The mysterious new tenant of Wildfell Hall is a strong-minded woman who keeps her own counsel. Helen 'Graham'--exiled with her child to the desolate moorland mansion, adopting an assumed name and earning her living as a painter--has returned to Wildfell Hall in flight from a disastrous marriage.

Agnes Grey by Anne Brontë( )

638 editions published between 1847 and 2021 in 20 languages and held by 10,849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing directly on her own unhappy experiences, Anne Bronte's first-person narrative describes the almost unbelievable pressures endured by nineteenth-century governesses - the isolation, the frustration, and the insensitive and sometimes cruel treatment meted out by employers and their families. Distinguished by its sharp, often ironic observation of middle-class social behaviour, this deeply personal novel also touches on religious belief, moral responsibility, and individual integrity and its survival

"The rarity of the first issue of Poems is attributed to the obscure imprint of Aylott and Jones, who were primarily booksellers and stationers rather than publishers, lacking distribution outlets. Poetry was not generally popular in 1840s, and the Brontë sisters were unknown authors who sponsored the publication and advertising of the volume. -- Smith The Brontë Sisters." -- abebooks website
Selected poems by Anne Brontë( )

17 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although The Brontes have long fascinated readers of fiction and biography, their poetry was all too little known until this pioneering selection by Stevie Davies, the novelist and critic. Charlotte (1816-1855) is certainly a competent poet, and Anne (1820-1849) developed a distinctive voice, while Emily (1818-1848) is one of great women poets in English. All three sisters, as Stevie Davies remarks in her introduction, were Romantic in inspiration, writing poetry of passionate personal feeling and of pure imagination. they share certain themes - liberty, loneliness, love - and harbour the myt

The tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë( Recording )

75 editions published between 1848 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anne Bronte's second novel is a passionate and courageous challenge to the conventions supposedly upheld by Victorian society and reflected in circulating-library fiction. The heroine, Helen Huntingdon, after a short period of initial happiness, leaves her dissolute husband, and must earn her own living to rescue her son from his influence. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is compelling in its imaginative power, the realism and range of its dialogue, and its psychological insight into the characters involved in a marital battle

The tenant of Wildfell hall and Agnes Grey by Anne Brontë( Book )

75 editions published between 1914 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anne Brontë's second and last novel was widely and contentiously reviewed upon its 1848 publication, in part because its subject matter - domestic violence, alcoholism, women's rights, and universal salvation - was so controversial. The tale unfolds through a series of letters between two friends as one man learns more about Helen Huntingdon and the past that brought this young painter and single mother to Wildfell Hall. Powerfully plotted and unconventionally structured, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is now considered to be a classic of Victorian literature

The Brontes at Haworth : the world within( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Brontes at Haworth is the story both of the real world of the Brontes at Haworth Parsonage, their home on the edge of the lonely Yorkshire moors, and of the imaginary worlds they spun for themselves in their novels and poetry. Wherever possible, their story is told using their own words - the letters they wrote to each other, Emily and Anne's secret diaries, and Emily's exchanges with the luminaries of literary England - or those of the people who were closest to them - their brother Branwell, their father the Reverend Patrick Bronte, and their novelist friend Mrs. Gaskell." "The Brontes sketched and painted their worlds too, in delicate ink washes and watercolors of family and friends, animals, and the English moors. These pictures illuminate the text, as do the tiny drawings the Bronte children made to illustrate their imaginary worlds. In addition, there are facsimiles of their letters and diaries, paintings by artists of the day, and pictures of period household items." "The Brontes at Haworth is a unique and privileged view of the real lives of these women, writers, and sisters - their own view - and is certain to be cherished by any admirer of this remarkable literary family."--[book jacket]
Agnes Grey ; The tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The only one-volume hardcover edition of the two uncommonly powerful novels written by the youngest of the famous Brontë sisters. Anne Brontë wrote these two fantastically successful novels just before her tragically early death, both of them in a much more grittily realistic mode than the more romantic ones favored by her sisters. Agnes Grey, the story of a governess working for disdainful and cruel employers, is a wrenching account of the desperate straits faced by Victorian women without money or husband. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall tells a story that was shocking for its time: a woman leaves her alcoholic and abusive husband in order to protect their young son and must live in hiding to prevent the law from taking her child away from her. These novels have become classics not only by dint of the subtle and ironic force of Anne Brontë's prose but because of the passionate indictments of social injustice that animate them."--Publisher's website
