    Paperback Ï The Brontës ePUB Ì brontës book, The Brontës PDFEPUBThis is very very long but well worth the read as it delves deep into the whole family and how they influenced each other and dispels lots of myths that have somehow become ingrained about the Brontes

    Paperback Ï The Brontës ePUB Ì brontës book, The Brontës PDFEPUBJuliet Barker's The Brontës published in 1994 is a humungo 830 pages followed by 170 pages of notes It is freuently so it seems referred to as the definitive Brontë biography which is why I asked my friend The Blond Knitter to buy it for me when I won her blog contest I like to think of the writers of definitive biographies crying Follow that as they write the final line I wouldThe Brontës totally lives up to its billing Between the text and the notes which I only dipped into I really did feel that Barker had explored every possible source available to her And yet not once not once I am not kidding you was I bored This could be due to my fascination with all things 19th century literature but I think I'll put it down to good writingAnd I discovered so many inter

    Paperback Ï The Brontës ePUB Ì brontës book, The Brontës PDFEPUBThis is such an exceptional book The sheer volume of information the minute details the vigorous search for truth and the length of the biography makes for dizzying palpable time travel After weeks and weeks of immersion I feel full of Haworth and full of the lives that weren't mine but seemed so close Barker's prose is elegant and fluid but what is most engaging and most admirable is the work and rigour and effort that are comprised here Truly truly amazing Above all there is a sense of investigative prowess and integrity Barker is passionate about her subject but never blind and never complacent She is shattering the myth because she is much interested in the truth its thousand of facets its depths and its grey areas Saintliness martyrdom evilness are all cast aside and the Brontë family as well a

    Paperback Ï The Brontës ePUB Ì brontës book, The Brontës PDFEPUBBored to senselessness at times Exhaustive comprehensive yes But Barker is not a writer nor one who can spin an interesting tale out of dust The writing reminds me of one of those endless droning tour guides who just won't shut up and let you enjoy magic they insist on analyzing the larva incubating in the corner The detail is wonderful and wondrous to those who love the Brontes as I do but the message is carried by an oh so average medium Three stars is generous only for the volume of facts herein presented I had to skim some or I'd be dead now under its weight

    Paperback Ï The Brontës ePUB Ì brontës book, The Brontës PDFEPUBIt took a full two months to finish this book After watching the recent biopic about the Bronte siblings I was excited to read this biography which had been sitting very large and intimidating on my shelves for a few years However when I started reading I found out just how incredibly detailed the book is about every possible aspect of the Brontes' lives including their father's life education and career befo

    Paperback Ï The Brontës ePUB Ì brontës book, The Brontës PDFEPUBIt's a fascinating book definitely a must read for everyone interested in the Brontes than just in passing If the recently published The Bronte Family was just an overview of the Bronte history Brontes Wild Genius on the Moors provides the necessary depth and a wealth of information regarding the five key Brontes the father Patrick the three famous sisters and the wayward son Branwell In fact at times the book focuses on Branwell with sympathy than is afforded his sisters One gets the sense that Barker wants to right the wrongs that other Bronte biographers did to Branwell and goes a little overboard a few times Branwell is depicted as essentially blameless in his downfall he was seduced enabled and led into the dark side mostly by his lover Mrs Lydia Robinson Mrs Robinson in turn is portrayed as a straight up vamp who first seduces poor almost innocent Branwell then waits for her husband to croak and then o hor

    Paperback Ï The Brontës ePUB Ì brontës book, The Brontës PDFEPUBFor Brontë devotees I confess to skipping over most of Patrick's letters to local newspapers Nonetheless the account of Charlotte's lionization in the literary world following the success of Jane Eyre is fascinating And Barker's stark descriptions of the deaths of Emily Anne and Charlotte are deeply moving
