From AudioFile
Helen Graham has taken up residence in the bleak Wildfell Hall with her young son to escape her alcoholic and philandering husband. The story is narrated both by Helen and the man who falls in love with her. Frederick Davidson and Nadia May take the roles of the storytellers, and they do an excellent job of portraying both the male and female voices. May reads Helen's diary and correspondence. May's voice is young, fresh and naive, well-suited to Helen as a young woman; the voices of the men are excellent as well. Her laughter sounds genuine, and her portrayal of drunken men is perfect. She moves the narrative along crisply, with just the right touch of drama. Davidson's voicing is also excellent, but he tends to overdramatize at times, and his tempo is just a shade too fast. The choice to use both male and female...

The Bronte Myth

From Publishers Weekly
Even in their lifetimes, the Bronte sisters—Charlotte, Emily and Anne—were remarkable figures whose literary reputations were often shrouded in a web of myth and lies that to some degree still endures. In this volume, Miller, a literary critic and former deputy literary editor of The Independent, presents a markedly intelligent "metabiography" that sorts through these half-truths to give a fresh, original portrait of three exceptional writers. Celebrated by some of their 19th century readers as literary heroes and castigated by others as reckless and immoral, the Brontes defied conventions even as they tried to live within them: "revolutionizing the imaginative presentation of women’s inner lives" even as they cultivated the social persona of "the modest spinster daughter." Miller traces the...

?The one story in English literature in which style, characters and subject are in perfect keeping.? ?George Moore --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description
Drawing directly on her own experiences, Anne Bronte describes the isolation and dark ambiguity of the governess's life as lived by her fictional heroine Agnes Grey. Mature, insightful, and edged with a quiet irony, this first novel by the youngest of the Brontes displays her keen sense of moral responsiblity and sharp eye for bourgeois attitudes and behavior.

Book Description
The author of this study seeks to show that it was Anne Brontë, whose departure into the field of the realistic semi- autobiographic novel with a contemporary setting, launched the greatest of her siblings' achievements. P. J. M. Scott considers the whole oeuvre and illuminates its leading, nutritive characteristics. The book studies her poems, "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall", and "Agnes Grey" which, with its quiet realism and unrestrained passion, made a substantial contribution to, and development of, the nineteenth century's greatest literary art form.


Anne Bronte: The Other One

·
 
Book Description
àIAnne Brontë: The Other One is the first full-length study to provide a feminist reading of the life and work of this youngest Brontë. In the Brontë mythology of three talented, intimate, and devoted sisters, Anne has played, in George Moore's words, the role of "literary Cinderella," relegated to the ashes of history for her failure to reach the standards set by her sisters. Elizabeth Langland demonstrates that the sisterly context, which enabled the work of all three, has proved detrimental to a full critical appreciation of Anne. Measured by the standards of Emily and Charlotte, Anne's work must inevitably suffer. Through a close examination of the life, poetry, and novels, Elizabeth Langland shows that Anne's work drew its inspiration from a different literary tradition than that which...
