9780199576968: Selected Letters (Oxford World's Classics)

Full of acute observations, pithy character sketches, and passionate convictions, the letters of Charlotte Brontë are our most direct source of information about the lives of the Brontës and our closest approach to the author of Jane Eyre. In them Charlotte writes of life at Haworth Parsonage, her experiences at a Belgian school, and her intense feelings for the Belgian schoolteacher, M. Heger. She endures the agony of the death of her siblings, and enjoys the success as a writer that brings her into contact with the London literary scene. Vivid and intimate, her letters give fresh insight into the novels, and into the development of her distinct literary style. The only available edition, this selection is derived from Margaret Smith's three-volume edition of Brontë's complete letters. In addition to Smith's Editor's Preface, the edition includes a critical introduction by Janet Gezari, who looks at the relationship between Brontë's letters and her fiction and how the letters add to the debate about her literary persona and the split between her public and her private life.

About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

About the Author:


Margaret Smith is Vice-President of the Brontë Society and editor of the complete three-volume edition of the Letters. She is co-author, with Christine Alexander, of The Oxford Companion to the Brontes. Janet Gezari is the author of Charlotte Bronte and Defensive Conduct: the Author and the Body at Risk (1992) and Last Things: Emily Bronte's Poems (OUP, 2007). She has also written the introduction to the new edition of Brontë's Shirley for OWC.

Review:

A further dose of Bronte brilliance from Charlotte, whose lively letters are packed with astute observation. * Val Hennesy, Daily Mail * To read these wonderful letters is to feel an almost spooky contact with their extraordinary author. * Val Hennesy, Dail Mail *
