Description

These remarkable diaries are a piece of lost lesbian history. Anne Lister defied the role of womanhood seen within the novels of Jane Austen: she used to be bold, fiercely independent, a landowner, industrialist, traveller – and lesbian. She kept extensive diaries, written partly in code, of her life and loves., The diaries have been edited by Helena Whitbread, who spent years decoding and transcribing them.'[Anne Lister’s] sense of self, and self-awareness, is what makes her up to date to us. She used to be a woman exercising conscious choice. She controlled her cash and her body., At a time when women needed to marry, or be looked after by a male family member, and when all their property on marriage passed to their husband, Anne Lister not only dodged the traps of being female, she set up a liaison with any other woman that enhanced her own wealth and left either one of them free to live as they wished . . ., The diaries gave me courage’ Jeanette Winterson’Engaging, revealing, every now and then simply astonishing: Anne Lister’s diaries are an indispensable read for any person interested within the history of gender, sexuality, and the intimate lives of girls’ Sarah Waters
