  1. says:

    A slim little gem of a book Carefully reasoned and thoughtfully written, and especially impressive since it was written in 1989 well before some of the recent and important Bronte scholarly work by women Barker, Miller, Smith Langland spends as much time on Anne s poems her pillars of witness as she does on the two novels, and refreshingly refuses to reduce either Agnes Grey to autobiography or Wildfell Hall to the portrait of Branwell Charlotte claimed it was indeed, as Charlotte s own publisher pointed out, Huntingdon s resemblance to Mr Rochester is striking Her judicious analysis throws light on Anne s life and work than some much thicker volumes The Brontes, The Bronte Myth She also refreshingly refrains from the Charlotte bashing some revisionist critics have indulged in, while justly criticizing Charlotte s rewriting and suppression of Anne s work, and showing clearly how Charlotte underestimated her sister s talent and misunderstood her personality This book s only real fault is that it is too short, and, having been printed in China, there are occasional proofreading errors or poor pagination In a good world, the author would be given the opportunity to revise, enlarge and update her work, but it is a pleasure to read regardless.

    I picked up this monograph in the clearance section of a bookstore Sad really because it s an excellent study.Anne Bronte wrote beautiful poetry.


  3. says:

    This biography was the best of the ones I had it was almost fiction in the way it read It was analytical, but it did start with information on Anne s life, so I did have some background


  4. says:

    Interesting book, but makes some extremely bold claims that are easily disprovable.
