Now, in one encyclopedic resource, readers can explore the life and work of each writer as an individual and as part of an unusually creative family. The Bronts︠ A to Z is an indispensable, easy-to-use reference to the world of the Bront ︠family: sisters Charlotte, Emily, and Anne; their brother, Branwell; and their father, Patrick. Drawing on a wide range of sources, including correspondence, reviews, biographical studies, and the texts themselves, this book covers the Bronts︠' literary influences and achievements, personal history, and critical reception."@en ;
