Abstract: A consistent example of an uncountable Lindelöf (and hence normal) space with no Lindelöf subspace of size is constructed. It remains unsolved whether extra set-theoretic assumptions are necessary for the existence of such a space. However, our space has size and is a -space, i.e., 's are open, and for such spaces extra set-theoretic assumptions turn out to be necessary.
