Description

These are the three great works of the Bront "e sisters. Jane Eyre had immediate success when it was published in 1847. The story of Jane Eyre and her ill-starred, unlikely, but tenacious love for Mr Rochester has remained a much-loved classic. Wuthering Heights , Emily Bront "e's only novel, was badly received when it was published soon after Jane Eyre ; the public found it rough and strange. Dominated by the passionate Heathcliff and his consuming relationship with Catherine, it has become one of the most popular of all English novels. Anne Bront "e's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall , was a dramatic challenge to Victorian conventions. It portrays the independent Helen Huntingdon, who chooses to leave her dissolute husband and rescue their son from his influence, determining to make her own way in the world. This selection of the Bront "e's work demonstrates the remarkable range of their powers. No one had achieved such a combination of realism and romance before, and these novels are among the greatest of the nineteenth century. This book is intended for general readers. Possibly students, but no editorial apparatus.show more
