The tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë( Book )

49 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in English and held by 1,478 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."
Shirley by Charlotte Brontë( Book )

52 editions published between 1979 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
