Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Shaped by a novelist's imagination, Elizabeth Gaskell's admiring portrait of her friend (and author of JANE EYRE) Charlotte Bronte, as well as her descriptions of the people and events that caused Bronte pain or suffering reads much like the life of fictional characters of their early 19th-century time--extreme self-denial, coping with sickness and death and surviving through the strength of religious faith and moral integrity.

Review:
"A biography that has the immediacy of a work written by a mourning friend and that brings alive the bleak parsonage, its brilliant inhabitants, and the Victorian literary world into which they ventured."

Good Book Guide, August 1996

Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed. 198 x 129 mm. Brand New Book. Elizabeth Gaskell s biography of her close friend Charlotte Bronte was published in 1857 to immediate popular acclaim, and remains the most significant study of the enigmatic author who gave Jane Eyre the subtitle An Autobiography. It recounts Charlotte Bronte s life from her isolated childhood, through her years as a writer who had foreseen the single life for herself, to her marriage at thirty-eight and death less than a year later. The resulting work - the first full-length biography of a woman novelist by a woman novelist - explored the nature of Charlotte s genius and almost single-handedly created the Bronte myth.
