Lady Chatterley’s Lover was not only Lawrence’s last and easily his most notorious novel; it was the largest literary undertaking of the last four years of his life, and earned him more money than any other of his writings. It effectively relieved him from financial cares at just the time when — extremely ill during 1929 and early in 1930 (he died in March) — he needed to be able to rest and not bother about writing; when he would otherwise have been unable, for the first time since 1918, to earn his living.
