“Subject of an infamous obscenity trial, Lady Chatterley’s Lover is now regarded as one of the pivotal novels of the twentieth century.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
D.H. Lawrence’s novel; Lady Chatterley’s Lover was first published privately in Italy in 1928, and was not published openly in the UK until the 1960’s.
The book which was banned in many places, caused a lot of scandal due to its sexual nature. D. H. Lawrence’s novel became notorious for its explicit nature and use of profanity.
However the book’s reception has very much changed in recent years. The decreased stigma of sex and swearing has meant the book’s shock factor has less impact than when it was first published.
