This new book on the Brontes concentrates on the way in which the literary interests and expressions of Charlotte and Emily were built up. It makes use of recent research into background and reading matter to investigate the development of the authors' poetry and novels. Recently discovered evidence on the background and lives of the two sisters is used to plot their progress and to show how Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights grow, not only from the experiences of Charlotte and Emily Bronte, but also from their reading and personal contacts.
