Part of the Authors in Context series within Oxford World's Classics, The Brontës is a lively, accessible, and critically topical exploration of the novels of the three Brontë sisters in relation to the age in which they lived, and in modern contexts such as film and television.
The book traces the origins of novels such as Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights in the juvenile writings of the Brontës, and in relation to social class, gender, nationality, the mind, religion, and politics and in so doing provides an historical overview and a critically up-to-date one-volume guide for students at all levels.
The final chapter examines the twentieth-century's remaking of the novels and their authors in film and television adaptations.
Includes a chronology of the family, further reading, websites, illustrations, and a comprehensive index.
The extraordinary creativity of the Brontë sisters, who between them wrote some of the most enduring fiction in the English language, continues to fascinate and intrigue modern readers. The tragedy of their early deaths adds poignancy to their novels, and in the popular imagination they have become mythic figures. And yet, as Patricia Ingham shows, they were fully engaged with the world around them, and their writing, from the juvenilia to Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights , reflects the preoccupations of the age in which they lived. Their novels, which so shocked their contemporaries, address the burning issues of the day: class, gender, race, religion, and mental disorders. As well as examining these connections, Patricia Ingham also shows how film and other media have reinterpreted the novels for the twenty-first century.
The book includes a chronology of the Brontës, suggestions for further reading, websites, illustrations, and a comprehensive index.
