Gentleman Jack is a biography of Anne Lister Regency Yorkshire landowner known for her relationships with women and explicit diaries partly written in code Full of uotations from her diaries it is a good biography for anything looking for an introduction to Lister s life and what she wrote about in her diaries Likely to be of most interest are her various relationships with women often surprisingly openly for Regency society and her interest in travel scaling mountains and visiting countries across Europe and even Azerbaijan Steidele also weaves in elements of the act of uncoding Lister s diaries and the reticence of earlier generations to reveal their explicit lesbian sex which is crucial to thinking about the reception of Anne ListerBefore the BBC s upcoming drama of the same name the biography is a good way to learn about a fascinating historical figure It is engaging and readable giving enough explanatory detail that you don t need to know the period well Without knowing a huge amount about scholarship around Lister it is difficult to comment on its accuracy and depiction of her but it certainly is an interesting book

free download Gentleman Jack Angela Steidele À 8 download download å eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF À 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. Please please do not read this book Seriously If you re actually interested in learning about Anne Lister this is not the book for youThis book is judge jury and executioner to its subject which feels like a complete violation of the rules of a biography You can tell just by the table of contents her life is divided up not by milestone events but by the women she seduces Because clearly when someone isn t straight the only interesting thing about them is their sex life Everything else Lister was ever involved or interested in except her travels is dismissed with a couple of lines each Worse the biographer is making blatant value judgements along the way without at any point engaging with the context in which her subject lived In the last third of the book she is openly derisive when describing Lister s activities To be clear it s not that I need this book to be a hagiography I ve read a few books about Lister at this point I get that she could be an asshole But she was also an intelligent woman navigating a man s world in the early 19th century and walking the line of being an out sort of lesbian when there had never been anyone before her to pattern her behaviour on Except men I doubt there would have been half so much judgement had the biographer been recounting the life of a young cad on the hunt for a rich bride Context is important And this biographer has NO grasp of that whatsoever because she clearly doesn t understand the context herself In her final chapter she writes In what we think of as the prudish pre Victorian age there seems to have been no great risk or conseuence to women loving women and it was not thought wrong They simply did not talk about it and went on to marry apparently unsullied Just WHAT How could this biographer have read the works of Jill Liddington and still come out with that kind of clumsy generalization When Liddington s work was all about the subtle ways the community found to express its disapproval of Anne Lister and her wife living together When political rage towards Lister was expressed in the form of homophobic attacks When she received taunting letters in the post and slurs hurled at her in the street throughout her lifeI reference Liddington s work here particularly because the biographer wrote this book without ever having read Anne Lister s diaries for herself She is entirely reliant upon secondary sources The book is basically a recap of Helena Whitbread s and Jill Liddington s works with some additional references to Lister s letters and correspondence thrown in Plus a LOT of editorializing in addition to the steaming piles of judgement the biographer regularly states her own interpretation as though it s proven fact And it s interpretation based often on extremely thin evidenceSo I say again please don t read this book It strips Anne Lister of all depth and complexity Please please go read Jill Liddington s work instead It has just been released on both Kindle and Kobo and occasional hard copies can be found at ABE Books
