Description

Charlotte, Emily, Anne and Branwell, the four prodigiously gifted Bronte children, grew up in a world circumscribed by their father's dank, claustrophobic parsonage at Haworth in Yorkshire. Here their lively imaginations fed upon each other's childhood fantasies. They invented their own fictional world of romance and adventure which led to the great novels of the three girls' maturity. Branwell, the only son, of whom so much was expected, had his talent destroyed by wildness and alcohol, while only Charlotte among the three sisters lived barely long enough to enjoy her writing career. The story of the Bronte family is not, however, one of unrelieved tragedy. They knew love and friendship, they found success in their writings, and above all they exalted in the glories of the wild Yorkshire countryside, the moors of "Wuthering Heights." Using the freedom of a novelist and his own richly imaginative insights, Glyn Hughes brings the creative and dramatic world of the Bronte family triumphantly to life.show more
