Raised in isolation in the lonely village of Haworth, high on the edge of the magnificent and brooding scenery of the Yorkshire moors, the three Bronte sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne, produced a collection of novels unique in English literature. Profound, mystical and passionate, these are stories which once read can never be forgotten.
Born of an Irish clergyman and a Cornish mother, the Celtic blood of the Bronte children asserted itself in haunting stories of enormous dramatic power.
The two novels collected here are the work of Charlotte and Emily. They are set in a beautiful but awe-inspiring landscape and they explore the darkest and most extreme emotions. To read this collection is to be swept up in the most highly-charged and memorable relationships ever portrayed, with heroes and heroines of unrivaled depth and complexity. Here are some of the most memorable character in literature – the mesmerizing gipsy foundling, Heathcliff; the tragic Mr Rochester and his saviour, Jane Eyre.
