Since 1857, hardly a year has gone by without some sort of Brontë 'biography' appearing. These range from pious accounts in Victorian conduct books to Freudian pyschobiographies, from plays, films and ballets to tourist brochures and images on tea-towels, from sensation-seeking penny-a-liners to meticulous works of sober scholarship. Each generation has rewritten the Brontës to reflect changing attitudes - towards the role of the woman writer, towards sexuality, towards the very concept of personality. The Brontë Myth gives vigorous new life to our understanding of the novelists and their culture and Lucasta Miller reveals as much about the impossible art of biography as she does about the Brontës themselves.

The extraordinary creativity of the Bront--euml--; sisters, who between them wrote some of the most enduring fiction in the English language, continues to fascinate and intrigue modern readers. Their novels, which so shocked their contemporaries, address the burning issues of the day: class, gender, race, religion, and mental disorders. As well as examining these connections, Patricia Ingham also shows how film and other media have reinterpreted the novels for the twenty-first century. - ;The extraordinary creativity of the Bront--euml--; sisters, who between them wrote some of the most enduring fiction in the English language, continues to fascinate and intrigue modern readers. The tragedy of their early deaths adds poignancy to their novels, and in the popular imagination they have become mythic figures. And yet, as Patricia Ingham shows, they were fully engaged with the world around them, and their writing, from the juvenilia to Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights , reflects the preoccupations of the age in which they lived. Their novels, which so shocked their contemporaries, address the burning issues of the day: class, gender, race, religion, and mental disorders. As well as examining these connections, Patricia Ingham also shows how film and other media have reinterpreted the novels for the twenty-first century. The book includes a chronology of the Bront--euml--;s, suggestions for further reading, websites, illustrations, and a comprehensive index. - ;A dazzling, unobtrusive, true work of criticism - what a rarity that is - Craig Raine

This volume represents more than twenty-five years of writing about female icons and biography. Rollyson provides the bits and pieces that resulted not only in his biography of Marilyn Monroe but also in much of the work he has subsequently done on Lillian Hellman, Martha Gellhorn, Rebecca West, Susan Sontag, and on the nature of biography itself.This book includes a selection of Rollyson's New York Sun book reviews dealing with female icons such as Mary Stuart, Mary Wollstonecraft, The Brontës, Marie Curie, Harriet Tubman, Zelda Fitzgerald, and Sylvia Plath. Rollyson's writing about icons has provoked him to question the process by which selves are defined. Discovering the shaping mechanisms of the self is simultaneously a way of understanding how biographies are built.In the end, this book should be of interest not merely to devotees of Monroe, Sontag, and other icons but also to anyone curious about the nature of biography and the biographer.

This book sets out to interpret the fiction of the Bronte sisters in the light of a Marxist analysis of the historical conditions in which it was produced. Its aim is not merely to relate literary facts to historical facts, but, by close critical examination of the novels, to find in them a significant structure of ideas and values which relates to the Brontes ambiguous situation within the class-system of their society.

Emily Brontë veröffentlichte ihren einzigen Roman 1847, der bis heute nichts von seiner schauerromantischen Faszination eingebüßt hat. Erzählt wird die Geschichte der über den Tod hinausreichenden, jedes Maß sprengenden Liebe zwischen der jungen Landbesitzerstochter Catherine und dem dämonischen Findelkind Heathcliff, einem der ersten negativen Helden der Literaturgeschichte. Damit folgt der Roman zwar einerseits dem klassischen Ideal der romantischen Liebe, zeigt zugleich aber auch die psychologische und soziale Kehrseite einer entgrenzten Leidenschaft, die unaufhaltsam in Wahnsinn und Tod führt. Die Orthografie dieser Ausgabe wurde der neuen deutschen Rechtschreibung angepasst und die Interpunktion behutsam modernisiert.

The works of Anne, Emily, and Charlotte Bronte are saturated with spatial metaphors, their composition inevitably reflecting Victorian concepts of gender and the ideology of 'separate spheres'. Questioning the binary interpretation of incarceration and flight, this study focuses on how, through a transgression of narrated, textual, and metaphorical spaces, the Brontes' feminine protagonists show the ideological divide between male and female spaces to be more permeable than previously acknowledged. Applying the spatial concepts of Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, and Felix Guattari, this study examines how the normative dichotomy of the 'separate spheres' in the selected novels is destabilized through a transgression of literary spaces."
