The Oxford companion to the Brontë̈s by Christine Alexander( Book )

39 editions published between 2003 and 2018 in English and held by 1,628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: The Oxford Companion to the Brontes aims to provide both comprehensive and detailed information about the lives, works, and reputations of the Brontes--the three sisters Charlotte, Emily, and Anne, together with their father and their brother Branwell--all of whom were published writers. This is a unique and authoritative reference book for the research student and the general reader. The A-Z format, extensive cross-referencing, chronologies, illustrations, and maps, both facilitate quick reference and encourage further exploration. Entries are also designed to explore scholarly trends and to reflect contemporary directions in literary study. They offer insight into publishing history, biographical studies, collectors and museums, book illustration, and theoretical and critical approaches to the Brontes' writings. This Companion is not only invaluable for quick searches, but a delight to browse, and an inspiration to further reading
Tales of Glass Town, Angria, and Gondal : selected writings by Charlotte Brontë( )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Book Description: In their collaborative early writings, the Brontes created and peopled the most extraordinary fantasy worlds, whose geography and history they elaborated in numerous stories, poems, and plays. Together they invented characters based on heroes and writers such as Wellington, Napoleon, Scott, and Byron, whose feuds, alliances, and love affairs weave an intricate web of social and political intrigue in imaginary colonial lands in Africa and the Pacific Ocean. The writings of Glass Town, Angria, and Gondal are youthful experiments in imitation and parody, wild romance and realistic recording--a playful literary world that they would draw upon for their early and later work. In this generous selection, the early writings of the Bronte's are presented together for the first time. Christine Alexander's Introduction explores the rich imaginative lives of the Brontes, and the tension between their maturing authorship and creative freedom. The edition includes Charlotte Bronte's Roe Head Journal, and Emily and Anne's Diary Papers. The edition also has a key to characters and place, detailed notes, and a map of Glass Town and Angria

"Jane Austen's brilliantly sophisticated teenage writings constitute her beginnings as a writer. We see in the works in this volume the sheer fun of her early sketches and their ridicule of human foibles, her parody of the absurdities of romance and sentimental fiction, her decision-making over choice of word and incident, her changing attitude towards character and style, and especially her earlu fascination with wordplay and hidden meanings that reveal her sprightly imagination."--Introduction
Charlotte Bronte's High life in Verdopolis : a story from the Glass Town Saga by Charlotte Brontë( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

High Life in Verdopolis was written by Charlotte Bronte at the age of seventeen, when she was immersed in Gothic literature and fascinated by Byron and his affairs. It is a delightful romance, woven around the principal characters in her imaginary African kingdoms of Glass Town and Angria. The hero Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Zamorna and young king of Angria, is presented as an eastern potentate, surrounded by his seraglio and laden with all the trappings of Byron's Childe Harold. This new edition, the first separate publication of the story, includes Charlotte Bronte's own illustrations, all exquisitely drawn in watercolour, pencil and ink. The Bronte scholar Christine Alexander provides an informative introduction, relating the story to its Angrian context and drawing attention to the Bronte's preoccupations of the time

Lady Susan is Jane Austen's depiction of the attraction of evil. Written when the author was nineteen, this early letter novel is a brilliantly cynical study of high society.
