The Secret History of Jane Eyre : How Charlotte Bronte Wrote Her Masterpiece Hardback

Description

In this perceptive book, John Pfordresher shares the enthralling story of how Charlotte Bronte wrote her masterpiece and why she tried so vehemently to disown it.

What few people knew then-and even fewer know today-was that as she tended her invalid father and held the family together, Bronte was re-imagining her experiences as a governess, her fears for her dissolute brother and her devastating passion for a married man into an immersive, brilliant novel.

By aligning the details of Bronte's life with the timeless characters and plot of Jane Eyre, Pfordresher reveals the remarkable parallels between one of literature's most beloved heroines and its vulnerable and deeply human creator and why Bronte didn't want those parallels exposed.
