Lawrence had considered renaming the book “Tenderness” and had substantially revised and polished the original manuscript. Three different editions of the book were published, and the story’s sexually explicit descriptions and obscene language, which was taboo at the time, drew criticism from many critics, perhaps also because the protagonists of the book were working-class men For the sake of relations with bourgeois women.
The story is said to have been inspired by Lawrence’s own unhappy home life and is set in Derbyshire, where Lawrence lived for a while.
It tells the story of Constance’s husband, Baronet Clifford Chateler, who was injured in World War I and was paralyzed for life. After the war, the empty and depressive life lacking sexual joy made her sad and resentful. As a nobleman, Clifford His indifference and arrogance made him gradually alienated from the heart of Constance, who was born in the middle class. Constance met a gamekeeper, Oliver Mellors, and was attracted by his temperament and character, and fell in love with him.

In 1960, when “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” was to be published in the UK, the publisher Penguin Books faced the publication censorship judgment of the newly revised “Obscene Publications Act” in 1959, which became a big news in the publishing industry.
