Villette by Charlotte Brontë( Book )

992 editions published between 1800 and 2018 in 18 languages and held by 8,736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With neither friends nor family, Lucy Snowe sets sail from England to find employment in a girls' boarding school in the small town of Villette. There she struggles to retain her self-possession in the face of unruly pupils, an initially suspicious headmaster, and her own complex feelings, first for the school's English doctor and then for the dictatorial professor, Paul Emmanuel. Charlotte Brontë's last and most autobiographical novel is a powerfully moving study of isolation and the pain of unrequited love, narrated by a heroine determined to preserve an independent spirit in the face of adverse circumstances
Shirley by Charlotte Brontë( Book )

959 editions published between 1 and 2017 in 22 languages and held by 7,254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set during the Napoleonic wars at a time of national economic struggles, Shirley is an unsentimental yet passionate depiction of conflict among classes, sexes, and generations. Struggling manufacturer Robert Moore considers marriage to the wealthy and independent Shirley Keeldar, yet his heart lies with his cousin Caroline. Shirley, meanwhile, is in love with Robert's brother, an impoverished tutor. As industrial unrest builds to a potentially fatal pitch, can the four be reconciled?

The notes to the text pay particular attention to literary and Biblical allusions and to words and phrases not readily available in desk dictionaries. They also include translation of French passages. The backgrounds section of this Norton Critical Edition offers generous samplings of Charlotte Bronte's early writings, letters, and poems. It also included pertinent passages from Mrs. Gaskell's biography as well as a sampling from the children magazine The Children's Friend, demonstrating a particular kind of oppression Jane Eyre suffered
Poems by Charlotte Brontë( Book )

61 editions published between 1846 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The rarity of the first issue of Poems is attributed to the obscure imprint of Aylott and Jones, who were primarily booksellers and stationers rather than publishers, lacking distribution outlets. Poetry was not generally popular in 1840s, and the Brontë sisters were unknown authors who sponsored the publication and advertising of the volume. -- Smith The Brontë Sisters." -- abebooks website

This volume covers the period from 1852 until Charlotte Brontë's tragic early death in March 1855. We read of her long struggle to complete 'Villette', and her indignation when Harriet Martineau finds in it evidence that her mind is 'full of the subject of one passion - love'

Selected letters of Charlotte Brontë by Charlotte Brontë( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These letters give an insight into the life of a writer whose novels continue to be bestsellers. They reveal much about Charlotte Bronte's personal life, her family relationships, and the society in which she lived. Many of her early letters are written with vigour, vivacity, and an engaging aptitude for self-mockery. In contrast, her letters to her 'master', the Belgian schoolteacher Constantin Heger, reveal her intense, obsessive longing for some response from him. Other letters are deeply moving, when Charlotte endures the agony of her brother's and sisters' untimely deaths." "We learn also of the progress of her writing, including the astonishing success of Jane Eyre, and of her contacts with her publishers, including the young George Smith; and we recognize in her letters the life-experiences which are transmuted into the art of her novels. Contemporary society is described in her letters from London, when she writes of her encounters with famous writers and with critics of her novels. We hear too of her visits to an galleries, operas, and the Great Exhibition of 1851 at the Crystal Palace." "Dramatic letters written in December 1852 convey the 'turbulence of feeling' in the Haworth curate Arthur Nicholls' proposal of marriage to her and in Mr Bronte's violent reaction to it; and we subsequently hear of her secret correspondence with her suitor, her father's eventual consent, and her tragically brief but happy marriage, cut short by her death in March 1855"--Jacket
Charlotte Brontë, a passionate life by Lyndall Gordon( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charlotte Bronte: A Passionate Life looks beyond the insistent image of the modest Victorian lady, the slave to duty in the shadow of tombstones. Instead we see a strong, fiery woman who shaped her own life and transformed it into art. This biography looks at the shared gifts and class ambitions of the Bronte family - at the active feminist, Mary Taylor; at the demanding mentor, Constantin Heger; and at the rising publisher, George Smith - as Charlotte strove to possess them in life and fiction. Her highly autobiographical novels refused current bars to women's writing to release a public voice which could speak intimately to her readers."--Jacket

The interaction of experience on intellectual development has been closely followed from childhood to established fame

A literature of their own : British women novelists from Brontë to Lessing by Elaine Showalter( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A LITERATURE OF THEIR OWN quickly set the stage for the creative explosion of feminist literary studies that transformed the field in the 1980s. Launching a major new area for literary investigation, the book uncovered the long but neglected tradition of women writers and the development of their fiction from the 1800s onwards. It includes assessments of famous writers such as the Brontës, George Eliot, Virginia Woolf, Margaret Drabble and Doris Lessing, but also presents critical appraisals of Mary Braddon, Rhoda Broughton and Sarah Grand --- to name but a few of those prolific and successful Victorian novelists - --once household names, now largely forgotten
