The Bronte Myth

In an excellent mix of biography, literary feedback, and historical past, The Bronté delusion indicates how Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Bronté turned cultural icons whose ever-changing reputations mirrored the obsessions of varied eras.

When literary London discovered that Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights have been written by way of younger rural spinsters, the Brontés immediately grew to become as well-known as their shockingly passionate books. quickly after their deaths, their first biographer spun the sisters right into a picturesque fantasy of relatives tragedies and Yorkshire moors. Ever due to the fact that, those enigmatic figures have tempted generations of readers–Victorian, Freudian, feminist–to reinterpret them, casting them as every thing from household saints to sex-starved hysterics. In her bewitching “metabiography,” Lucasta Miller follows the twists and turns of the phenomenon of Bront-mania and rescues those 3 fiercely unique geniuses from the distortions of legend.

You know the lack-luster story of my frustrated childhood and you know those persons who are to blame for my being able to note nothing or little that is joyous in those days of growth. You know that for the greater part of the day I was entrusted to a serving-girl, immoral and of few scruples, and that the woman whose first and most immediate care I should have been loved me only when it came to bringing me out in a new little dress before a few marveling acquaintances.

There we found a station employee who informed us that the Count had accompanied Tatiana Lvovna to the station yesterday, and had then departed with his luggage for Koslovka.
