Look Anne Lister was a terrible terrible person But if you can stomach reading about pretty much any white male landowner with a host of lovers from the nineteenth century you can handle this Mr Rochester turned female is no less awful and worse because she was a real person But it means something as modern LGBT people to see someone like us openly living their truth hundreds of years ago Anne s girlfriends were all fascinating women and I wanted to know about them and less about her It s a shame that the same virtue of self assurance which led her to lead her life with as much confidence as she did is also the same vice that caused her to hurt the people around her repeatedly and behave incredibly selfishly As the author says first she seduced me then she betrayed me much like her real loversHighly entertaining though the travel towards the end did have me skimming a little And food for thought because my god did Miss Lister manage to bed a lot of women so is lesbianism in history really as rare as we pretend

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

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
