D.H. Lawrence finished "Lady Chatterley's Lover" in 1928, but it was not published in an uncensored version until 1960. Many contemporary critics of D.H. Lawrence viewed the Victorian love story as vulgar, and even pornographic. It was banned immediately upon publication in both the UK and the US. The obscenity trials which followed established legal precedents for literature which still endure. At the heart, "Lady Chatterley's Lover" is a story about the invisible bonds between lovers, companions, and husbands and wives. Against this backdrop, Lawrence also explores the relationship between physical desire and spiritual fulfillment, often using sensual and explicitly sexual language. This special edition of "Lady Chatterley's Lover" has been restored for a modern audience, including all previously censored material.

3.0 Kochanek Lady Chatterley
Sama w sumie nie wiem czego oczekiwałam od tej książki. Nie czuję rozczarowania czy jakiejś specjalnej radości, że przeczytałam. Czy można napisać pięknie o miłości i romansie, pobudzając wyobraźnie nie używając zbędnych słów by opisać miłosne i seksualne uniesienia? Owszem można i ta książka jest t...

4.0 Lady Chatterley's Lover
Really, a very tender and beautiful love story. I'm not a subscriber to its philosophy, but I think that it is very true to itself and quite interesting. There is nothing overtly lurid in its sexuality; compared to today's use of sex in stories, it is extremely tasteful - even soulful. My one issue ...
