The Bookies will meet Tuesday, November 16 at 5:30 pm to discuss Lady Chatterly’s Lover by D. H. Lawrence.
Books can be checked out at the upstairs circulation desk.
Lyric and sensual, D.H. Lawrence’s last novel is one of the major works of fiction of the twentieth century. Filled with scenes of intimate beauty, explores the emotions of a lonely woman trapped in a sterile marriage and her growing love for the robust gamekeeper of her husband’s estate.
Lawrence’s frank portrayal of an extramarital affair and the explicit sexual explorations of its central characters caused this controversial book, now considered a masterpiece, to be banned as pornography until 1960. (Amazon & Goodreads Summary)
