The introduction provides a critical discussion of Radclyffe Hall’s unpublished works. It traces Hall’s career as a writer of fiction and explores the relation between her published and unpublished works. It examines Hall’s engagement with a wide range of topics, including outsiderism, sexuality, gender, feminism, religion, class, race, the supernatural, and World War I, and situates her work in the context of early twentieth-century literature and culture. Overall, the introduction argues that the critical understanding of Hall’s literary writings has remained flawed due to a narrow focus on The Well of Loneliness and demonstrates how the new materials presented in this volume can serve to enrich significantly scholarly perspectives
