About the Book

The Well of Loneliness is a revolutionary novel that was published by Radclyffe Hall herself in 1928. It was immediately banned in England because of its lesbian topic and was allowed only in the US after a long court fight. When it was available, The Well of Loneliness sold in excess of 20,000 copies. The story revolves around a girl born into a rich English family named Stephen by her father, who wanted a boy. Radclyffe Corridor conveys the strong message that lesbianism is natural. This message, alongside Radclyffe Hall's depiction of lesbians in masculine stereotypes and feminine roles, caused the book to be written down by feminists in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The Well of Depression is worth reading as it breaks the silence of brutality and passes on a message about homophobia and incorporated shame applicable to lesbians even today.
