D.H. Lawrence: Lady Chatterley’s Lover

We’ve got to live, no matter how many skies have fallen.” 

(Lady Chatterley’s Lover)

The First World War had been a shattering experience for society. Through perhaps his most famous novel, D.H. Lawrence was calling for people to be courageous enough to live. However, it was not without controversy and this book has one of the most complicated publication histories of any novel.

In this second story contributed by Carolyn Melbourne, Manager at the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum, she explores a few of the people and places connected with this fascinating story.
