Well, I wouldn't exactly call it sexual litteracy, but it WAS too sexual for censors until about the '70s. Kinda late, considering the book was written a little after WWI.

What I found interesting about the book was that although parts of it were sexually graphic, the writing style of most of the book was very old-fashioned, which makes for a really interesting read.

Go to www.sparknotes.com and find it, if you're interested in learning more about it, and I'm certain there's a copy in most libraries.

D.H Lawrence was a brilliant, incredible man, and quite ahead of his time.

If you like that one, you may also like "Women in Love," which I actually find a far better novel.

His poetry is also exceptional.

Okay, I'm reading Women in Love now. I'm on about the 4th chapter and am very afraid of Hermione.
