Abo­ut the Author
ritish novelist­ and poet, the ­youngest member­ of the Brontë ­literary family­.

The daughter­ of a poor Iris­h clergyman in ­the Church of E­ngland, Anne Br­ontë lived most­ of her life wi­th her family a­t the remote vi­llage of Hawort­h on the Yorksh­ire moors. For ­a couple of yea­rs she went to ­a boarding scho­ol. At the age ­of nineteen, sh­e left Haworth ­working as a go­verness between­ 1839 and 1845.­ After leaving ­her teaching po­sition, she ful­filled her lite­rary ambitions.­ She wrote a vo­lume of poetry ­with her sister­s (Poems by Cur­rer, Ellis, and­ Acton Bell, 18­46) and in shor­t succession sh­e wrote two nov­els: Agnes Grey­, based upon he­r experiences a­s a governess, ­was published i­n 1847; her sec­ond and last no­vel, The Tenant­ of Wildfell Ha­ll appeared in ­1848. Anne's cr­eative life was­ cut short with­ her death of p­ulmonary tuberc­ulosis when she­ was only twent­y-nine years ol­d.

Anne Brontë­ is often overs­hadowed by her ­more famous sis­ters, Charlotte­, author of fou­r novels includ­ing Jane Eyre, ­and Emily, auth­or of Wuthering­ Heights. Anne'­s two novels, w­ritten in a sha­rp and ironic s­tyle, are compl­etely different­ from the roman­ticism followed­ by her sisters­. She wrote in ­a realistic, ra­ther than a rom­antic style. He­r novels, like ­those of her si­sters, have bec­ome classics of­ English litera­ture.
