Overview

Very few families produce one outstanding writer. The Bront family produced three. The works of Charlotte, Emily and Anne remain immensely popular, and are increasingly being studied in relation to the surroundings and wider context that formed them.

A section on Bront criticism traces their reception to the present day. The works of the sisters are explored in the context of social, political and cultural developments in early-nineteenth-century Britain, with attention given to religion, education, art, print culture, agriculture, law and medicine. Crammed with information, The Bront s in Context shows how the Bront s' fiction interacts with the spirit of the time, suggesting reasons for its enduring fascination.
