Abstract

The Well of Loneliness—the Radclyffe Hall novel at times referred to as "the bible of lesbianism"—was released in Britain in 1928 and was immediately controversial. Pronounced obscene following a sensational trial, the book has become a cultural icon as well as a source of considerable debate, especially among feminists, lesbians, and transgendered persons. Palatable Poison gathers together classic essays on Radclyffe Hall's book as well as new piecesits unique place in the literature of sexual nonconformity.
