Edward Chitham's biography of Anne Bronte, the often underrated sister of Charlotte and Emily, makes imaginative use of recent research to redefine the personal and artistic relationship between Anne and her sisters, especially Emily. It produces new evidence about Anne's life away from home and re-examines the traumatic period before and after Branwell's 'disgrace'. It modifies the conventionally held view of Agnes Grey and reviews the evidence for Anne's relationship with William Weightman.

Now available in paperback, this biography provides an elegant and original life of one of the remarkable Bronte sisters.
