Kurzbeschreibung

1. Januar 2014 184022455X 978-1840224559 New edition
'As a man loved a woman, that was how I loved...It was good, good, good...' Stephen is an ideal child of aristocratic parents - a fencer, a horse rider and a keen scholar. Stephen grows to be a war hero, a bestselling writer and a loyal, protective lover. But Stephen is a woman, and her lovers are women. As her ambitions drive her, and society confines her, Stephen is forced into desperate actions. The Well of Loneliness was banned for obscenity when published in 1928. It became an international bestseller, and for decades was the single most famous lesbian novel. It has influenced how love between women is understood, for the twentieth century and beyond.

3.0 von 5 Sternen an important but flawed piece of fiction 13. März 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
i just translated the book into chinese so i guess i did some pretty close reading :). while the novel is undoubtedly a milestone in the history of english literature, lesbian culture, and the battle against censorship, its literary merits leave something to be desired. radclyffe hall's prose is ornate and even over-dramatizing at times, and i find the frequent insertion of french phrases and sentences redundant and affected. the situations and emotions are relevant, poignant, and often depicted with insight, but because the mood and the tone of the narrative is so persistently intensive it does tend to get tedious after a while--which can be well before one finishes the book.
it seems quite obvious that stephen gordon, the heroine (or should i say hero?) of the book, would never have questioned the moral conventions and gender roles of her times, had she not been born to be what she was--in short, a male soul trapped inside a female body (though hall, true to her style, never just says so). for she totally identified herself with a (upper-class) society of so-called respectability, honor, refinement, etc., which constitutes a mentality not really, uh, let's say "progressive". while crying out against the outrage against and persecution of lesbians and gays, stephen remained disconcertingly vague in her attitude toward effeminate males (such as the character jonathan brockett), feeling much more at ease with and indeed seeking the acceptance of straight (and presumably manly) men.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read for anyone who has loved and lost. 14. November 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I was a late-bloomer to Ms.Hall`s novel. I was given the paperback by an "ex" 12 years ago. She said to me as our relationship ended, "Read this Sean! It sounds like your life!" And so I read about the tormented Stephen coming to turns with his/her gender and sexuality. Brought into the world with a silver spoon and cared for by a "favorite" nanny. Never quite fitting in with ones peers and yet having numerous friends of both sexes. A mother who resented her husband`s devotion to you and a sister who fit in perfectly. It could be anyone`s story or no one`s. But it does reflect the times, then and now. If you have ever felt "different" in your life, a round peg trying to fit in a square peg world or are "accepted" as is. This is your novel.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Hall strikes a nerve 18. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
While I find Hall's prose less than perfect, her take on lesbian life from childhood to adolescence to adulthood is realistic emotionally. It's very easy to relate to Stephen, the main character who must pass all the trials of lesbianhood, including unrequited love and rejection by her mother. I recommend it to anyone who has some time on their hands who wants an inside view into the mind of a lesbian.

4.0 von 5 Sternen eye-opener 10. Januar 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Over a half a century ago (how's that again?) this
book informed me of a human trait that I had never
known existed.It might even today be a sensitive
introduction for some who decry,perhaps to the point
of denial,that it does exist.

A correction to your review. The lead characters were
not lesbians, as I recall. They were young men.
