Lady Chatterley's Lover | [D. H. Lawrence]

Lady Chatterley's Lover

The story of the physical relationship between the aristocratic protagonist Constance Chatterley and gamekeeper Oliver Mellors - which occurs right under the nose of her wheelchair-bound husband, Clifford. In exploring the class system of the early 20th century, the novel also touches upon the declining coal-mining industry, its effect on the workers, and the politics which surrounded it. Yet possibly the most important theme is the individual’s need for physical as well as intellectual satisfaction.

Audible Editor Reviews

Thanks to its explicit sexual descriptions and language not quite fit for teatime conversation, Lady Chatterley’s Lover spent its first several decades of existence circulating via private printings and in and out of various courts of appeals. In this abridged production of the D. H. Lawrence classic, all of the original scandal is sure to resonate with listeners as veteran actor Maxine Peake lends her crisp yet delicate voice. Whether you’re an old friend of Constance Chatterley or this is your first time to the estate, there is much to explore in this audiobook.

Publisher's Summary

Explicit descriptions of sex and "unprintable" words meant that D. H. Lawrence’s notorious novel could only be printed in Florence when it was published in 1928. Almost entitled Tenderness by the author, it tells the story of the physical relationship between the aristocratic protagonist Constance Chatterley and gamekeeper Oliver Mellors - which occurs right under the nose of her wheelchair-bound husband, Clifford.

In exploring the class system of the early 20th century, the novel also touches upon the declining coal-mining industry, its effect on the workers, and the politics that surrounded it. Yet possibly the most important theme in this intimate and moving novel is the individual’s need for physical as well as intellectual satisfaction in order to feel a sense of completeness.
