Course Description

Mysterious Emily, rebellious Charlotte, gentle Anne: the life of the Brontë sisters in isolated Haworth is almost as famous as their literary works. This course will take their 200th year anniversaries as an occasion to look at the Brontë myth and reread their novels, which scandalised Victorian reviewers. It will also explore the juvenilia of Charlotte and Branwell Brontë, and examine how their first biographer, Elizabeth Gaskell, shaped their posthumous reputation for generations to come in her Life of Charlotte Brontë.
