Anne Bronte, a new book in the Twayne English Authors Series, challenges the assumption that such labels point to artistic or personal weaknesses on Bronte's part. Rather, Maria Frawley, the author of previous studies of Victorian women writers, relates them to Bronte's life experiences and to her ongoing interest in self-understanding, self-representation, and social identity. Within Bronte's writings, Frawley examines a distinction between the characters' private and public selves and analyzes Bronte's understanding of the social construction of identities. Unique in Bronte family studies, this book acknowledges Anne's relationship to her more famous sisters but focuses on her individual artistic and intellectual achievements.
