  • Lady Chatterley's Lover


    Lady Chatterley's Lover is the story of Constance, the titular Lady Chatterley, and her affair with the gamekeeper Oliver Mellors. Emotionally neglected by her paralyzed husband, Constance turns to Oliver for physical comfort and realizes that she has physical needs as a woman. The novel was considered obscene and scandalous at the time of its publication in 1928, containing as it did explicit depictions of sex and many instances of words unprintable in the United Kingdom and United States.
