    What a sad little love story, not at all racy, and hardly anything to get one s knickers in a twist I guess I can say that I read it.

    This book, another entry in the late career series of According to Spike Milligan parodies, is sadly not up to the brilliant standard that Spike demonstrated in his early fiction work, nor in his autobiographies It is obvious to anyone who is familiar with Milligan s corpus of comedic writing that by the time this book came out he was almost empty of any original ideas and he was recycling much of his past jokes and comedy tropes His obsessive surrealism of taking passages to their litera This book, another entry in the late career series of According to Spike Milligan parodies, is sadly not up to the brilliant standard that Spike demonstrated in his early fiction work, nor in his autobiographies It is obvious to anyone who is familiar with Milligan s corpus of comedic writing that by the time this book came out he was almost empty of any original ideas and he was recycling much of his past jokes and comedy tropes His obsessive surrealism of taking passages to their literal Goonish end is shown to be worn out, run down in this piss take of Lawrence s controversial novel At times it sputters into life, generating a few laughs here and there However this is not prime Milligan.Perhaps the most positive thing one can say about this book is that Milligan delivers a knee to the cruets of Lawrence s reputation Truth be told Lawrence s prose can be turgid and faintly ridiculous and Spike aims some decent blows against these aspects of his inspiration It s when Spike does little to dilute or alter the original text of Lady Chatterly s Lover that he does his best work, pointing out the absurdity of the language or the imagery in the source book.I would love to recommend this book however I can t give itpraise than its due, even though it is from Spike Milligan I would suggest it s only going to really appeal to those who want to complete their collection of his work

    Michaelis must seem to the reader, at first, that he is Lady Chatterly s lover However, he is only practice for the lover to come, an easing into her loverliness Initially, he is in himself satisfying, but then not Lady Chatterly realizes he will not bring her even sexual satisfaction, let alone love.Lawrence, through Connie, really lambastes industrial England As John Edwards speaks of two political Americas, Lawrence describes, laments the two Englands, how the industrial is blotting out Michaelis must seem to the reader, at first, that he is Lady Chatterly s lover However, he is only practice for the lover to come, an easing into her loverliness Initially, he is in himself satisfying, but then not Lady Chatterly realizes he will not bring her even sexual satisfaction, let alone love.Lawrence, through Connie, really lambastes industrial England As John Edwards speaks of two political Americas, Lawrence describes, laments the two Englands, how the industrial is blotting out the agricultural, and this is set in the mid 1920s Fitzgerald s observation of America during the same period has a certain prescience of what is to come More andpollution Lawrence s pollution is perhaps a metaphor for a different kind of poison.Lawrence s lovemaking scenes are ever so erotic Lovely It is life itself To write without even an allusion to sex is a kind of dishonesty Everyone thinks about it, does it or doesn t but wants to, ignores though one can t really ignore yearnings that manifest themselves physically.Sexual complexity Mellors gives voice to his desires and how women he s had have been of certain types He seems to idealize what a woman should be, what his sexual relationship with them should be Lawrence is plowing new ground here, and it is plenty rocky I so admire the erotic nature of his sex love scenes, because they are based in the particular, not glossed over with metaphor Yet he does achieve metaphor after or through the particular sexual act These scenes are NOT pornographic They are human They are a fine example of what I d like to achieve in any sex scenes I write in the future.When Lawrence moves the novel to Venice, the narrative pace slows The drama that has been building is truncated Why would he do this The novel, except for some fine descriptions, leaves the realm of the physical world It all becomes a matter of certain machinations getting the characters from here to there to finish off the novel What if Connie had stayed and fought It seems possible Lawrence has limned Chatterly as such a strong rebellious woman Why could she not Hester Prynne style have stayed and fought

    Very scandalous I heard that this book was pretty dull except for the naughty bits, well the naughty bits are the majority of the book I had to keep flipping to the copyright page to remind myself that this was published in the 1930s What s also interesting is that there s also the argument in the book against the mechanization of mankind and for real men and real women who are in touch with their bodies and not ashamed of them There s a lot of fear of industrialization in here and a lot Very scandalous I heard that this book was pretty dull except for the naughty bits, well the naughty bits are the majority of the book I had to keep flipping to the copyright page to remind myself that this was published in the 1930s What s also interesting is that there s also the argument in the book against the mechanization of mankind and for real men and real women who are in touch with their bodies and not ashamed of them There s a lot of fear of industrialization in here and a lot of scorn for people who label themselves as intellectuals This book gave me a lot of things to chew on Of course there were a few things that made me wince since this is a book about sexual politics in the 1930s, there s a lot of submission that the main character undergoes There s also a lot of talk that is pretty amusing, like mounds of venus and such There was also some repetition, but I don t know if that s the fault of the translation I was reading or the book itself

    Marvellous, magnificent and morose are all words that do not describe this book although covers, chapters and capital letters do I now feel that the need to read the original D H Lawrence version defunct as Spike Milligan has plagiarised all the best bits especially Mellor s delicate white loins.

    Evensex than I remembered from first reading some 40 years ago There s a bit of storyline, too, but most interesting as a historical curiosity and for its notoriety than anything else Glad it was short.
