‘There’s a fire and a fury raging in that little woman,’ Thackeray said of Charlotte Brontë. Drawing on letters unavailable to previous biographers, this compelling portrait depicts Charlotte’s inner life with almost novelistic intensity: her isolated upbringing in a remote Yorkshire parsonage, with her father and her equally imaginative siblings; her quiet rebellion and fierce ambition; her unrequited love for a married professor in Brussels; and her eventual literary success, blighted all too soon by devastating personal losses. (Published in the UK as Charlotte Brontë: A Life.) American-cut pages and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
