About the Author:

Ann Dinsdale is the librarian of the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth, West Yorkshire, home of the world's largest collection of Bronteana. She writes and lectures on aspects of the Brontës' lives and has a particular interest in social conditions in mid-19th-century Haworth.

Review:

‘A trip to the West Yorkshire parsonage - now a fabulous museum - is a must. For anyone who can’t get there, The Brontes at Haworth is a good alternative. In words and pictures, the book brings the Haworth story to life. just reading it has made me search out my battered old copy of Wuthering Heights.’

  • `A welcome reissue in paperback of this lavishly illustrated introduction to the Brontes by Ann Disdale, elegantly relates the moving story of the tragic and intensely creative lives led within (and beyond) these four walls.'


'Ann Dinsdale presents a lively picture... For anyone intrigued by the Brontes, yet with only a sketchy knowledge, there could hardly be a better, certainly not a more attractive, primer.'

'Fans of the Brontes will enjoy this encyclopaedic guide to the life and times of Britain's most famous literary of sisters... Dinsdale's account can only help to ensure the enduring legacy of the sisters, whose work continues to be brought to life on stage and screen, from Haworth to Hollywood.'



A lively, informative, accurate and up-to-date introduction to the family and its extraordinary life... the task of telling what many would see as a too-familiar tale is well accomplished, though in its accuracy and style this book may well prove a hard act to follow

Book Description Book Condition: New. The Brontë sisters moved to Haworth Parsonage as children in 1820. It was there, on the edge of the dramatic landscape of the Yorkshire Moors, that they produced their influential and much-loved novels. Dinsdale paints a detailed picture of everyday life at Haworth in the 1840s, recounts the Brontë family history and describes the local village and surrounding countryside, as well as considering the sisters’ poetry and novels in the context of their background. The volume is illustrated with rarely-seen images from the Haworth archives, including drawings by Charlotte and Emily, as well as evocative photographs. Bookseller Inventory # 2957
