its just so beautiful! i imagine if everyone could embrace the power that we see in this book, would be a better wworld!! the wild, the life (another one), the love and care is just some words that keep us close to emily's poems. if you dont have, need to!

5-0 out of 5 stars Emily bronte
Excellent timing, the book was for my sister and her 24th birthday. She was an English major in college and loves the writer.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read/own book
I recommend this volume of poetry to any Emily Bronte fan. I own a copy of this collection of poetry. I can certainly see traces of Wuthering Heights in these poems. My favorite poem (besides the Gondal poems) is a chilling account of a dark young man coming to a family's home for dinner. I'm not sure if the young man is human, ghost, or demon, but if you read this poem in this amazing collection you can judge for yourself. Also at the begining is an informative essay on the Gondal poems. I suggest that one should read that before beginning the poems because it is most helpful. Again this is a must-read book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Collection
Emily Bronte's poetry is wild and beautiful.Ranging between gentle melancholy to fierce pride, her poems successfully capture human emotion.Many of her poems are about, or written from the viewpoint of the inhabitants of, the fictional kingdom of Gondal.Although these are set in an imaginary land, the Gondal poems stand well alongside the more personal verse.This particular volume is valuable because it includes a description and history of the Gondal saga Emily and her sister Anne created.It is often hard, in other collections, to tell which is personal and which is fictional, but here the Gondal poems are listed.This is very useful to those who wish to study this creation of the Bronte imagination.Also useful is the the chronological order of the poems (as far as can be determined), which makes it easy to follow her development as a poet.I recommend it highly.

5-0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking
Few who read Emily Bronte's poems and magnificent novel, Wuthering Heights, can fail to be moved by the sheer power of her language and insight. Though her tragic early death robbed the world of countlessliterary treasures, EJB's poetry here provides plenty of beautiful poetry(some of it foreshadowing WH) for those who love her to enjoy and study.Read it and savor it. ...

Product Description
Largely self-educated, Emily Bronte (1818-1848) was her father's favorite daughter and spent most of her life at the rectory in Haworth, on the edge of the Yorkshire moors. She lead a protected, uneventful existence, with almost no social contacts. Robert Barnard examines her insulated childhood, peculiarities, social boorishness, and aversion to relationships. He includes excerpts of Emily's lyrical poems of her twenties which presage the raw intensity of Wuthering Heights. Many aspects of her only novel are shaped by her own experiences, and the author traces the real-life counterparts of characters, landscape, and buildings. He draws extensively from critical sources varying from early reviews of Wuthering Heights to Gaskell's appraisal of Emily's "stern selfishness," to Juliet Barker's recent biography of the Bronte family. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Visually Appealing, Packed With Facts
The British Library Writers' Lives Series on EMILY BRONTE was shelved in the Biography section at my library with a "Young Adult" sticker on the spine.But why should the YA set have all the fun?This 112-page volume is packed with goodies:

It's Colorful.

Glossy pages, which makes for great reproductions of artwork.

Reproductions of Emily Bronte's original manuscripts (clearly readable with a magnifying glass or reading glasses).

Maps of where the Brontes lived and the settings for their books.

Many color and B&W photos of the Bronte homes.

Emily's watercolors and drawings (quite good ones, too).

Photos and drawings of structures and places that inspired Wuthering Heights.

Emily's poetry (also quite good).

Chronology of the Brontes.

Index.

Further reading.

This biography is primarly about Emily, but because her life was so intertwined with her sister Charlotte's life, the book is almost a dual biography.Probably because a young woman's life in the 19th century (on the English moor, anyway) was so family-centered, do we read so much about the entire Bronte family and those they daily interacted with.

Robert Barnard (author) is the Chairman of the Bronte Society and a writer of crime novels as well.His mystery/detective sense shines through in this volume, as he seems to be able to spot a smoking gun here and there in the Bronte history.He often highlights discrepancies, mysteries, and twists in the history of the Bronte family.Apparantly, there is no shortage of such mysteries and has given rise to many theories about the family and the girls.

This book is a fine introduction to the life of the Brontes.The photos, drawings, and other coloful items included in this slim volume bring this 19th century history to life.I highly recommend it for Young Adults and other adults as well. ... Read more


