"Lady Chatterley's Lover" is D. H. Lawrence's controversial novel written in 1928, which tells the story of an aristocratic woman, Constance (Lady Chatterley), who has an affair with the estate's gamekeeper when her husband is paralyzed and rendered impotent. Central to the theme of the novel is the need for physical stimulation as well as mental stimulation in order to feel complete as a human being. Due to the offensive language and subject matter of the book a charge of obscenity was brought against it in a famous 1960 trial in the United Kingdom. The novel and Lawrence were cleared of the charges and for the first time the novel was allowed to be published without restriction. Presented here is the original unabridged version first published privately in Florence in 1928.

Lady Chatterley's Lover is a novel by D. H. Lawrence, first published in 1928. The first edition was printed privately in Florence, Italy with assistance from Pino Orioli; it could not be published openly in the United Kingdom until 1960. (A private edition was issued by Inky Stephensen's Mandrake Press in 1929.­) 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 then-­unprintable words.

Lawrence's own unhappy domestic life, and he took inspiration for the settings of the book from Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, where he grew up.

But it happens that Mr. Lawrence has already produced notable work, mainly some early and evidently autobiographical poems, which show his preoccupation with the identical theme. Sons and Lovers is thus truly creative, in that it is built up internally—as any masterpiece must be—out of the psychic conflicts of the author, and any testimony which it may bear to the truth of the theory involved will . . .

A renowned literary figure, D. H. Lawrence pushed the boundaries of early twentieth century literature with his frank discussion of sexuality and women’s physical desire.­Set against the backdrop of England’s industrial revolution, The Rainbow examines shifting social roles in pre-­First World War England through the experiences of three generations of Brangwen women—Anna, Ursula, and Gudrun—who each deal with their own challenges: forbidden sexual desire, unfulfilling marriages and the impossibility of physical love. Ursula and Gundrun Brangwen’s stories continue in Women in Love, as they meet and develop relationships with Gerald Crich and Rupert Birkin.­HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.
