About this Item

Viking HC 1st edition / 1st printing (08/'72). FINE in Fine wraps (dust jacket.) No marks. No wear. New. - The second of three versions of "Lady Chatterly's Lover": The First Lady Chatterly, John Thomas and Lady Jane, and Lady Chatterly's Lover. Each is unique, but the second version is the most different from the others. Most critics consider it inferior to the original and the final, third version, but this contains much material not in the other versions, a much greater exploration of class conflict, and other differences that make it an important milestone in Lawrence's development. It is sufficiently different so that it may be read as a separate Lawrence novel. Bookseller Inventory # 06171211

About this title

Synopsis:

The second version of "Lady Chatterley's Lover". It is in many ways quite different from the first and last: both in the personalities of Parkin, the gamekeeper (later called Mellors) and Connie Chatterley, and in the development of the love story.

About the Author:

The son of a miner, the prolific novelist, poet, and travel writer David Herbert Lawrence was born in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, in 1885. He attended Nottingham University and found employment as a schoolteacher. His first novel, The White Peacock, was published in 1911, the same year his beloved mother died and he quit teaching after contracting pneumonia. The next year Lawrence published Sons and Lovers and ran off to Germany with Frieda Weekley, his former tutor’s wife. His masterpieces The Rainbow and Women in Love were completed in quick succession, but the first was suppressed as indecent and the second was not published until 1920. Lawrence’s lyrical writings challenged convention, promoting a return to an ideal of nature where sex is seen as a sacrament. In 1928 Lawrence’s final novel, Lady Chatterley’s Lover, was banned in England and the United States for indecency. He died of tuberculosis in 1930 in Venice.
