CHARACTERS ✓ Gentleman Jack Angela Steidele Î 0 CHARACTERS READ ó PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Î Angela Steidele S bold new biography prizewinning author Angela Steidele uses the diaries to create a portrait of Anne Lister as we've never seen her before a woman in some ways very much of her time and in others far ahead of it Anne Lister recorded everything from the most intimate details of her numerous liaisons through to her plans to make her fortune by exploitin. I initially picked this book up for two reasons The first is as I work in a bookshop keeping up to date with upcoming releases makes my life much easier when talking to customers about the books they were based on HBO is dramatising Anne Lister s life specifically they are basing their interpretation off this particular biography The other reason is that as a gay woman I am always hungry for LGBT history in any form I wanted desperately to feel some sort of connection to hook my own longings onto the chain of women before me and not feel so isolated in my experiences Alas rather than find any kind of unity I found myself hating Anne Lister with every turn of the page She was an egomaniac finding fault in all of her lovers for swathes of reasons all of them demonstrating about Anne s personality flaws and inflated pride than damning any of her rejected women She found some too unintelligent others weren t rich enough others too far below her in social standing She didn t like any woman who had slept with a man preferring virgins who had not been spoiled She didn t like her lovers to be assertive preferring them passive and docile both in the bedroom and in day to day life Monogamy was boring for her but rather than tell her various lovers that she preferred to lie and uite literally cheat Freuently many of them understandably suffered from break downs and depression which Anne hilariously never fathoms that she herself might be the cause Two of her lovers ended up in mental asylums the first and the last the first Eliza Raine Anne encouraged to have incarcerated for life so she would be unable to testify against her in court It s not the biographers fault if the subject is repulsive but I also found Steidele s approach too neutral and lacking any kind of spark It was like reading a chart of a life rather than steeping myself in the time and world of Anne Lister Anyway if you re going into this looking for any kind of familiarity I will be greatly concerned if you find any As a record the history of love between women it is a great starting off point there are several names dropped in this book that I want to explore further but is hardly in depth I have no idea how to end this review so uhhhhToodles

Okay I think I need to take a break from this book because it is depressing the hell out of me The research I do on Anne Lister the it becomes clear that she wasin facta horrible human being I sort of went from thinking well she was a flawed human being like all of us and it s unfair for me to hold her as a ueer woman to a higher moral standard than I would hold a man from the same era to thinking Jesus Christ even Byron never did anything THAT fucked up And I know it shouldn t upset me so much to find out that a random woman who s been dead for hundreds of years was a total monster but I amdevastated So I might just stop researching her and pretend that Anne as she is in the BBC show and Anne as she was in real life are two completely different unrelated individuals After all as somebody pointed out to me when I was complaining about all this the moral discrepancy between the characters of Brooklyn 99 and their real life counterparts hasn t ruined that show for me
