    • I knew I was going to like this biography when Chitham started out in the introduction being very firm about working from facts and clearly identifying speculation This is especially important in Bronte biography, since so many legends and misconceptions have grown up around all of the sisters, and perhaps particularly Emily Chitham calls this investigative biography , and I think he does an excellent job staying true to his standards.Chitham does take for granted, I think, that his readers are [...]


    • I am fascinated by Emily Bronte This is the latest of the biographies I have read about her noting that the book itself was published in 1987.Many will be familiar with the Bronte sisters Charlotte, Emily and Anne Many readers will know Emily Bronte as the author of Wuthering Heights a novel which is probably loved and loathed in equal measure Some of us also are familiar with Emily s poetry But of Emily herself we tend to know very little directly and this makes her fascinating to those of us w [...]


    • Edward Chitham does Emily Bronte justice with this well researched, thoroughly thought out description of the author s life In it, I found the same impassioned, mercuriel woman who had enough dark intensity to write Wuthering Heights I also came away with a better understanding of her sister Charlotte Chitham still depicts the elder sister as one unable to understand Emily but the author shows, through painstaking examples that this inability was a result of Emily s intense privacy even with th [...]


    • This is a revised edition of an earlier book, but not having read the original, I can t say what the differences are Chitham, a Bronte scholar, is very cautious in his approach and ultimately this reaps rewards He builds a well documented, credible picture of a subject about whose life relatively little is known and who has been much mythologised He contrasts Emily Bronte as a vivacious little girl with the withdrawn, but brilliant woman she became and left me with a fresh sense of sadness that [...]


    • I didn t think this work was very scholarly at all Chitham sets out his stall to do a thorough investigation and, in my view, then descends into pure unsupported speculation He uses the usual manuscript materials published and unpublished but I could not agree with his analyses I don t recommend this book at all.


    • It was interesting to read a book dedicated solely to Emily, as the focus is usually on Charlotte As an avid reader of all things to do with the Brontes it didn t tell me that much I didn t already know, but I don t think I had grasped that Emily was so anti religion.


    • It stretches out quite a bit and in places I found it hard to keep on reading but at the end I felt it had been definitely worth it and an insightful journey
