The Brontes
By

Rating
The story of the tragic Bront family is familiar to everyone: we all know about the half-mad, repressive father, the drunken, drug-addled wastrel of a brother, wildly romantic Emily, unrequited Anne, and "poor Charlotte." Or do we? These stereotypes of the popular imagination are precisely that - imaginary - created by amateur biographers such as Mrs. Gaskell who were primarily novelists and were attracted by the tale of an apparently doomed family of genius.Juliet Barker''s landmark book is the first definitive history of the Bront s. It demolishes the myths, yet provides startling new information that is just as compelling - but true. Based on first-hand research among all the Bront manuscripts, including contemporary historical documents never before used by Bront biographers, this book is both scholarly and compulsively readable. The Bront s is a revolutionary picture of the world''s favorite literary family.

Barker's updated and enthralling biography of the Brontes carries us deeper into the everyday realities of their strange world. The stuff of lurid legend.--Maureen Corrigan, NPR's "Fresh Air"
