Drawing directly on her own experiences, Anne Brontë describes the isolation and dark ambiguity of the governess's life as lived by her fictional heroine Agnes Grey.

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 )

47 editions published between 1848 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 595 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 )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 291 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]

Agnes Grey ; The tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 184 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

Although the Brontës 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 the great women poets in English. Read together with their novels, the poems movingly elucidate the ideas around which the narratives revolve. And they surprise us out of our conventional notions of the sisters' personalities: Emily's rebelliousness, for example, is co
Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell by Charlotte Brontë( Book )

12 editions published between 1846 and 2014 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though the Brontë sisters are best known for their string of classic novels, Charlotte, Emily, and Anne were also talented poets. In 1846, the sisters published their first work, a joint collection of poetry released under the pseudonyms Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. Though the volume did not make much of a splash upon its initial release - in fact, only two copies were sold in the months following publication - it stands as an important work by the sisters, demonstrating the range of their abilities. Emily Brontë's poems in particular have attracted quite a bit of attention over the years; shortly after publication, The Athenaeum noted that she had "an evident power of wing that may reach heights not here attempted," and Emily Dickinson enjoyed her poems so much that she chose "No Coward Soul" to be read at her funeral
