Some time in the s? Nope, Thoresby Colliery closed in Julyjust the other day. And the UK still has one operating — Kellingley in Yorkshire — though that will shut down before the end of the year. Men are hauled up from hell, blackened, injured, dead, and rushed away while their bosses — stiff-collared men who have grown rich from the coal and the toil of their working-class labourers — begin their cover up.
Plot introduction[ edit ] The story concerns a young married woman, the former Constance Reid Lady Chatterleywhose upper class husband, Sir Clifford Chatterley, described as a handsome, well-built man, has been paralysed from the waist down due to a Great War injury.
In addition to Clifford's physical limitations, his emotional neglect of Constance forces distance between the couple. Her emotional frustration leads her into an affair with the gamekeeperOliver Mellors. The class difference between the couple highlights a major motif of the novel which is the unfair dominance of intellectuals over the working class.
The novel is about Constance's realization that she cannot live with the mind alone; she must also be alive physically. This realization stems from a heightened sexual experience Constance has only felt with Mellors, suggesting that love can only happen with the element of the body, not the mind.
Themes[ edit ] In Lady Chatterley's Lover, Lawrence comes full circle to argue once again for individual regeneration, which can be found only through the relationship between man and woman and, he asserts sometimes, man and man.
Love and personal relationships are the threads that bind this novel together. Lawrence explores a wide range of different types of relationships. The reader sees the brutal, bullying relationship between Mellors and his wife Bertha, who punishes him by preventing his pleasure.
There is Tommy Dukes, who has no relationship because he cannot find a woman whom he respects intellectually and, at the same time, finds desirable.
There is also the perverse, maternal relationship that ultimately develops between Clifford and Mrs. Bolton, his caring nurse, after Connie has left.
Mind and body[ edit ] Richard Hoggart argues that the main subject of Lady Chatterley's Lover is not the sexual passages that were the subject of such debate but the search for integrity and wholeness.
So they had given the gift of themselves, each to the youth with whom she had the most subtle and intimate arguments. The arguments, the discussions were the great thing: Constance's lack of intimacy with her husband who is "all mind" and Mellors's choice to live apart from his wife because of her "brutish" sexual nature.
As the relationship between Lady Chatterley and Mellors develops, they learn more about the interrelation of the mind and the body; she learns that sex is more than a shameful and disappointing act, and he learns about the spiritual challenges that come from physical love.
Neuro-psychoanalyst Mark Blechner identifies the "Lady Chatterley phenomenon" in which the same sexual act can affect people in different ways at different times, depending on their subjectivity.
Yes, this was love, this ridiculous bouncing of the buttocks, and the wilting of the poor insignificant, moist little penis.
This is most evidently seen in the plot; the affair of an aristocratic woman Connie with a working class man Mellors. This is heightened when Mellors adopts the local broad Derbyshire dialect, something he can slip in and out of.
Critic and writer Mark Schorer writes of the forbidden love of a woman of relatively superior social situation who is drawn to an "outsider" a man of lower social rank or a foreigner. He considers this a familiar construction in D. Lawrence's works, in which the woman either resists her impulse or yields to it.
There is a clear class divide between the inhabitants of Wragby and Tevershall, bridged by the nurse Mrs Bolton. Clifford is more self assured in his position, whereas Connie is often thrown when the villagers treat her as a Lady for instance when she has tea in the village.
This is often made explicit in the narration, for instance: Clifford Chatterley was more upper class than Connie. Connie was well-to-do intelligentsiabut he was aristocracy.
Not the big sort, but still it. His father was a baronet, and his mother had been a viscount's daughter. Involved with hard, dangerous and health-threatening employment, the unionised and self-supporting pit-village communities in Britain have been home to more pervasive class barriers than has been the case in other industries for an example, see chapter two of The Road to Wigan Pier by George Orwell.
They were also centres of widespread non-conformist Non-Anglican Protestant religion, which tended to hold especially proscriptive views on matters such as adultery.
