Introduzione e prefazione di Paolo Ruffilli
Traduzione di Sandro Melani
«Volgare, disgustoso, osceno»: con queste motivazioni fu condannato e sequestrato in Inghilterra L’amante di Lady Chatterley, pubblicato nel 1928 in edizione privata presso un libraio fiorentino. Poteva avere sorte diversa un romanzo che, almeno in apparenza, esalta l’adulterio, per di più tra un guardacaccia plebeo e una donna di rango, che racconta una relazione erotica con estremo verismo e critica apertamente le convenzioni sociali? Solo nel 1960, a trent’anni dalla morte dell’autore, cadde definitivamente l’accusa di oscenità, ma un alone di scandalo continua ad avvolgere questo libro in cui l’amore viene esaltato come passione dei sensi e legge del sangue, e l’istinto ha la supremazia sulla ragione e sulla morale. Nelle pagine di Lawrence vibra ancora intatta la potente sensualità degli amanti che respira all’unisono con la natura selvaggia della campagna inglese delle Midlands, un Eden incontaminato per questi nuovi Adamo ed Eva che cercano la via della rigenerazione in una sessualità pura e innocente, libera da ogni tabù.

WARNING: This review contains a discussion of the c-word, and I plan to use it. Please don't read this if you do not want to see the word spelled out. Thanks. This is less a review than an homage to my crazy mother (now I have you really intrigued, don't I?) It was 1983, and I was in my first Catholic Leggi tutto
I honestly think that if this book hadn't been banned for obscene content, no one would have ever read it. Yes, there are lots of sex scenes (omg scandalous ) but all the stuff in between is, for the most part, ungodly boring. The book gets points for having some very intellectual discussions of clas Leggi tutto
"Afternoon, m'lady - do ye fancy a quick one over yon five barred gate?"

Lady Chatterley's Lover, David Herbert Richards = (D.H.) Lawrence Lady Chatterley's Lover is a novel by D. H. Lawrence, first published privately in 1928 in Italy, and in 1929 in France and Australia. An unexpurgated edition was not published openly in the United Kingdom until 1960. The story concerns Leggi tutto
D.H Lawrence, what have you done to me? This book was so much more than I thought it was going to be. This was an experience that I wanted to devour quickly, but that would mean not being able to soak up and bathe in Lawrence's every word, so I realised I needed to take my time. I found this book in Leggi tutto
Oh man, I wanted to like this soooo bad! So many people complained about it, but I misconstrued their complaints for prudishness or lord knows what. (NOTE TO SELF: Stop judging people's judgements until you can judge for yourself!) But the fact is, two-thirds of the way in I was done with this. I abs Leggi tutto
Ένα ερωτικο μυθιστόρημα με πλούτο αισθησιασμού και συναισθημάτων. Ένας ύμνος στον έρωτα και τα πάθη της σάρκας με θαυμαστή περιγραφή,χωρις υπερβολές αποδίδεται η σεξουαλικη ένωση δυο κορμιών σε ένα και παρουσιάζεται ως φλογερό αισθησιακό παιχνίδι του μυαλού και του σώματος χωρις χυδαιότητα.

Ah, D.H. Lawrence, why are you so awesome? I think Lawrence is one of those writers you either love or hate, and this is possibly even more true of Lady Chatterley's Lover, his last novel. The author's confidence speaks on every page: firstly, Lawrence has no qualms about interjecting his opinion in Leggi tutto
3.5 Stars Well.........I can certainly see why LADY CHATTERLEY'S LOVER was banned soon after publication back in 1928. So okay, you already know or anticipate that this particular classic is going to contain vulgarity and erotic situations, but for the life of me, I never thought it would be a com
Lady Chatterley's Lover has been one of the most controversial books of 20th-century classical literature. Branded as pornography and called "the foulest book in English literature", the book has faced severe censure as no other written piece of British literature, and its copies were hunted down.
