Product description


Though the sexologists may not have invented the idea of the "invert" or "homosexual" until the late 1800s, lesbians in Britain were creating a subculture that acknowledged and in some cases celebrated their "oddity" from at least the beginning of the 18th century. This book documents for the first time the history of lesbian cultures and identities during the 1700s, from hermaphrodites to female husbands, bisexual triangles to maids and mistresses, dildo-users to tribades' clubs, romantic friendships to soul sisters. Emma Donoghue weaves material drawn from a rich mix of sources, including literature, treatises, letters and diaries, into a readable account of an undiscovered part of lesbian history.
