More from this Author. Murder by the Book Claire Harman. Sylvia Townsend Warner Claire Harman. About the Author. Now, on the th anniversary of Charlotte's birth, Claire Harman's landmark biography provides a bold new view of one of Britain's best loved writers, uncovering an inner life that touched the furthest extremes of human emotion.
Harman shows us an intense and troubled young woman from an astonishingly creative family, whose early works were produced in total secrecy. Struggling against the conventional limitations of both life and literature, Charlotte created a new kind of heroine which both shocked and inspired her Victorian contemporaries.
Love, loss, ambition and heartbreak: the anonymous author poured everything into her ground-breaking books, but lived it first. Harman's sane, unshowy re-telling is exactly right for the bicentenary next April.
The result is a retooled classic biographical narrative, shipshape and serviceable for the next years. Elegantly written, consistently perceptive This is a comprehensive biography to enjoy and admire. Harman writes well and she is a fine and sensitive critic. Superb retelling of Charlotte's story Harman tells [Charlotte's] story with quick wit, a sharp sympathy, and a fire and fury of her own. Full of pleasing and piquant detail, scraps of passing recollection assembled from the various lives and letters in which the Brontes featured and from which we might reconstruct their world. Elegant, sensitive, beautifully paced and moving.
She writes regularly for the literary press on both sides of the Atlantic and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in Her most recent work is Charlotte Bronte: A Life. For the latest books, recommendations, offers and more.
