In the distance are the Hardwick New and Old Halls. The 'new' hall was built for the Countess of Shrewsbury between the years 1591 and 1597. The new hall was the inspiration for Chadwick Hall in D.H. Lawrence's novel, Lady Chatterley's Lover  (here)

Note: Lady Chatterley's Lover is a novel by D. H. Lawrence, first published in 1928  An unexpurgated edition could not be published openly in the United Kingdom until 1960.The book soon became notorious for its story of the physical (and emotional) relationship between a working-class man and an upper-class woman, its explicit descriptions of sex, and its use of then-unprintable words. -  Wiki

3 WW:  liberal profane quarrelsome

One really cannot be sure
Liberal attitudes had impacted on
writings in no small way

Not too long ago
There was even a notation
'Lady C Unexpurgated' version
was available in the market
The 4 letter word suddenly appeared
in print and the book had now been
accepted as acceptable

Fast forward to the present
What does one sees these days
Profane language previously
frowned upon are now common

Sexist, blasphemous violent
words spewed without recourse
nor conscience by young and old
alike.More often these are 
quarrelsome, antagonistic and

It is common that one ends up 
with an argument arising from 
a tactless remark

In blogosphere there seems to be 
a gallant and concerted effort  
for everyone in maintaining a clean 
slate in most writings. In gives
undoubtedly an enjoyable read

For Thomg's 3WW


  1. Hear, hear ! ! ! A well articulated point, Hank.

  2. I had better watch my writing in future just in case the urge comes to use such words. I seem to recall that Penguin published "Lady Chatterley's Lover" in 1960 and it was sold out in no time requiring a number of reprints after the courts decided it was literature.

  3. Yes Hank I too remember Lady Chatterley's Lover(not personally). Wonderful post to start my day off.

  4. Sometimes they work but not often.

  5. It can be fun to stir the pot every once and while and see what happens, but for the most part clean slate is the way to be

  6. The best of writings are something anyone can enjoy

  7. I read The Rainbow at school...I couldn't stand it because of the nature of the writing not the content...i suppose it's all about context and taking some responsibility about what you choose to share with others!

  8. I try to keep my blog (and my books) PG so anyone can enjoy them.

    1. And not sure why some of your posts aren't appearing in my feed, Hank.

    2. This is cause for concern. It can happen to others also I guess. Wonder what contributed to this and what can be done. Anyone with any solution?
