Originally published in 1928, Radclyffe Hall’'s The Well of Loneliness is the thinly disguised story of the author’s own life-the struggle of a lesbian couple to be accepted by polite society. Shockingly candid for its time, it was the first book to condemn society for its harsh treatment of gays and lesbians and was banned upon publication. It was again written off-this time by feminists in the late 1970s and early 1980s for its portrayal of lesbians in stereotypical “butch” and “femme” roles. Still controversial after 60 years, the novel is a landmark work and a timeless story.
