      it should be MANDATORY that everyone reads this book. everyone. there isn't anything too astounding about her writing style, and nothing too "deep" about it either. anyone could pick up this book and see clearly everything she's very clearly alluding to, so there isn't much mystery, but instead, a whole lot of straightforward honesty about an aspect of the world most overlook without even realizing.what broke back mountain failed miserably in doing, ratcliffe did with ease. this isn't some kinky [...]

      what could have been a fascinating chronicle of a tough butch interloper challenging mainstream society becomes the drippy tale of a woman who just wants to be loved, and the cruel little bitch who leads her on. oh what a deep well! the writing's pretty swell though, that can't be denied. tres elegante. i was reminded of e.m. forster's equally drippy, equally beautiful (but rather more enjoyable) Maurice. plus i actually preferred the wish fulfillment of Maurice, sad to say. guess i'm not such a [...]

      ‘God,’ she gasped, we believe; we have told You we believe . . . We have not denied You, then rise up and defend us. Acknowledge us, oh God, before the whole world. Give us also the right to our existence!’First things first, the cover on this edition is absurdly unrepresentative of the book. Second, I liked the book. I would even recommend the book - it's just that it should come with a few notes:1. It is endlessly long. And detailed. For no purpose. Whatsoever. If the length of the book [...]

    4. Joseph on said:

      A surprisingly good book that is not widely read. The Well of Loneliness has been known as the Lesbian Bible and was written in 1928. It was quite an edgy book for its time. The book itself is more about gender than orientation. The female lead, Stephen, leads a tom-boyish childhood. She hunts, fences, rides her horse but not side saddle fashion. She is also a collage of several people unintentionally. She is built like Vita Sackville-West and will become a writer. Like Sackville-West and her fi [...]

    5. Bill on said:

      this book was banned in England on publication in 1928, which of course made it a huge bestseller. and as it was published in France and the USA, it was easy to obtain copiesd, of course, it is so tame by today's standards. the most explicit line in the book is "she kissed her full on the lips, like a lover". but the powers that be in England judged anything even hinting at lesbianism to be immoral any event, it is a very fine novel, on it's own merits, and I really enjoyed it. the author uses t [...]

    6. Jardley on said:

      I read The Well of Loneliness because of was very interested in reading novels on homosexuality. I needed something to relate to. The book centers around a girl whose father desperately wanted a boy and so named her Stephen. Throughout her childhood Stephen is shown as a girl unlike others. The way she carries herself, the way she acts and the fantasies she has about seeing herself as "Nelson", stress the fact Stephen sexuality is in question. As she grow, Stephen begins to find love in women an [...]

    7. Jesse on said:

      Recently in these parts I declared that this novel was so dull that today it is essentially unreadable, and that its lasting importance has everything to do with history and not a thing to do with art. And I still generally stand behind these sentiments. BUT.I read it. And I kind of enjoyed it, at least in parts. I had based the above judgements on reading the first 60 pages or so (in retrospect the weakest section of the entire novel) and upon my decision to incorporate it in a paper on the que [...]

    8. Stef Rozitis on said:

      This book moves slowly and thoughtfully through many shades of tragedy. There's a sort of integrity to it. Not all readers will appreciate the Christian symbolism and theology but I did- the constant please for meaning and acceptance by a sort of outcast. A few times I sort of experienced Stephen as unrelatable because of how ridiculously wealthy she was, but then there were people like Jamie and Barbara to add counterpoint to it, there was just enough shown of the servants to undo the idea that [...]

    9. Natasha (Diarist) Holme on said:

      I read this the first time around in 1988, during my first term at university, hiding it from my room mate, under the covers. I enjoyed it then as the third lesbian book I'd ever read (after Patience & Sarah and Annie on My Mind), but found it harsh.Slogging through it a second time now, for the Lesbian Book Club book of the month, it felt interminable. No detail is left unmentioned. Oh wait "and that night they were not divided." Just the odd detail lacking. That one sentence caused the bo [...]

    10. Jon on said:

      If one thinks of "The Well of Loneliness" as having been written by a homophobic, sexist straight man then it begins to make sense. The central character (and stand-in for author Radclyffe Hall) is not a self-loathing lesbian at all, he's a transgendered man, and he's not exactly gay-friendly. The identification of Jonathan Brockett as gay by describing his hands as being “as white and soft as a woman’s,” for example, emphasizes Stephen’s conflicted feelings about his own sexuality and t [...]

    11. Lori on said:

      I remember checking this book out of the public library near my house and hiding it from my parents, so I must have been about 12 the first time I read it. It lived under my mattress for about three days while I read it. I think I checked out "One in Ten" along with it, heh.The first time I read this book, I thought it was amazing. A queer love story from what seemed like forever ago! Wow! At the time, I felt alone and isolated, and it spoke to me. My second reading in college was not nearly as [...]

    12. Marina on said:

      Reading this book proved incredibly difficult. I was unsure how to rate it, but decided for 2 stars in the end: the story is a very good one, extremely interesting, but the writing is so dull you can't begin to understand if you haven't read it. I'm sorry to have to say this, but it's what I felt about this book.I understand why it is such an important book in literary history, but I really, really disliked it.First of all, I don't really know why this should be considered as a story of lesbian [...]

    13. Nickie on said:

      Yerk. This is/was obviously a very important book, so it feels a shame to give it such a low grade but jaysus it was a bit painful after the novelty of the first 200 pages had worn off. The fact that it deals with lesbianism/gender issues in such a forthright way, especially for the time in which it was written ('20s)is v impressive. Orlando came out in the same year, but it doesn't deal with it as explicitly. No more than something like Twelfth Night did. Anyway, in the case of The Well - impor [...]

