From the lonely parsonage at Haworth in the West Riding of Yorkshire, the Bronte sisters led a solitary life, blighted by death and the reckless behaviour of their only brother Branwell. All the girls longed for marriage and children yet only Charlotte eventually married her father's curate only to die in pregnancy the following year.
Death, loneliness and unfulfilled longings are the themes of these gripping poems.
All three sisters' poems are represented in this volume and if it leads on to the reading of the complete works, then it will have served one of its purposes.

About the Author

The Bronte sisters, Charlotte, (1816 - 1855), Emily (1818 - 1848) and Anne (1820 - 1849) are best known for their novels, 'Jane Eyre', 'Wuthering Heights' and 'The Tenant of Wildfell Hall'. Yet as this selection of their verse reveals, they were all poets of remarkable talent.
