about this item

A Companion to the Brontds brings the latest literary research and theory to bear on the life, work, and legacy of the Brontd family. With in-depth articles written by well-known and emerging scholars from around the world, this book explores the interaction between the family members and the wider world, as well as the ethical, religious, economic, political, legal, philosophical, and aesthetic influences on their work.

The volume incorporates recent work in Marxist, feminist, postcolonial, and race and gender studies, all of which offer fresh insights into this prolific family. Contributors address a diverse range of topics, such as the Gothic tradition, film and dramatic adaptation, psychoanalytic approaches to their work, and key issues of the day-from divorce and female disinheritance, to worker reform. Filled with critical new scholarship that re-evaluates the life and work of Emily, Charlotte, and Anne, as well as Branwell and Patrick Bront, this is an essential resource for students and scholars of nineteenth-century literature.

Diane Long Hoeveler is Emerita Professor of English at Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
