Lady Chatterley’s Lover

 It was first published privately by the English author D H Lawrence in 1928, in Italy, and in 1929, in France. In 1960, there was a watershed obscenity trial in the United Kingdom against the publisher Penguin Books, which won the case and quickly sold three million copies of the unexpurgated edition. A number of countries have also banned the book for obscenity, including the United States, Canada, Australia, India, and Japan. The book gained fame as soon as it was published for its story of a physical (and emotional) relationship between an upper-class man and a working-class woman, its explicit descriptions of sex, and its use of four-letter words that were then unprintable. Lady Chatterley is the story of a young married woman, formerly Constance Reid, whose upper-class Baronet husband is paralyzed from the waist down due to an injury incurred during World War I. Clifford's physical limitations are compounded by his emotional neglect of Constance, which causes space between them. She becomes emotionally frustrated and has an affair with gamekeeper Oliver Mellors. In the novel, class differences between the couple highlight the unfair dominance of intellectuals over working class people. Constance realizes that she cannot survive with the mind alone, but must also be alive physically in the novel. Based on the heightened sexual experience Constance has only had with Mellors, this realization implies that love can happen through the body alone, rather than the mind alone.
