This article details the excruciating process that author D. H. Lawrence went through to get his novel Lady Chatterly's Lover published in the United States. It was censored multiple times, cited as being obscene and offensive, while Lawrence and his lawyers tried to build the case that the novel possessed literary merit. The research used to write this article was based on findings in the Syracuse Univeristy Special Collections.
