The Tenant of Wildfell Hall - Paperback

ISBN: 9780140434743

ID: 9780140434743

"The Penguin Classics" edition of Anne Bronte's "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall", her groundbreaking study of a woman's valiant struggle for independence from an abusive husband is edited with an introduction and notes by Stevie Davis. Gilbert Markham is deeply intrigued by Helen Graham, a beautiful and secretive young woman who has moved into nearby Wildfell Hall with her young son. He is quick to offer Helen his friendship, but when her reclusive behaviour becomes the subject of local gossip and speculation, Gilbert begins to wonder whether his trust in her has been misplaced. It is only when she allows Gilbert to read her diary that the truth is revealed and the shocking details of the disastrous marriage she has left behind emerge. Told with great immediacy, combined with wit and irony, "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall" is a powerful depiction of a woman's fight for domestic independence and creative freedom. In her introduction Stevie Davies discusses "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall" as feminist testament, inspired by Anne Bronte's experiences as a governess and by the death of her brother Branwell Bronte, and examines the novel's language, biblical references and narrative styles. Anne Bronte (1820-1849), youngest of the Bronte sisters, was born at Thornton, West Yorkshire. Her father was a curate, and her mother died when she was a baby, leaving five daughters and one son. After the death of her sisters Maria and Elizabeth from tuberculosis in 1825, the Bronte children were homeschooled, and together they created fantasy worlds and kingdoms which they explored in writing. Anne worked as a governess between 1840 and 1845, after which she published "Agnes Grey" (1847) and "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall" (1848) under the pen-name Acton Bell. Anne Bronte died in 1849. If you enjoyed "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall" you might also like Edith Wharton's "The Age of Innocence", also available in "Penguin Classics".
