    Lady Chatterley's Lover

    The last and most famous of D. H. Lawrence's novels, Lady Chatterley's Lover was published in 1928 and banned in England and the United States as pornographic. While sexually tame by today's standards, the book is memorable for better reasons—Lawrence's masterful and lyrical prose, and a vibrant story that takes us bodily into the world of its characters.As the novel opens, Constance Chatterley finds herself trapped in an unfulfilling marriage to a rich aristocrat whose war wounds have left him paralyzed and impotent. After a brief but unsatisfying affair with a playwright, Lady Chatterley enjoys an extremely passionate relationship with the gamekeeper on the family estate, Oliver Mellors. As Lady Chatterley falls in love and conceives a child with Mellors, she moves from the heartless, bloodless world of the intelligentsia and aristocracy into a vital and profound connection rooted in sexual fulfillment.Through this novel, Lawrence attempted to revive in the human consciousness an awareness of savage sensuality, a sensuality with the power to free men and women from the enslaving sterility of modern technology and intellectualism. Perhaps even more relevant today than when it first appeared, Lady Chatterley's Lover is a triumph of passion and an erotic celebration of life.

    Allen Raine was one of the most popular authors of the turn of the century, with her books selling over a million copies in Britain alone. Queen of the Rushes, first published in 1906, and then by Honno in 1998, has been out of print, but now Allen Raine's powerful and accomplished novel can be enjoyed again.
    Set in a seaside village in West Wales at the time of the 1904 Revival, the novel relates the enthralling tale of the lives and complex loves of Gildas, Nancy, Gwenifer and Captain Jack. Eminently readable, and with touches of humour, this is nevertheless a serious attempt – one of the first in English – to map out a distinctively Welsh literary landscape.
    Katie Gramich's fascinating introduction situates Allen Raine's last novel against its literary background and points to its significance in the Anglo-Welsh tradition and in Welsh Women's writing.
