Re-evaluating the legacy of the youngest Bront‰ sister, on the 200th anniversary of her birth. Includes an up-to-date biography, contemporary writing about Anne, and a previously-unpublished essay thought to be the last thing she wrote.
the 200th anniversary of the birth of Anne Bront‰, the youngest of
the famed Bront‰ sisters. Only now is she gaining recognition as a great writer
in her own right, and her novels Agnes Grey
and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
deserve to stand alongside those of Charlotte and Emily Bront‰. Crave
the Rose: Anne Bront‰ At 200
takes a fresh look at Anne Bront‰, revealing a
woman whose work was more radical than that of her sisters, and which is
therefore as relevant today as it has ever been. Alongside a biography of
Anne's remarkable, but tragically short, life it contains a comprehensive
selection of first-person encounters with the Bront‰s from 19th
century newspapers and archives, giving a fresh insight into the real character
of Anne and her family. Also contained exclusively within this landmark book is
a newly discovered essay by Anne Bront‰ ? never before seen in print, they are
probably the last words that she ever wrote.
