I have been reading a good deal of non-fiction and this was the novel I needed. This is only the second of D.H. Lawrence's works I have read and the first of his novels. This first version of the book that made an appearance in Mad Men, Lady Chatterley's Lover, appears not to be as famous as the latter third edition. This first edition is unusual in that it is not organised into parts or chapters and I found myself unable to put it down because it was good but also because there are no natural p [...]

D H Lawrence wrote three drafts of the novel that was later published as 'Lady Chatterley's Lover'. This first version, Frieda Lawrence's favourite, is related as a single narrative, unbroken by chapters. It's many years since I read the most famous of the three novels, so am unable to draw parallels. However 'The First Lady Chatterley' is a beautiful and absorbing read. A story of a woman initially torn between her love for two men; Sir Clifford's legal wife, but the 'wife in the woods' to the [...]

I almost feel like I need to apologize for liking this book. I was warned I wouldn't like it and that everything between the "naughty" parts were boring. Not true. The between parts were by far the best parts! It makes you think about marriage and what you're willing to settle for, the social classes & what's considered the "upper class" is not necessarily upper by someone else's standards. And to tell you the truth it made me thankful for moral standards! A little guidance here would have b [...]

This book that I wanted so much to love, just turned out to be one long rant on everything that is/was wrong with society. Very little seemed to happen other than all the characters moaning. Also I know it was the 20s so they had a lot more modesty than we do now, and maybe I just didn't get it or something but other than the page long ramble about how a penis is a blood filled fountain of life, I couldn't find a single sexually explicit moment, or any kind of reason for this book to have been b [...]

I like it better This book is more concise. The conclusion is a little less defined but it's better for that. We all do wonder how they would work it out. In this version, it's thoughtful, emotional, practical and personal. The plot moves quickly and the reflective/philosophical parts are appropriate and illuminating without dragging on for too long. I'm glad Michaelis wasn't in this version. It makes me want to watch the Ken Russell film again.

I've read all three versions, and despite what the blurb said on the back of the second book, that Lawrence subtitled it 'Tenderness', this one is my favourite. There's more on the intellectual relationship between Constance and her husband; and my personal theory is that, in this version, you can see the influence of Thomas Hardy's last two novels: 'Tess of the d'Urbervilles' and 'Jude the Obscure'. The idea of a person being torn between a cerebral/platonic relationship and a physical one is n [...]

Die titelgebende Dame, Lady Constance “Connie” Chatterley, so ihr Vorname, lebt zusammen mit ihrem Ehemann Clifford auf einem Anwesen im England der 1920er Jahre. Besonders glücklich ist diese Ehe nicht: Clifford ist gelähmt aus dem Ersten Weltkrieg zurückgekehrt und sitzt seitdem im Rollstuhl. Da er zusätzlich auch impotent ist, bleibt die sexuelle Befriedigung in der Ehe insbesondere für Connie auf der Strecke – Clifford scheint mehr traurig darüber zu sein, dass er seiner Familie [...]

At the beginning, this book made me feel like a part of Bacovian universe; all was gray: gray sky, gray mansion, gray words, gray smoke and the monotony of everyday. Also the talking is lacunar, there are no well explained subject, nothing makes sense and the logic is absent. This made me feel every word, to imagine the beginning of XX century and to realize the pathological boredom Constance felt.Then there is the forest: painted in green and flowers, even if the sky is still gray. A new norrow [...]

D H Lawrence writes of love and sexual intimacy with such beauty. I loved that the sex between Parkin and Lady Chatterley wasn’t pornography. It wasn’t specific rather general and focused on the feelings between the two. He particularly described the look of the eyes. The changing features within the eyes and not just Parkin and Lady Chatterley but all the characters. It is his way of capturing the moment, the changing moment during communication between people. He allows us to then interpre [...]

Simplement excellent! La première fois que je lis une préface dans son intégralité que celle ci est écrite par Mme Lawrencequi y relate les circonstances de l'écriture de son mari de l'oeuvre. Sachant que cette édition est la première version que Lawrence a eut tant de réticences à publierqu'il s'est vu contraint de réecrire et modifier deux fois son texteLa lutte des classes, peinte dans son ambiguîté extrême dans la relation de Lady Chatterley avec le garde chasse de son époux c [...]

I have mixed thoughts on this book. Initially, I found this book to be really dull. The author just keep ranting on how inhumane society has become, which of course, is the main theme throughout the novel. The novel gradually becomes interesting as Mellors and Connie's affair becomes intense. However, I'm not sure if their relationship is ultimately driven by love or lust. Mellors never directly tells Connie that he is in love with her, which left me a little disheartened. Also in the end of the [...]

Not badly written, just too Lawrence for my taste. Too much spirituality of animals and common people (insulting) and idolization of nature and hatred of technology. Too much time spent going back and forth between Constance and Parkin as to whether or not they can live together in some fashion. He doesn't want to live on her money, she can't be brought down to his level, sounds like a helpless case. But it's a case they keep revisiting every ten pages, one more talk, one more of her whining bin [...]

Absolutely loved this book. So wonderful to be reading a 20th Century classic again. I read the first edition, not realising that Lawrence wrote three editions in an effort to fend off the critics with each attempt. His wife, Freda, liked the first edition best, so am glad I read that one. Unfortunately a few pages of Lawrence's notes were missing and so were unable to be published however I felt able to fill in the gaps. Great characters, gritty story line, addresses society's class prejudice w [...]

Long before the famous indecent publications case, Lawrence wrote this first draft of one of his most famous works.It makes for interesting reading especially in comparison to the later more famous version. In this telling the love story feels oddly more sincere and honest thatn the mire of self doubt and misery in the final version. The plot is basically the same, although certain elements, the rising power of the working classes, is painted in broader simpler strokes than the more unsettling a [...]

Aaaaand you see why D. H. Lawrence re-wrote this book (twice.) Nothing that kills a book faster for a 21st century reader is painstakingly long debates on Communism. Every now and then there are breaks of "next three pages of original manuscript missing" which doesn't slow the already comatose plot since Lawrence liked to repeat himself so much.

What a beautiful, surprising story. An upperclass British lady at the turn of the century discovers sexual love and attachment with her husband's very common "gamekeeper." I loved the revolutionary theme! The lack of chapter divisions was a truly unique reading experience. Because of this, it almost felt like a fairy tale to me.

I really didn't like this book, and not because of the explicit descriptions but because it goes goes on and on and onI just got bored with it all. The story is little more than padding and the words are just dull, exactly how Connie describes the North!

I hadn't realized that D.H. Lawrence had written 3 versions of Lady Chatterley's Lover. It was interesting as a piece of history. For my taste though, there was much too much philosophizing and ruminating!

This book is not as indecent and alarming as everyone thinks!!! It actually has its point. I actually admire Lady Chatterley, how she was able to found her real love and life after being married to a cripple. However, there are so many scripts that i find no sense, as in their lost within the book.

Not just an erotic book, but also about how women and men were supposed to behave in proper society. A historical view of a historical open marriage ending in a woman's liberation.

Lawrence wrote three versions and this one shows how he began to develop this coming of age story.
