Anne Brontë Poems
Nearly sixty of Anne’s poems survive, and of these more than a third have links with Gondal. Most of the latter may be divided into two groups: her earliest poems, written when she was sixteen to eighteen, and those she wrote from September 1845, after resigning her post as governess at Thorp Green, to October 1846, before and after the adaptation of her recorded experiences to their fictional form in Agnes Grey. If Anne made no rapid technical advance in her poetry after her early period, it was almost certainly because she had little time to pursue it; she did not enjoy good health; and she was away from home, with little time or energy for creative writing.
