Author Biography

Emily Bronte was born on 30 July 1818. Her father was curate of Haworth, Yorkshire, and her mother died when she was five years old, leaving five daughters and one son. In 1824 Charlotte, Maria, Elizabeth and Emily were sent to Cowan Bridge, a school for clergymen's daughters, where Maria and Elizabeth both caught tuberculosis and died. The children were taught at home from this point on and together they created vivid fantasy worlds which they explored by writing stories. Emily worked briefly as a teacher in 1938 but soon returned home. In 1846, Emily's poems were published alongside those of her sisters, Charlotte and Anne, in Poems by Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell. The following year Wuthering Heights was published. Emily Bronte died of consumption on 19 December 1848.

Kirkus UK Review

Once past the elaborate 19th-century framing technique of multiple narrators, the reader is swept away by one of the most thrilling love stories ever told. Every romantic novel with a saturnine hero has been influenced by Heathcliff, but the original was a nasty piece of work, who tried to hang his wife's pet dog. That female readers are still bewitched, is a tribute to Bronte's writing or some unliberated hormones. (Kirkus UK)
