Publisher description: The Oxford Companion to the Brontes aims to provide both comprehensive and detailed information about the lives, works, and reputations of the Brontes--the three sisters Charlotte, Emily, and Anne, together with their father and their brother Branwell--all of whom were published writers. This is a unique and authoritative reference book for the research student and the general reader. The A-Z format, extensive cross-referencing, chronologies, illustrations, and maps, both facilitate quick reference and encourage further exploration. Entries are also designed to explore scholarly trends and to reflect contemporary directions in literary study. They offer insight into publishing history, biographical studies, collectors and museums, book illustration, and theoretical and critical approaches to the Brontes' writings. This Companion is not only invaluable for quick searches, but a delight to browse, and an inspiration to further reading

William Crimsworth escapes a dreary clerkship in industrial Yorkshire by taking a job as a teacher in Belgium.

Selected letters of Charlotte Brontë by Charlotte Brontë( Book )
15 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 287 libraries worldwide
"These letters give an insight into the life of a writer whose novels continue to be bestsellers. They reveal much about Charlotte Bronte's personal life, her family relationships, and the society in which she lived. Many of her early letters are written with vigour, vivacity, and an engaging aptitude for self-mockery. In contrast, her letters to her 'master', the Belgian schoolteacher Constantin Heger, reveal her intense, obsessive longing for some response from him. Other letters are deeply moving, when Charlotte endures the agony of her brother's and sisters' untimely deaths." "We learn also of the progress of her writing, including the astonishing success of Jane Eyre, and of her contacts with her publishers, including the young George Smith; and we recognize in her letters the life-experiences which are transmuted into the art of her novels. Contemporary society is described in her letters from London, when she writes of her encounters with famous writers and with critics of her novels. We hear too of her visits to an galleries, operas, and the Great Exhibition of 1851 at the Crystal Palace." "Dramatic letters written in December 1852 convey the 'turbulence of feeling' in the Haworth curate Arthur Nicholls' proposal of marriage to her and in Mr Bronte's violent reaction to it; and we subsequently hear of her secret correspondence with her suitor, her father's eventual consent, and her tragically brief but happy marriage, cut short by her death in March 1855"--Jacket
The Letters of Charlotte Brontë : with a selection of letters by family and friends. Vol. 3, 1852-1855 by Charlotte Brontë( Book )
17 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in English and held by 54 libraries worldwide
This volume covers the period from 1852 until Charlotte Brontë's tragic early death in March 1855. We read of her long struggle to complete 'Villette', and her indignation when Harriet Martineau finds in it evidence that her mind is 'full of the subject of one passion - love'
The tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë( Book )
10 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in English and held by 52 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
