Angela Steidele ✓ 9 Summary Characters ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ✓ Angela Steidele Characters Gentleman Jack The extraordinary life of history's first modern lesbian who inspired the television series Gentleman Jack Anne Lister's journals were so shocking that the first person to crack their secret code hid them behind a fake panel in his ancestral home Anne Lister was a Regency landowner an intrepid world traveller and an unabashed lover of other women In thi. A book that will stay with me for weeks to come I suspect It leaves much to ponder upon I ve no hesitation in recommending it especially if British history s your thing social cultural political An interest in diversity might help too along with travel Here you would read how an ambitious and highly charged lesbian on the perimeter of the landed aristocracy sought fulfilment Old money forced because of the turn in the economic tide to mingle with the newThere is much to admire about Anne Lister much less to like Her diary is shocking not so much in the secrets of the boudoir but in the rather brazen accounts of how she manipulated people to her own advantage sexually materially even politically She was totally at ease with her sexuality certainly free from feelings of guilt in an age of moral proscription That ought to make her a gay icon But in today s world where diversity is all important she is totally out of step She was an arch reactionary on the side of the authorities over the Peterloo massacre opposed to the Parliamentary Reform Act of 1832 and the sworn enemy of the infant trade unions As a woman Anne Lister could not of course vote directly in parliamentary elections But as a canny operator of power and the systems at her disposal she could rely on 20 or so votes from her heavily leaned upon tenants It is hard to believe that had she lived into the twentieth century she would have had any truck with the suffragettes Anne Lister had boundless energy physical mental and sexual She was well read cultured a classicist and an inveterate and hardy traveller She was also keenly interested in scientific discovery industrial developments advances in medical science she studied anatomy and was uite at home with a knife in her hand with which she dissected humans and animalsShe lacked the material resources to fund her lifestyle hence her alliance and marriage with Ann Walker new money as opposed to the Listers old As proprietor of her family estates Anne did what had been done for generations before her she married well I feel that her partner Ann Walker deserves a book of her own however slim The Wife s Story perhaps When Anne Lister s physical health finally failed her during her arduous trek with Ann W in and around Russia it was the latter who transported her body back to Halifax to be buried in the family vault there Ann Walker s story is a sad one she was incarcerated in a mental asylum by her family on her return to England There she joined Anne Lister s first lover The Asylum was a growth industry then a useful dumping ground for Society in which to incarcerate troublesome individuals for their own good of course I can t help thinking that had Anne Lister lived she might have done the same and for similar reasons

Angela Steidele ✓ 9 Summary Characters ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ✓ Angela Steidele Characters Gentleman Jack 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. Gentleman Jack was an interesting read on many levels firstly as a commentary on the life of a lesbian in the early 19th century and secondly as an account of a fascinating woman who did some amazing things in the course of her life Anne Lister was certainly uite a character and while I was intrigued by her romantic exploits it was her extensive travels that gripped me This work shines a light on a little known figure who deserves recognition The only reason I give this book four stars rather than five is the fact that at times I found the prose style a little tiresome Although the story captivated me the writing didn t However I certainly recommend this work to readers interested in ueer history or those simply looking to learn about fascinating personalities from the pastI received this book as a free eBook ARC via NetGalley
