When first published privately in Italy, in 1928, Lady Chatterly's Lover was too risque for readers and was considered unprintable. It wasn't until three decades later, in 1960, that the novel could be printed openly in the United Kingdom. Much debate has gone into what constitutes erotic literature; but whether the novel was about a scandalous affair or a quest for purity, or about the class system and social conflict, one needs to read it for oneself to find the message that lies within. Lady Chatterly's Lover will surely pique the interest and curiosity of the most discerning of readers.
