She goes more and more to the hut in the woods where Mellors, the gamekeeper, is breeding pheasants to hunt.One day, in a spasm of hopeless tenderness for the young chicks, she has a breakdown at the hut.In its time, Lady Chatterley's Lover was considered radically graphic; the difficulty with Lawrence's depiction of sex scenes is not quite a failure of graphic description, but rather a tendency towards the obscure and mystical.
It was like bells rippling up and up to a culmination.She lay unconscious of the wild little cries she uttered at the last.They leave each other, and Mellors--now torn from his solitude--muses about the importance of desire and tenderness, and the evils of the mechanized industrial world.For her part, Connie is confused: she knows that she does not love Mellors, but is happy that he has been kind not to her personality--to her mind and intellect, which she is coming to believe are meaningless--but to "the female in her."The next day, they meet once again at the hut.She is in a dreamworld, truly conscious only of the warmth inside of her.
Clifford, on the other hand, is empty inside, beginning now to resent the distance between them.It is worth spending some time discussing the nature of her revelation, and the way in which this becomes the basis of the relationship between her and Mellors.What should be noted first is that the novel's approach to the significance of sex and sexual relationships is quite vague. This owes something to Lawrence's difficulty or reticence in clearly describing sexual scenes.For several days after, Connie does not go to meet Mellors in the cabin. Although she says she does not want to have sex, he lays her down on the forest floor, and she complies.Instead, one afternoon she takes tea with a friend of hers, Mrs. This time, she has an orgasm simultaneous with his second orgasm, and the impact on her is profound.The reader will also recall Lawrence's contortions when trying to describe Connie's naked body at the beginning of chapter seven; I, at least, have no idea what "glimpsey" thighs or "meaningful" breasts look like.
