The Illustrated Letters of the Brontes

Autor Juliet Gardiner
en Limba Engleză Hardback – 15 apr 2021
The Illustrated Letters of the Bront s is the story both of the real world of the Bront s at Haworth Parsonage, their home on the edge of the lonely Yorkshire moors, and of the imaginary worlds they spun for themselves in their novels and poetry. Wherever possible, their story is told using their own words--the letters they wrote to each other, Emily and Anne's secret diaries, and Emily's exchanges with luminaries of literary England--or the words of those closest to them, such as their brother Branwell, their father Patrick Bront , and their novelist friend Mrs Gaskell. The Bront s sketched and painted their words too, in delicate ink washes and watercolors of family and friends, animals, and the English moors. These pictures illuminate the text as do the tiny drawings the Bront children made to illustrate their imaginary worlds. In addition, there are facsimiles of their letters and diaries, paintings by artists of the day, and pictures of household life. It is a unique and privileged view of the real lives of three women, writers, and sisters.
