H. Lawrence&&L/B&&R's novels, &&LI&&RLady Chatterley's Lover&&L/I&&R was published in 1928 and banned in England and the United States as pornographic. While sexually tame by today's standards, the book is memorable for better reasons--Lawrence's masterful and lyrical prose, and a vibrant story that takes us bodily into the world of its characters.&&LBR&&R&&LBR&&RAs the novel opens, Constance Chatterley finds herself trapped in an unfulfilling marriage to a rich aristocrat whose war wounds have left him paralyzed and impotent. After a brief but unsatisfying affair with a playwright, Lady Chatterley enjoys an extremely passionate relationship with the gamekeeper on the family estate, Oliver Mellors. As Lady Chatterley falls in love and conceives a child with Mellors, she moves from the heartless, bloodless world of the intelligentsia and aristocracy into a vital and profound connection rooted in sexual fulfillment.&&LBR&&R&&LBR&&RThrough this novel, Lawrence attempted to revive in the human consciousness an awareness of savage sensuality, a sensuality with the power to free men and women from the enslaving sterility of modern technology and intellectualism. Perhaps even more relevant today than when it first appeared, &&LI&&RLady Chatterley's Lover&&L/I&&R is a triumph of passion and an erotic celebration of life.&&LBR&&R&&L/P&&R&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&R&&LSTRONG&&RSusan Ostrov Weisser&&L/B&&R&&L/B&&R is a professor in the English Department at Adelphi University, where she specializes in nineteenth-century literature and women's studies, and teaches frequently in the Honors College.&&L/P&&R&&L/DIV&&R
