The three Brontës by May Sinclair( Book )

54 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 983 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of the Brontë sisters, published in 1912, showcases Sinclair's sometimes acerbic critical acumen.

Life and death of Harriett Frean by May Sinclair( Book )

53 editions published between 1922 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Harriett is the Victorian embodiment of all the virtues then viewed as essential to the womanly ideal: a woman reared to love, honour and obey. Idolising her parents, she learns from childhood to equate love with self-sacrifice, so that when she falls in love with the fiance of her closest friend, renunciation of this unworthy passion initially brings her a peculiar sort of happiness. But the passing of time reveals a different truth. Ironic, brief and intensely realised, The Life and Death of Harriett Frean (1922) is a modernest novel, a brilliant study of female virtue seen as vice, and stands with the work of Virgina Woolf and Dorothy Richardson as one of the great innovative novels of the century
