The Brontes : Wild Genius on the Moors- The Story of Three Sisters
In a revised and updated edition, the real story of the Bronte sisters, by distinguished scholar and historian Juliet Barker The story of the tragic Bronte family is familiar to everyone: we all know about the half-mad, repressive father, the drunken, drug-addicted wastrel of a brother, wildly romantic Emily, unrequited Anne, and ""poor Charlotte."" Or do we? These stereotypes of the popular imagination are precisely that imaginary-created by amateur biographers like Elizabeth Gaskell who were primarily novelists and were attracted by the tale of an apparently doomed family of genius. 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 Based on firsthand research among all the Bronte manuscripts and among contemporary historical documents never before used by Bronte biographers, this book is both scholarly and compulsively readable. The Brontes is a revolutionary picture of the world's favorite literary family.
