Essence of the Brontes : A Compilation with Essays, Paperback / softback Book

Essence of the Brontes : A Compilation with Essays Paperback / softback


First published by Peter Owen in 1993, this book brings together Muriel Spark's writings on the Bronte sisters, including a selection of their letters and a selection of Emily Bronte's poems.

Perceptively but unsentimentally, Spark considers the Brontes' lives and works, including their generally disastrous attempts at teaching, and reflects on her own fascination, as a writer and a reader, with Emily Bronte and with 'the immortal Wuthering Heights and its nightmare hero'.

This edition features a new foreword by Boyd Tonkin, Literary Editor at the Independent.
