An Emily Brontë Reading List

  • John Hewish


From the bibliographical aspect, the Brontës are almost indivisible, and the literature is, of course, extensive, commencing even before Mrs Gaskell’s work in 1857. It is more difficult than is the case with many writers to distinguish between biography and criticism. If one attempts to be comprehensive, a great deal of more or less dead wood (but part of the Brontë phenomenon) must be included.
