Lady Chatterley's Lover , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Lady Chatterley's Lover, written in 1928, tells the story of a passionate love affair between an upper class woman and her husband’s gamekeeper, which was thought to be so shocking in its content and its straightforward use of explicit sexual terms, that it was not officially published until 1960. Its 1961 second edition contained this dedication from the publisher: "For having published this book, Penguin Books were prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act, 1959 at the Old Bailey in London from 20 October to 2 November 1960. This edition is therefore dedicated to the twelve jurors, three women and nine men, who returned a verdict of 'Not Guilty' and thus made D. H. Lawrence's last novel available for the first time to the public in the United Kingdom." Now firmly established as a classic of English literature that was written well before its time, what saved it from being banned for ever was its literary merit, upheld by some of the most distinguished writers and critics of the time. Lawrence’s prescient musings on the changes in society and his authentic depiction of two unhappily married people, finding in this most unlikely and potentially doomed coupling the physical and emotional balance that they both crave, are as relevant today as they were then. Have a listen! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Veronika Hyks. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/aqur/000012/bk_aqur_000012_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Hamish Hamilton

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Hamish Hamilton Limited was a British book publishing house, founded in 1931 eponymously by the half-Scot half-American Jamie Hamilton (Hamish is the vocative form of the Gaelic 'Seamus' [meaning James], James the English form - which was also his given name, and Jamie the diminutive form). Confusingly, Jamie Hamilton was often referred to as Hamish Hamilton. The publishing brand Hamish Hamilton is currently an imprint of Penguin Books. Hamish Hamilton Limited originally specialized in fiction, and was responsible for publishing a number of American authors in the United Kingdom - including J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye. Hamish Hamilton Law and Hamish Hamilton Medical were started in 1939 but closed during the war. Hamish Hamilton was established in the literary district of Bloomsbury and went on to publish a large number of promising British and American authors, a large number of whom were personal friends and acquaintances of Jamie Hamilton. Jamie Hamilton sold the firm to the Thomson Organisation in 1965, who resold it to Penguin Books in 1986
