Biography

Marguerite Antonia Radclyffe-Hall was an English poet and author best known for her moving novel, The Well of Loneliness, which was an earnest appeal for sexual tolerance. The financial security provided by an inheritance from her grandfather allowed Hall the freedom to pursue writing full-time, and she went on to pen fifteen novels and poetry collections during her career. She was a member of the PEN club and a recipient of Gold Medal of the Eichelbergher Humane Award. Hall died in 1943 from colon cancer.