8. Metaphysical Rebellion in the Works of Emily Bronte

Editorial Review

Product Description

While Emily Bronte is best known for her masterpiece, Wuthering Heights, her poetry and French essays have received scant critical attention. As lyrical and inventive as any poet of her era, Bronte infused her work with an overriding concern for the condition of mankind, the meaning of life, and the ever-present questions that man asks about the nature of the universe, divine creation, and the fate of humanity. In her reinterpretation of Bronte's works, Jill Dix Ghnassia scrutinizes the writer's metaphysical questioning throughout the canon. By dividing Bronte's poetry into four chronological periods, Ghnassia shows how Bronte's writing evolved and matured during her short career, culminating in one of the most haunting and powerful novels of the Victorian era.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not likeable, but likeable!
I too read this book for high school. I found myself not liking any of the characters and wondering how I could like a book with such an unlikeable cast! I soon realised, however, that the point is not to 'like' thecharacters particularly (as we are made to do in most modern books andmovies) but to see their struggles, passion and lives for what they are.Life is hard, life can be ugly.Another thing that struck me was theintense love and devotion to Catherine from such an unloveable being asHeathcliff. The story tells me that Catherine and Heathcliff could onlyreally love each other.My advice is read this book. You may not likeall the characters and you can forget all the romance cliches, but it isvaluable to know both as a piece for school and a tragic story. Oh, anddo read Joseph's parts aloud-it helps!

1-0 out of 5 stars Wow, what a waste of my time!
I am a senior in high school...My teacher loves this book for some WEIRD reason.. She made all kinds of hype over it and made it sound like a great book and we would love it.How wrong she was!!!I don't think one personin class liked the book, and most of us are advanced readers.At any rate,the teacher still thinks its a great book and tries to ignore the fact thatnobody likes it.The storyline is boring ...its someone telling anotherstory....when half the characters have the same name and its really hard tofigure out who is doing what and who is who at times!I wish I didn't haveto read this book!

2-0 out of 5 stars This novel was really complicated and a waste of my time.
I don't understand why we (seniors) had to read Wuthering Heights in order to graduate.The book has nothing to do with us at all.The book was really complicated and the movie was worse.Why did they use the samecharacters over and over again.And by the way, how old was Nelly Deananyway?This book really sucked. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Stands the test of time
the unknowledgeable who said the book is a waste of time(look above) have no clue how to comprehend this book. it is a book that showed me all facets of life. it is about true love, and the power it can have on us--good or bad. this book is about manipulation, power struggles, and blind love. many of the relationships in this book are created out of spite, ignorance, or greed. this book showed me that love can create more emotions than just happiness. it can be wild and unruley also.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's all good
This book was exceptionally well written.It is terrible how the majority of books are all happy and perky and there is never a cloud in the sky. In this book, Bronte snapped me back to the reality that there is unhappiness in the world andyou have to live with it. She showed that love lasts through all darkness and bad situations. So if you are looking for a good historic love story, but not a "Happily Ever After" this is your best bet.

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible!
My advice on this book: don't waste your time!If you are very strange and want to improve your strangeness with more strangeness, then go right ahead.But I should've read something better.It is not a very realistic picture of the world or something that would inspire you to be closer in your walk with the Lord.If there was a slot where you could put in0 stars that would be what I rate it.

The most gifted of her famous, troubled family, Emily Bronte has too often been portrayed in "storm-tossed, sentimental" biographies, according to Katherine Frank. Now Frank presents a startling new interpretation: pledged to self-denial and social isolation, Emily starved herself, contributing to her wild imagination. 16-page insert. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Informative
I found this novel to be well written and did teach me about Emily Bronte-or what I did not know about her already. I have read quite a bit on the Bronte's (including all of their books) so I had a wealth on of information on the Bronte's before I read this biography. Frank's idea of Emily starving herself was very convincing and she made a plausible case. I did not agree with her view on Branwell or Charlotte. Sometimes I felt that Frank was writing a bio on Charlotte rather than Emily. It is understandable because so much is already known about Charlotte, but I thought she focused her attention a little to much on the older sister, and I did not agree with some of her views on Charlotte. Frank made it very clear that she hated Branwell and she made him out to be a one dimensional villain straight out from one of the sisters novels. Frank ignored Anne almost completely, and if I had not been a fan of Anne's novels, I would have forgotten that there was another sister almost completely.
Frank draws from a wealth of research. She clearly did her homework, and knew a lot about life at the Parsonage. I liked how she started off talking about Emily's parents and their relationship so you got a clear view on her family.
Sometimes I felt like I was reading a story rather than a biography because she wrote it so well, but this also was a disadvantage because sometimes Frank treated it as if it was her own story. I would give this five stars but, as stated above, I felt that she under developed Anne and Branwell, and over developed Charlotte, as if they were characters in her own story, rather then people that had actually lived and breathed.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as you might believe...
Many of Frank's arguments were convincing to me--especially those regarding Emily's peculiar eating habits. All of her conclusions were backed up with sources, etc. Although I didn't believe this spin on the life of the Brontes word for word, I do think it was worthly of more than 1 star, hence my review. Check it out--you may disagree, but isn't that part of the fun?

