Description

In May 2005 Penguin will publish 70 unique titles to celebrate the company's 70th birthday. The titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality of the Penguin list and will hark back to Penguin founder Allen Lane's vision of good books for all'. In 1960, thirty years after D. H. Lawrence's death, Penguin moved to publish his most provocative novel Lady Chatterley's Lover for the first time. What followed was the most significant literary obscenity trial of the twentieth century, as Penguin called upon a string of expert witnesses including E. M. Forster and Sir Allen Lane to triumphantly defend the book's literary merit, in a case that compellingly reflected the changing face of contemporary society.show more
