dc.description.abstract The author explores a range of fictional works written by lesbians and containing lesbian protagonists, through the framework of lesbian identity stage models. The relative merits of five models are compared in describing the process of lesbian identity establishment. The historical development of the lesbian novel is then traced. The author finds that limitations of stage models include their use of linear progression and goal-oriented design, which contrast with both actual and fictional portrayals of lesbian identity progression as continuous, non-linear, and process-oriented. The author uses this research of lesbian fiction as a springboard for her own creative writing, a sample of which is excerpted here. en
