High-spirited and hugely enjoyable, this collection of juvenilia showcases Bronte's remarkable creative powers, suffused with a youthful zeal and exuberance.
When Charlotte's brother Branwell was given a set of 12 toy soldiers, an entire new imaginary world opened before them. The Twelves, or Young Men, became a constant source of inspiration for the Bronte children, spawning tales of swashbuckling adventure, darkest intrigue, doomed romance, and malevolent spirits. The four volumes of tales collected here make delightful reading, while offering a unique insight into Bronte family life and Charlotte's development as a writer.
