The Revitalization Phase of Lady Chatterley’s Lover
We saw that in the mortification phase of Lady Chatterley’s Lover, the narrator uses head-centered techniques to try to dismantle and purge the reader’s modern sexual consciousness. Splits in the reader’s mind are intensified in order to disintegrate them. In the novel’s sacralization phase, which begins with the introduction of Mellors in Chapter V and reaches its highest pitch in the seven sex scenes involving Mellors and Connie in Chapters X–XVI, the aim is to reintegrate and reenergize the reader’s consciousness.