    14. Liz on said:

      I really like this book, but found it very, very depressing. Not depressing in a 'Im gonna slit my wrist with the sharp edges of the pages' depressed, more like a 'why is the word so cruel, where is my God now?' kind of depressed. I really don't think the main protagonist Stephen needed to suffer so much; if Hall was trying to empower the 'inverted' and educate the mass about the 'inverted' I think she was smoking too many pipes, because if I had been 'inverted' in those days I would have weighe [...]

    15. El on said:

      I love reading books that have at some point been a source of controversy, the books that have been banned and censored, questioned and attacked. The Well of Loneliness is one of those books, and by looking at the cover of the edition I read there's a clue right there as to the reasoning for the controversy: "A 1920s Classic of Lesbian Fiction".Steven Gordon is a wealthy English woman who is clearly not like other women, even from a young age. Her father had hoped for a boy and pinned those hope [...]

    16. Jamie on said:

      So I read this for a Lesbian Literatures course, and I have to state from the outset that I am well aware of the *significance* of the novel in such a course, and such a subset of lesbian history. Certainly it was landmark, insofar as the book was one of the (perhaps THE?) first to openly deal with homosexual or inverted desire. Moreover, the trial that banned the book brought the novel, Radclyffe Hall, and the 'lesbian identity' into the public eye in a rather big way. All very well and good.Ho [...]

    17. Laura on said:

      This is possibly the most beautiful book I have ever read. The prose is simply exquisite. Hall proves that imagery does not have to be tedious and overwraught. I felt a hundred times while reading this novel that I had never heard such a sentiment expressed so perfectly. In fact, sometimes the prose was so beautiful that the context almost faded away entirely, and I was simply left with a breath-taking sentence, paragraph or moreSadly, this book is still relevant 90 years after it was penned. I [...]

    18. Nikki on said:

      I don't know what to think of The Well of Loneliness. I read it because it's a lesbian classic, and someone said that it was one of the first novels where horrible things don't have to happen to its lesbian protagonists. I can't actually imagine anything more agonising than what the protagonist, Stephen, does -- voluntarily giving up her lover to a male close friend to give her safety and security, acting as a martyr for her And Barbara and Jamie: both of them die because of the life they lead, [...]

    19. Meg on said:

      Funny enough I find the character of Stephen quite similar to the character of Jo in Louisa May Alcott's Little Women. Both would have preferred to be men and both find the demeanor, dress and lifestyle expectations of women in their day to be dreary. Stephen is simply the sisterless, unloved, rich version of Jo.Something about the choices Hall makes with the character of Stephen highlight her gender and sexual differences in a way that Alcott does not. They have many of the same thoughts, eeril [...]

      Conclusions, casually presented and in no particular order because I don't feel like putting together a well-written review.• Bless, this book is so very of its time. This is wonderful when it is waxing poetic about the English countryside or pre-war Paris; it is less so anytime black people are present or even alluded to. Also the pervasive (and I don't think entirely conscious) disdain for femme gender presentation -- god, the bits where the narration is picking on poor Jonathan Brockett and [...]

    21. Jasmine on said:

      WOWwhere do I even start? This is honestly one of the most thought provoking and emotionally charged books that I have ever read.Why thought provoking? Because it made me think about so many aspects of my own life that had been challenged by the mostly bigoted and homophobic society that I live in. Through Stephen, Hall touches upon the many challenges and struggles that LGBT people had to put up with (and still have to put up with) today. Yes - that's right - if we are honest with ourselves, no [...]

    22. Melanti on said:

      I went into this thinking that it was the first lesbian romance novel, but it turns out that it's neither a romance, nor (technically) about a lesbian. While Stephan has a couple of romantic partners, that's far from the focus of the book. Instead, it's more about Stephan's feelings of inadequacy and alienation due to her sexual orientation. While it's clear that Stephan is in love with Mary, the writing about those emotions feels a great deal more restrained than the scenes where she's wishing [...]

    23. Jeremy George on said:

      I realised the beauty of this book when, halfway through, i looked up at the sky and realised i too was stuck in the well of loneliness - sitting next to the protagonist as she read the bleak poetic prose out loud to me.

      So, Stephen She's born sometime in the late 18-somethings to well off parents, they call her Stephen because her parents have wanted and somewhat expected a boy child for about 10 years, and her father wants to stick with the name they chose. As it turns out, they did pretty much get a boy. As a child stephen likes to pretend she's Nelson, fancies herself in love with the housemaid, throws her dolls away, wears trousers and rides astride her horse like a boy.Her father is very supportive, and wh [...]

      This is what I wanted Orlando to be, and more. It's beautifully written and a hugely important part of queer canon, so I'm able to forgive the kind of overwhelming femmephobia and lack of any agency given to Mary, particularly at the end. Also, I am a general sucker for 20s/30s queer Europe. Mostly Weimar Germany, but interwar Paris, too.

      *4.5? 4.8?*Do the best you can, no man can do more — but never stop fighting. For us there is no sin so great as despair, and perhaps no virtue so vital as courage.Um. Wow.I came across this book in my many forays of pre-Stonewall queer history when I was writing a novelization of queer 1920s New York. Lucky for my research, my main characters were male, but I still came across the few and far between primary source fictions of queer women and bookmarked them. I received this book as a gift th [...]

    28. Jamie on said:

      A book that was outright banned after its 1928 publication for depicting a lesbian relationship, the writing style was too old-fashioned and dense for my taste. I think I'll try "The Price of Salt" instead.
