This stimulating study considers how Charlotte Brontë's writings engage with a whole range of issues in their time. Through a series of new readings of ostensibly well-known texts, Heather Glen reveals a Charlotte Brontë more alert to her historical moment and far more aesthetically sophisticated than she has usually been taken to be.

About the Author:

Heather Glen is a Senior Lecturer, Faculty of English, University of Cambridge, and Fellow of New Hall, Cambridge.

Review:


"This groundbreaking study meticulously documents that Bronte's juvenilia and fiction reflect both her sophisticated literary intelligence and early Victorian cultural phenomena more pervasively than hitherto recognized."--Choice


"Sure to be influential in Brontë studies, it is shrewdly comparative, casting each novel against the rest to illuminate the edges of each; it is well-researched and often movingly written."--Studies in English Literature 1500-1900

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This stimulating study of Charlotte Bronte's novels draws on extensive original research in a range of early Victorian writings, on subjects ranging from women's day-dreaming to sanitary reform, from the Great Exhibition to early Victorian religious thought. It is not, however, merely a study of context. Through a close consideration of the ways in which Bronte's novels engage with the thinking of their time, it offers a powerful argument for the 'literary'as a distinctive mode of intelligence, and reveals a Charlotte Bronte more alert to her historical moment and far more aesthetically sophisticated than she has usually been taken to be. The study will be of interest not only to students of Victorian literature and society, but also to those literary criticsand theorists who are beginning to reconsider the nature of the aesthetic and its relation to ideology.
