Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198614322, Paperback)

The works of Anne, Charlotte, and Emily Brontë are among the best-known in English literature. From the masterly fusion of romance and realism in Wuthering Heights to the passion and drama of Jane Eyre, the works of these three sisters have captured the hearts and imagination of readers everywhere. Their tragic, real-life stories only contribute to the timeless attraction to these three brilliant writers. With The Oxford Companion to the Brontës, Christine Alexander and Margaret Smith provide a comprehensive volume about the lives, works, and reputations of the Brontë sisters, together with their father, Patrick, an author in his own right, and their brother, Branwell who, along with his sister Charlotte, created the imaginary world of Angria. This authoritative guide is organized in an easy-to-use A-Z format, offers extensive cross-referencing, and provides chronologies of the sisters' work, including a list of juvenilia, first line of poems and Brontë art, as well as maps and illustrations for quick, easy study and further research. In addition, the authors offer insight into the publishing history, biographical studies, collectors and museums, book illustrations, and theoretical and critical approaches to the Brontës' writing. The Oxford Companion to the Brontës is a unique and fascinating guide that will appeal to all lovers of English literature.
