One of the most extraordinary literary works of the twentieth century, Lady Chatterley's Lover was banned in England and the United States after its initial publication in 1928.
The unexpurgated edition did not appear in America until 1959, after one of the most spectacular legal battles in publishing history.
"Of the many exquisite books written by D.H.Lawrence, the book which has gained the most popularity has been Lady Chatterley's Lover. Most famous because of its obscenity trial during the 1960's, Lady Chatterley's Lover is far from a "dirty book." Rather, through his usage of local vernacular and an in depth look at the true relationship between two humans, Lawrence has successfully portrayed sex as sacred in a world where sex is viewed as nothing more than physical pleasure. This novel is a masterful example of a writer going back to everyone's common roots and emerging with a thought provoking masterpiece designed to affect a change within its readers." online-literature

About D H Lawrence

See more books from this Author
An English novelist, poet, playwright, literary critic, and painter, D. H. Lawrence is best known for his novels Sons and Lovers, The Rainbow, Women in Love, and Lady Chatterley's Lover. Writing in the period leading up to and following the First World War, Lawrence's work explores the nature of personal and sexual relationships in light of industrialization and the new culture of modernity. Persecuted for his strong opinions, Lawrence spent the second part of his career in an exile he referred to as his "savage pilgrimage," while his work continued to be censored and misrepresented, resulting in the sensational obscenity trial of Lady Chatterley's Lover. Lawrence died in 1930 and is considered to be a visionary thinker and significant representative of modernism in English literature.