1-0 out of 5 stars Chainless Soul?
Although it seems unrealistic to expect complete objectivity from any biographer, Katherine Frank shows a level of bias toward her subject somewhat striking in the genre.Her descriptions of Emily Bronte areenthusiastic and warm, even when Emily's behavior (by her own description)warrants at least some kind of approbation, or at least evenhandedness. This unmitigated warmth is reserved for Emily alone, however; Charlotte,for example, is portrayed as living a constant struggle withconventionality which Emily gloriously escapes.Of particular interest isthe expression of Emily and Charlotte's intense relationship.Charlotteconsistently suffers in the comparisons with her sister -- at least byFrank's view.She doesn't seem interested in exploring Charlotte'ssuffering under Emily's emotional tyranny, even though she does describe itin detail.One gets the impression that Charlotte would do better in thisbiography if only she would care a little less about what others think. Their brother, Branwell, fares badly as well, and Frank's conclusionregarding one of Branwell's many pathetic attempts to be employed that hehad been terminated due to a homosexual advance on his pupil seemsstrikingly unsubstantiated. Frank seems to come to this conclusion onlybecause she can't think of any other. In the end, it's not that thereader can't see what Frank shows as part of Emily's character, it's thatit's not the only thing to be seen. ... Read more

The Bronte sisters have little resemblance to any writers prior to their publication. They are viewed as self-generated, an autonomous myth in their lives and in their work. This title offers an extensive biography, along with critical examinations of their novels as a group, Withering Heights, Agnes Grey, Villette, and more.

This series is edited by Harold Bloom, Sterling Professor of the Humanities, Yale University; Henry W. and Albert A. Berg Professor of English, New York University Graduate School; preeminent literary critic of our time. The lives of the greatest writers of the world are explored in the new series Bloom’s BioCritiques. In addition to a lengthy biography, each book includes an extensive critical analysis of the writer’s work, as well as critical views by important literary critics throughout history. These volumes are the perfect introduction to critical study of the important authors currently read and discussed in high schools, colleges, and graduate schools. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A focussed, critical look at the Bronte sisters
This slender volume contains a number of interesting critical articles on the Brontes and some analysis of influences on their writing.Some comparisons are made between the Brontes themselves as well as other writers.

The book includes a useful bibliography, a timeline and lists some Bronte-related websites.

Recommended for those who want to know more about the life, times and influences behind the Brontes without immersing themselves in the glorious detail that the biographies provide.

Recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars the best essay collection on Emily Bronte and her work
If you don't have any collection of articles about Emily Bronte or her work (or have only the Bloom's little book, or the selection in Norton Edition or Linda Peterson's one) this is one of the best to own (the other alternative being the TWO Macmillan Casebooks on Wuthering Heights). But this book, like the old Anne Smith (ed.) one, has also important studies on the life and religion (so to speak) of Emily, and it covers an often neglected field: her poems! OK, it's hardcover and it's not cheap, but is something of a must, although it is debatable whether the pair of Macmillan Casebooks is a better option. ... Read more

This new book on the Brontes concentrates on the way in which the literary interests and expressions of Charlotte and Emily were built up. It makes use of recent research into background and reading matter to investigate the development of the authors' poetry and novels. Recently discovered evidence on the background and lives of the two sisters is used to plot their progress and to show how Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights grow, not only from the experiences of Charlotte and Emily Bronte, but also from their reading and personal contacts. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars a classic !
I wonder both how it is that I'm the first to review it and why it has gone out of print! Have we got our senses?
This is, by far, the best SHORT "literary live" ever written. A classic in the sense that, being easy to read, every word is important and fits its unique place: you can only add or detract one word off this little marvel so much for the worse. It links beautifully what we KNOW about the life of Emily and Charlotte with their lasting work. Many Brontë students will find that this is enough for them. If not, there is always CHITHAM and GERIN full-scale biographies (and I'm thinking mostly about Emily). ... Read more

Product Description
Emily Brontë's achievement as a poet has been eclipsed by her masterpiece, Wuthering Heights. The Poems of Emily Brontë is the first edition to appear with full scholarly apparatus, and to preserve the writer's original (sometimes unorthodox) presentation and revisions. With no manuscript of Wuthering Heights extant, this edition of her sometimes undervalued poetry gives the reader the rare chance of seeing the writer's creative mind at work. Recreating the literary context of the poems, this edition also takes into account recent critical insights. The enlightening introduction and commentary place the poems in their literary context, and a large number of echoes and parallels from Scott, Byron, Moore, and other authors are identified. ...

Set on the moors, it is a pity that the Hound of the Baskervilles didn't get 'em.This would have saved a lot of characters a lot of grief. An orphan is taken in, and the problems start there as he grows up, has his own problems and inflicts them on others. The great detective has something to say about such places : "But look at these lonely houses, each in its own fields, filled for the most part with poor ignorant folk who know little of the law. Think of the deeds of hellish cruelty, the hidden wickedness which may go on, year in, year out, in such places, and none the wiser. Had this lady who appeals to us for help gone to live in Winchester, I should never have had a fear for her. It is the five miles of country which makes the danger." 2 out of 5
