The tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë( Book )

54 editions published between 1848 and 2017 in English and held by 1,474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Anne, like her sisters Emily and Charlotte, published under a male pseudonym, Acton Bell, yet still this novel was scorned by many for its exposure of the abusive male chauvinism concealed, like all things sexual, during the Victorian Era. Just as she had to use a male pseudonym in order to be free to publish, as women authors were not yet deemed acceptable or bankable, Helen Graham, the novel's protagonist and a battered wife, assumes an alias in order to gain freedom from her suffering and take up residence in Wildfell Hall, "the wildest and the loftiest eminence in our neighborhood," according to the tale's narrator. Like her sisters, Anne employs the atmosphere of the bleak Yorkshire moors and the presence of an old mansion to set the stage for a tragedy that reveals the secret violence in a society considered well-mannered, echoing the rough, cold, rugged gloom of the fictional Wildfell Hall and her family's own remote parsonage; narrating a story that Bronte scholar Margeret Lane remarked, "is so close to one of the tragedies in the sisters' own lives, that no perceptive reader can be indifferent to it."

Set during the Napoleonic wars at a time of national economic struggles, Shirley is an unsentimental yet passionate depiction of conflict among classes, sexes, and generations. Struggling manufacturer Robert Moore considers marriage to the wealthy and independent Shirley Keeldar, yet his heart lies with his cousin Caroline. Shirley, meanwhile, is in love with Robert's brother, an impoverished tutor. As industrial unrest builds to a potentially fatal pitch, can the four be reconciled? - Publisher

Villette : Oxford World's Classics by Herbert Rosengarten( Book )

I am only just returned to a sense of the real world about me, for I have been reading Villette, a still more wonderful book than Jane Eyre. Thus was George Eliot's response to Charlotte Bronte's dramatic Gothic exploration of a woman's rebellion against her constricting social environment. Set in a Belgian girls' school, it tells of Lucy Snowe's attraction to fiery, autocratic master Paul Emmanuel and headmistress, Madame Beck's jealous interference in their romance. The novel's blend of sombre vision and ironic and exuberant comedy make it especially appealing to the modern reader
Shirley by Charlotte Brontë( Recording )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Following the tremendous success of Jane Eyre Charlotte BrontE returned to pen a novel every bit as romantic and compelling as her first, but with deeper, heartier themes as she captured the social and political currents of the newly industrialised United Kingdom of 1812. Set in a chaotic time in England, during the height of the Napoleonic Wars, Caroline Helstone's world is turned upside down when she meets the vivacious Shirley Keeldar. Shirley becomes a beacon of light for Caroline as the two become close friends. However, Caroline is soon shocked to discover that Shirley has won the affections of Robert Moore, the impoverished mill owner whom she loves. Fully representative of Yorkshire life at the time, BrontE's second novel is completely gripping, unrelenting and utterly wrenching in its portrayal of steadfast love."
