The most cherished novel from each of England's talented sisters, in one gorgeously packaged volume
The Brontë family was a literary phenomenon unequalled before or since. Both Charlotte's Jane Eyre and Emily's Wuthering Heights have won lofty places in the pantheon and stirred the romantic sensibilities of generations of readers. For the first time ever, Penguin Classics unites these two enduring favorites with the lesser known but no less powerful work by their youngest sister, Anne. Drawn from Anne's own experiences as a governess, Agnes Grey offers a compelling view of Victorian chauvinism and materialism. Its inclusion makes The Brontë Sisters a must-have volume for anyone fascinated by this singularly talented family.
Charlotte Brontë (1816-1855) and Emily Brontë (1818- 1848) were sisters and novelists who wrote some of the most poignant romantic novels in the English language. Anne Brontë (1820-1949), their youngest sister, was also a novelist and poet, whose works were influenced by issues of social injustice.
