A famous novel from an important writer.
From one source:
"Lady Chatterley's Lover
was banned for a time in both the UK and the US as pornographic. In the UK it was published in unexpurgated form in 1960 after an obscenity trial, where defense witnesses included E.M. Forster, Helen Gardner, and Richard Hoggart.
"Printed privately in Florence in 1928, it was not printed in the United Kingdom until 1960. Lawrence considered calling this book Tenderness
at one time and made significant alterations to the original manuscript in order to make it palatable to readers. It has been published in three different versions."
And from the Wik:
"The publication of the book caused a scandal due to its explicit sex scenes, including previously banned four-letter words, and perhaps particularly because the lovers were a working-class male and an aristocratic female..."
This is an important novel, as both literature and social commentary.
I hope you enjoy it.
