Description
The editor of the three-volume The Letters of Charlotte Brontė and co-author of The Oxford Companion to the Brontės offers this selection of Charlotte's most telling letters, revealing much about her personal life, her family relationships, and the society in which she lived. Here are early letters written with liveliness and an engaging aptitude for self-mockery, and the deeply moving letters after the untimely deaths of her brother and sisters. We learn also of the progress of her writing, including the astonishing success of Jane Eyre, and she describes contemporary society brilliantly in her letters from London, where she encountered famous writers and critics of her novels. We hear too of her visits to art galleries, operas, and the Great Exhibition of 1851 at the Crystal Palace. Dramatic letters written in December 1852 convey the "turbulence of feeling" in the Haworth curate Arthur Nicholls's proposal of marriage to her, as well as Mr. Brontė's violent reaction to it; we also read of her secret correspondence with her suitor, her father's eventual consent, and her tragically brief happy marriage, cut short by her death in March 1855.
