In Lady Chatterley’s Lover, D. H. Lawrence had in mind to eliminate both the extremes of an apparent Victorian modesty and the decadence and the modern mechanization of his time, showing the necessity of a revolutionary change with reference to sexual attitudes. For Lawrence, sexuality does not simply belong to the physical body, but also to a complex of fantasies and symbolizations that determine identity.My reading of the novel analyses the body as agent and object of desire, desire that if on the one hand is sexual, on the other is a desire for knowledge.
