In Self-Interrogation, she wrote: "The evening passes fast away, / Tis almost time to rest; / What thoughts has left the vanished day, / What feelings, in thy breast? / The vanished day? It leaves a sense / Of labour hardly done; / Of little, gained with vast expense, / A sense of grief alone!"
The tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë ( Recording )
40 editions published between 1848 and 2012 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Anne Bronte's second novel is a passionate and courageous challenge to the conventions supposedly upheld by Victorian society and reflected in circulating-library fiction. The heroine, Helen Huntingdon, after a short period of initial happiness, leaves her dissolute husband, and must earn her own living to rescue her son from his influence. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is compelling in its imaginative power, the realism and range of its dialogue, and its psychological insight into the characters involved in a marital battle

The Brontes at Haworth : the world within ( Book )
4 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Brontes at Haworth is the story both of the real world of the Brontes at Haworth Parsonage, their home on the edge of the lonely Yorkshire moors, and of the imaginary worlds they spun for themselves in their novels and poetry. Wherever possible, their story is told using their own words - the letters they wrote to each other, Emily and Anne's secret diaries, and Emily's exchanges with the luminaries of literary England - or those of the people who were closest to them - their brother Branwell, their father the Reverend Patrick Bronte, and their novelist friend Mrs. Gaskell." "The Brontes sketched and painted their worlds too, in delicate ink washes and watercolors of family and friends, animals, and the English moors. These pictures illuminate the text, as do the tiny drawings the Bronte children made to illustrate their imaginary worlds. In addition, there are facsimiles of their letters and diaries, paintings by artists of the day, and pictures of period household items." "The Brontes at Haworth is a unique and privileged view of the real lives of these women, writers, and sisters - their own view - and is certain to be cherished by any admirer of this remarkable literary family."--[book jacket]

Although The Brontes have long fascinated readers of fiction and biography, their poetry was all too little known until this pioneering selection by Stevie Davies, the novelist and critic. Charlotte (1816-1855) is certainly a competent poet, and Anne (1820-1849) developed a distinctive voice, while Emily (1818-1848) is one of great women poets in English. All three sisters, as Stevie Davies remarks in her introduction, were Romantic in inspiration, writing poetry of passionate personal feeling and of pure imagination. they share certain themes - liberty, loneliness, love - and harbour the myt

Agnes Grey ; The tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë ( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The only one-volume hardcover edition of the two uncommonly powerful novels written by the youngest of the famous Brontë sisters. Anne Brontë wrote these two fantastically successful novels just before her tragically early death, both of them in a much more grittily realistic mode than the more romantic ones favored by her sisters. Agnes Grey, the story of a governess working for disdainful and cruel employers, is a wrenching account of the desperate straits faced by Victorian women without money or husband. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall tells a story that was shocking for its time: a woman leaves her alcoholic and abusive husband in order to protect their young son and must live in hiding to prevent the law from taking her child away from her. These novels have become classics not only by dint of the subtle and ironic force of Anne Brontë's prose but because of the passionate indictments of social injustice that animate them."--Publisher's website
