Much of Havelock Ellis' body of work is readily available online, but it can be difficult to navigate his writings, because of the diversity and sheer volume of his output. This page is still a work in progress, but it will eventually offer a database of links to Ellis' published and unpublished writings together with brief summaries and comments.
- The New Spirit (1890): Ellis' first book-length publication gives insight into his interest in literary culture. The first edition contains chapters on Diderot, Heine, Whitman, Ibsen and Tolstoi. In the important preface and introduction, Ellis expresses his belief in the new scientific spirit that will facilitate a more open and unfettered understanding of the world.
- Sexual Inversion (1897/1915): Ellis famously co-authored (with John Addington Symonds) the first medical book on sexual inversion to be published in England. Although it was the first volume to appear in his Studies in the Psychology of Sex, it was later published as the second volume in the series. The link given here is to the revised and enlarged third edition of Sexual Inversion, which appeared in 1915. The second edition (1901) is also available online. The much rarer first edition has recently been published in a highly recommended critical edition by Ivan Crozier.
- Kanga Creek: An Australian Idyll (1922): In the 1870s, Ellis worked as a teacher in a remote school in New South Wales, Australia. After his return to England, encouraged by Olive Schreiner, he wrote this autobiographical novel about his experiences. Publication was delayed until the early 1920s, when novelist Hugh de Selincourt urged Ellis to publish the piece.
- Olive Schreiner Letters Online: Ellis and Olive Schreiner began to exchange letters in 1884 and continued to do so until her death in 1920. Thanks to the Schreiner Letter project, their voluminous correspondence is now online and fully searchable. The website also contains more information on their correspondence and relationship. Schreiner's letters to Edith Lees Ellis are also accessible on the website.
