88. Lady Chatterley's Lover by D. H. Lawerence

When it was first published in 1928, this best known D. H. Lawerence novel was banned as obscene. Its explicit scenes and language and the breaking of social taboos were controversial when it was eventually published in full in 1960. Sir Clifford Chatterley returns from World War One a broken man, paralysed from the waist down. He has returned to his country seat, Wragby and a different world. Lady Constance Chatterley has an affair with their gamekeeper Oliver Mellors who has also been changed by his time abroad in the army.
