The story of this book is quite simple but rich in meaning. Lady Chatterley is the wife of a disabled nobleman, the owner of a coal mine. He is paralyzed and can move only by wheelchair. He is a good businessman and also a lover of literature. But he cannot have sex.
Do you think a beautiful young woman can resist the lure of sex?
The background of the book is a mine coal. Colliers’ lives seem to be gloomy, but there is no choice. It is not possible to change society! The colliery is the only resource. They have to accept reality as it is, otherwise, they would die of starvation.
In this dismal environment, Lady Chatterley becomes the lover of her husband’s gamekeeper and gets pregnant. Is there love between them?
The final part of the book seems to show that love is different from sex. Lady Chatterley’s lover sends her a letter. He writes, “Now is the time to be chaste, it is so good to be chaste, like a river of cool water in my soul.” Maybe real love doesn’t need sex, even though it is an irresistible natural instinct. What is true love?
