Charlotte Brontė: The Self Conceived
The lives of literary figures have always provided a source of fascination; the tragic life of Charlotte Bront is no different.

Through her study, Moglen seeks to examine the two dimensions that are essential to any study of Bront : the life she lived and the life she created within the pages of fiction.
