Introduction by Kathryn Harrison
Inspired by the long-standing affair between D. H. Lawrence's German wife and an Italian peasant, "Lady Chatterley's Lover" follows the intense passions of Constance Chatterley. Trapped in an unhappy marriage to an aristocratic mine owner whose war wounds have left him paralyzed and impotent, Constance enters into a liaison with the gamekeeper Mellors. Frank Kermode called the book D. H. Lawrence's "great achievement," Anais Nin described it as "his best novel," and Archibald MacLeish hailed it as "one of the most important works of fiction of the century." Along with an incisive Introduction by Kathryn Harrison, this Modern Library edition includes the transcript of the judge's decision in the famous 1959 obscenity trial that allowed "Lady Chatterley's Lover" to be published in the United States.
