Lady Chatterley’s Lover

Perhaps the most famous of D H 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 gamekeeper who works for the estate owned by her 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, Lawrence’s masterful and lyrical writing, and a story that takes us bodily into the world of its characters.

This new edition is introduced by Geoff Dyer.

Published: US, Signet Classics, 2003
