This volume is a portrait of the Brontë sisters and their family. The English sisters are well known as poets and novelists. Charlotte Brontë (1816-1855), known for her novel Jane Eyre; Emily Brontë (1818-1848), famous for Wuthering Heights; and Anne Brontë (1820-1849), the author of Tenant of Wildfell Hall, were very close and during their childhood developed their imaginations through the collaborative writing of increasingly complex stories. Writing from a contemporary perspective and drawing on previously unknown documents, this book allows readers to see Charlotte Brontë and her sisters as their contemporaries saw them, as passionately outspoken women who dared to claim for their sex an equal right to the passions and desires of men. The author makes many suggestions as to the origins of characters, plots, and locations which all the sisters used in their writing.
