The Brontesaurus : An A-Z of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte (and Branwell) Hardback

Description

Did Charlotte Bronte take opium? Did the Reverend Bronte carry a loaded pistol? What, precisely, does `wuthering' mean?Distinguished literary critic John Sutherland takes an idiosyncratic look at the world of the Brontes, from the bumps on Charlotte's head to the nefarious origins of Mr Rochester's fortune, by way of astral telephony, letterwriting dogs, an exploding peat bog, and much, much more.

Also features `Jane Eyre abbreviated' by John Crace, author of the Guardian's `Digested Reads' column - read Charlotte Bronte's masterpiece in five minutes!
