In Lady Chatterley's Lover, Lawrence argues for individual regeneration, which can be found only through the relationship between man and woman (and, he asserts sometimes, man and man). Love and personal relationships are the threads that bind this novel together. Lawrence explores a wide range of different types of relationships. The reader sees the brutal, bullying relationship between Mellors and his wife Bertha, who punishes him by preventing his pleasure. There is Tommy Dukes, who has no relationship because he cannot find a woman who he respects intellectually and at the same time finds desirable. There is also the perverse, maternal relationship that ultimately develops between Clifford and Mrs. Bolton after Connie has left. Masterfully written, one of the most important novels of all time. This in the original unexpurgated edition.
Interesting from a historical perspective only
I read the book because of the controversy that surrounded its publication. From that perspective, it was somewhat interesting.
Hover, as a novel, it was rather odd. Lady Chatterly didn’t seem to have a good unofficial herself and certainly not of others.
The lover, Mellors, was a more relatable character.
From a historical perspective, it is kind of interesting but I would not recommend it.
