"After more than 150 yeas, the Brontës remain as fascinating (and inspiring) as ever. They have lost none of their allure. If any writer has earned the final word about their lives, it's Barker, with her triumphant and eloquent book." The Los Angeles Times
"An outstanding achievement. A magnificent portrait which not only contains a wealth of important material, but is also a delight to read. It is hard to imagine it ever being surpassed. Definitive." Rebecca Fraser, The Times (London)
Juliet Barker's landmark book is the first definitive history of the Brontës. It demolishes the myths, yet provides startling new information that is just as compelling-but true. Based on first-hand research among all the Brontë manuscripts and contemporary historical documents never before used by Brontë biographers, this newly revised edition is both scholarly and compulsively readable.
The Brontës is a revolutionary picture of the world's favorite literary family.
"As a work of scholarship it is brilliant. For those with a passion for the Brontës, or for Victoriana, it is a stupendous read." The Independent on Sunday
"Definitive. Barker's greatest service is to rescue the family of Charlotte, Emily, and Anne from myth, who were provided particularly hideous stereotypes by Charlotte's first biographer, Elizabeth Gaskell. The doom and tragedy are there." The Daily Beast
