Abstract:

Juliet Barker's landmark book is the first definitive history of the Brontes. It demolishes the myths, yet provides startling new information that is just as compelling---but true. Based on first-hand research among all the Bronte manuscripts and contemporary historical documents never before used by Bronte biographers, this newly revised edition is both scholarly and compulsively readable. The Brontes is a revolutionary picture of the world's favorite literary family.
