Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855) was a major English novelist whose portrayal of strong, independent heroines kindled a movement in feminism in literature in the nineteenth century. Her works remain central to discussion of feminism in literature today and continue to stimulate and intrigue readers. This complete collection of her four novels – ‘Jane Eyre’, ‘Shirley’, ‘Villette’ and ‘The Professor’ – presented in a single volume is an essential edition for collectors, students and general lovers of the Brontës alike.

About the Author:

Charlotte Bronte (1816-55), Emily (1818-48) and Anne (1820-49) were daughters of the Reverend Patrick Bronte, a Church of England clergyman born in Northern Ireland. They had two other sisters, Maria and Elizabeth, and a brother, Branwell. Their mother died in 1821. Educated largely by their father's library at Haworth parsonage, the sisters worked as governesses and teachers, Charlotte spending some time in Brussels, accompanied on occasion by Emily. They published their books under the pseudonyms Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell, and did not reveal their true identities until July 1848. Emily died of tuberculosis, followed by Anne eight months later. Charlotte began to move in literary circles, meeting Thackeray, Harriet Martineau and her future biographer Elizabeth Gaskell. In 1854 she married her father's curate, but died nine months later in early pregnancy.

Emily Jane Bronte was an English novelist and poet, best remembered for her only novel, Wuthering Heights, now considered a classic of English literature. Emily was the third eldest of the four surviving Bronte siblings, between the youngest Anne and her brother Branwell. She wrote under the pen name Ellis Bell.
