Branwell Brontë Poems
Branwell’s literary talent, unlike Charlotte’s, is felt more often in his poetry than in his prose. Such was his posthumous reputation that inevitably someone had to act as counsel for his defence, and this was well done by John Drinkwater in his edition of Branwell’s translations of Horace (1923). Assessing his life and work sympathetically and reasonably, he had no hesitation in claiming that ‘Branwell Brontë was the second poet in his family, and a very good second at that.’
