Lady Chatterleys Lover

Lady Chatterleys Lover Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the story of Constance Chatterley, a lovely young woman whose parts are all in good working order. Not so her husband, Clifford. He wears repression like armor.

So when Constance is thrown into contact with Oliver Mellors, her husband's gamekeeper, the results are explosive. He restores her sexuality and with it her zest in life and living.

When the book was published in 1928, it caused a sensation. Lawrence wrote of physical love with a lack of inhibition that startled his readers, but his scenes evoked lyrical tenderness and joy. They still do. This edition, banned in the United States until 1959, was the first complete and unexpurgated text of Lawrence's finest and most famous novel.

Review:

"Lawrence was concerned with one end: to reveal how love, how a relationship between a man and a woman can be most touching and beautiful, but only if it is unihibited and total." Alfred Breit

Review:

"Lawrence?s classic tale of love and discovery comes alive in this audio presentation. Lady Chatterley is trapped in an unhappy marriage with a husband who is paralyzed physically and emotionally. Jill Daly reads in a quiet tone which ebbs and flows with the excitement of the characters. The indecisiveness of Lady Chatterley, the callousness of her husband, the persuasiveness of her lover all are portrayed in a quiet, even voice until the climactic end. The abridgment is an excellent taste of D.H. Lawrence. Some language and imagery are explicit." Margaret G. Kahn

Review:

"The most tender, poignant and liberated love story of all time." B-O-T Editorial Review Board

Synopsis:

The Authorized, Unexpurgated 75Th Anniversary Edition One of the most beautiful and notorious love stories of the 20th century in the only complete, unexpurgated U.S. edition authorized by the Lawrence estate.
