The Brontės: Charlotte Brontė and Her Family
Using recently uncovered sources and a societal perspective, Fraser has created a unique portrait of the two sisters and their family. Writing from a contemporary perspective and drawing on previously unknown documents, Fraser makes us see Charlotte Bronte and her sisters as their contemporaries saw them, as passionately outspoken women who dared to claim for their sex an equal right to the passions and desires of men.
