Nell in Bridewell [Paperback]

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

22 Sep 2003
‘Nell in Bridewell’ is the story, in the form of fiction based on fact, of a young girl who experienced the horrors and indignities of a 19th Century House of Correction in Germany. In this book, Nell describes in graphic terms the merciless floggings she witnessed—of girls and young women, as well as of boys and men—and confesses to disturbingly confusing emotions that such sights occasioned in her. She recalls the lustful expressions on the faces of the onlookers, records the fervent words of gratitude to the skillful flogger from the lips of grand ladies who "were only to delighted to see such girls whipped", and tells of the evidently sensual appetites such cruelties incited in the torturers. She re-lives in vivid detail the dreadful whipping she herself was subjected to—the so-called "Welcome", a public flogging with a bull’s pizzle.
