic even today, the book is about much more than sex. It covers love, class, disability, family relationships, infertility, politics and is read by acclaimed actress Emilia Fox, star of "Silent Witness".

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 Important Books, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The story of Lady Chatterley s Lover originated from events in Lawrence s own unhappy domestic life, and he took inspiration for the settings of the book from Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, where he grew up. According to some critics, the fling of Lady Ottoline Morrell with Tiger, a young stonemason who came to carve plinths for her garden statues, also influenced the story. It is D. H. Lawrence s most controversial classic, first published in 1928. The first edition was printed privately in Florence, Italy; it could not be published openly in the United Kingdom until 1960. The book soon became notorious for its story of the physical relationship between a working-class man and an aristocratic woman, its explicit descriptions of sex, and its use of (at the time) unprintable words.
