Lawrence wrote the novel "Lady Chatterley's Lover" in 1920. Because of the controversy surrounding its publication, the book underwent several printings and was finally privately published in Florence in 1928. It was Lawrence's final novel.
It tells the story of Clifford and Connie Chatterley and their sterile marriage, which ultimately leads her to have an affair with their gamekeeper, Mellors.
The story takes place after the First World War and is set in England, in the heart of the industrialised Midlands.
