She was giving up..had to lie down there under the boughs of the tree, like an animal, while he waited, standing there in his shirt and breeches, watching her with haunted eyes...Burnett is an a-political writer, largely content with the status quo; her "Boy Who Became a Socialist," for example, treats as comedy a child's yearning for social justice.Lawrence, on the contrary, is an apocalyptic writer ready to junk the entire apparatus of human civilization.Despite his desire for an heir his impotency results in a lack of sexual activity and Connie is drawn to handsome Oliver Mellors, the plain-spoken former miner her husband has engaged as his game-keeper and who represents the passion she craves.They embark upon a physical affair in Oliver's cottage but are discovered and betrayed by Mrs Bolton.
