Lady Chatterley: Ten years later

Lady Chatterley: Ten years later; (Feb. 3, 2010)

            I read the book over ten years ago.  I think that I focused on the exciting part and skimmed the rest.  A couple of days ago, I saw a sensible movie on Lady Chatterley on cables; it saw the last part of the movie as usual: that is the beauty of having limitless channels. I got the idea of the manuscript and felt the urge to examine the eventual pragmatic and convincing follow up of the story; thus, Lady Chatterley ten years later.

            There is this touching confidential discourse of the forest attendant or the lover of Constance (Connie).  The lover said what amounted to this “My mother believed that I had a feminine side in me. My nature loves to be alone and abhors mingling with people. I cannot live as normal people do.  I cannot fathom how people work in factories. I lived in my own prison until you came along and opened the door to my prison.  You showed me the world and set me free.”

            Obviously, Connie shed tears and replied “There is nothing wrong of having a female sensitive side in you: that is why I fell in love with you…”

            Now we have a structure based on three parties for their respective comfort and contentment in life.  The crippled lord or the husband of Constance needs his beautiful, elegant, and very sociable asset to his social class.  Otherwise, any other replacement would be potentially far worse for his regular and sheltered life.  Thus, the lord prefers to be generous and forgiving so that his wife feels happier, optimistic, and paying more attention to his emotional demands.

            The wife needs the financial backing of her husband and his social standing in order to resume the “emotional freedom emancipation” of her lover.  She has to secure an autonomous life on a farm for her lover.  Constance finds that she is pregnant and is totally convinced that her husband will adopt her child.  She is planning on visiting her lover on “his farm” paid fully by her husband money.

            Connie told her lover: “You may see other women as long as you don’t tell me”: Man has needs and is bound to fall in temptations as a fact of life.  We all know that Connie will be dropping by unannounced and very frequently on the farm: Constance will make sure that the “sensitivity” of her lover will not get altered by the new acquired freedom.  This lover of nature and aloofness might change his mind and decide to find a wife and then lead a more normal life for his decaying years.

            The structure is definitely a win-win situation for all concerned parties unless one party opts to overturn the table.  Now, let us consider that the child has grown up. Obviously, Connie would want the kid to be raised in an affluent environment and goes to the best recognized private school and the most prestigious university of the period.  Consequently, the lord acquires a dangerous leverage. Senility aiding, the pent up anger of the lord for baffled honor might put the squeeze on his wife.

            By this time, Constance’s lover has fast lost his shining youth and developed the belly of a contented man.  The hell with farm’s life and old lover! Connie would dislodge enough forest attendants in the neighborhood who need to be “freed emotionally” and be grateful to this fat lady: older man might prefer well rounded women with generous heart and purse.

            All is well that lives well in perfect harmony with mankind nature.
