Oliver Mellors is a pivotal character in Lady Chatterley s Lover
Oliver Mellors is the eponymous lover. Mellors is the gamekeeper on Clifford Chatterley's estate, Wragby Hall. He is aloof, sarcastic, intelligent and noble. He was born near Wragby, and worked as a blacksmith until he ran off to the army to escape an unhappy marriage. In the army, he rose to become a commissioned lieutenant an unusual position for a member of the working classes but was forced to leave the army because of a case of pneumonia, which left him in poor health. Surprisingly, we learn from different characters' accounts that Mellors was in fact finely educated in his childhood, has good table manners, is an extensive reader, and can speak English 'like a gentleman', but chooses to behave like a commoner and speak broad Derbyshire dialect, probably in an attempt to fit into his own community.

Among the characters of literature, Lady Chatterlys lover, Oliver Mellors, ranks stupendous. If there were no Russians or Lou Maytree, he would be top, but alas! I have no references to declare a winner. Like Lou Maytree and some of the Russians Levin pops to mindMellors is a man apart; he stands alone, a totem of humanity.

Mellors was born, the son of coal miner, like DH Lawrence. Also like Lawrence, Mellors was somewhat physically frail, his strength damaged by sickness. A man of the lower classes, Mellors educated himself, he read books, he joined the army where he served under a colonel who befriended him. When the colonel died Mellors had a chance to raise in ranks, become a gentleman, the gentry, but he didnt want to. Their lives were pointless to him. He returned to the mining village in which he was born, to more pettiness. He became a servant, a gamekeeper for the Chatterlys.

Mellors lived alone in the Chatterlys wood, apart from society, which he scorned. He protected ...more
