This is a brave book, not only because it graphically portrayed sex during a time when that was taboo but also because of the ideas it puts forth about the role of sex and physicality in a meaningful, true, honest life.

Because of this philosophy, Lawrence really is the daddy to Henry Miller, but Lawrence is much more thoughtful and philosophical about it. In the intro to my edition, there is a quote where Lawrence says he sees fiction as a way to bring philosophy into life, which is why I think I've loved the two books I've read by him. I love his ideas. And that's why this book isn't just a dirty book worthy of attention because it was banned.
