About the Title

Originally titled Tenderness, D.H. Lawrence changed the title to Lady Chatterley's Lover to highlight the relationship between Connie Chatterley and the man she falls in love with. The use of her title rather than her first name reflects her upper-class social standing, which is significant because her lover belongs to a lower class.
