Once Charlottes informal education was over she began to work as a governess and teacher in Yorkshire and Belgium so that she could add to the low family income and help to pay for her brother Branwells art education. Charlotte was a rather nervous young woman and didnt like to be away from home for too long. The sisters began to write more seriously and published poetry in 1846 under male pen names there was a lot of prejudice against women writers. The book was not a success and the sisters all moved on to write novels. Charlottes best-known book, Jane Eyre, appeared in 1847 and was soon seen as a work of genius. Charlotte really knew how to make characters and situations come alive.
Charlottes life was full of tragedy, never more so than when her brother Branwell and sisters Emily and Anne died within a few months in 1848/49. She married her fathers curate in 1854 but died in 1855, before her fortieth birthday.
