Themes

In Lady Chatterley's Lover Lawrence comes full circle to argue once again for individual regeneration, which can be found only through the relationship between man and woman (and, he asserts sometimes, man and man).

Without the new values engendered from such a love relationship, he believes, humanity is doomed. The destructive consequences of frigidity and the will-to-power can be avoided only if social regeneration results from indi vidual regeneration. In Lady Chatterley's Lover Constance Chatterley, a baronet's wife, and Oliver Mellors, a gamekeeper, find such regeneration; at the end of the book they are preparing to leave England, from which all warmth and human relationship has been drained, for a life in the New World.

As in The Man Who Died (1931), another of his late meditations, Lawrence suggests in Lady Chatterley's Lover that humankind must be awakened to spontaneity if it is to survive.
