Summary
"The highly publicized obscenity trial of Radclyffe Hall's 'The Well of Loneliness' (1928) is generally recognized as the crystallizing moment in the construction of a visible modern English lesbian culture. Drawing on extensive new archival research, 'Fashioning Sapphism' locates Radclyffe Hall and other prominent lesbians within English modernity through the multiple sites of law, sexology, fashion, and literary and visual representation - thus tracing the emergence of a modern English lesbian subculture in the decade after the First World War." -- back cover
