(1) This week's quote is a reference to Lady Chatterley's Lover, written by English writer D H Lawrence, born this day 1885. On its publication in the UK in 1960, Penguin Books was put on trial for the book's subject matter, considered to be obscene. The chief prosecutor asked if it were the kind of book "you would wish your wife or servants to read."
