Example text

The defence does not say that that is an inappropriate way of putting the matter, that it might be difficult or futile to determine the difference between a dirty book and a non-dirty book. Instead, it claims that Lady Chatterley’s Lover is an exceptionally clean or wholesome book. Where the prosecution is saying that it will have a deleterious effect on public and private morality, the defence says not only that it won’t but that it will have an effect that is positively salutary. In other words, the defence too adopts the categories of clean and dirty, wholesome and unwholesome, moral and immoral.

20 But there is no suggestion that indiscriminate or noncommital sexual involvements might be acceptable. ’21 The case is also made on the grounds of the sanctity of marriage and the indispensability to this of a sexual relationship. According to this argument, Constance’s marriage to Lord Chatterley is effectively null and void, not an issue, because it cannot include sex. The real marital relationship of the novel is that of Constance and Oliver, who are working their way towards the complete union that is marriage in the proper, spiritual sense.

The declaration of unconditional love ‘at first sight, at last sight’ occurs not at the start, but after Humbert has controlled (and then lost control of) her life for some years, and when she no longer looks like the girl he originally fell for. Possession is followed, not preceded, by a quest (after Lolita goes off with Quilty). And far from being an encounter between strangers walking on a city street, the meeting with Lolita and Humbert takes place in an utterly familial setting: on the lawn of the suburban house where they will soon be living together.
