Shirley is an 1849 social novel by the English novelist Charlotte Bront�. It was Bront�'s second published novel after Jane Eyre (originally published under Bront�'s pseudonym Currer Bell). The novel is set in Yorkshire in the period 1811-12, during the industrial depression resulting from the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812. The novel is set against a backdrop of the Luddite uprisings in the Yorkshire textile industry.The novel's popularity led to Shirley's becoming a woman's name. The title character was given the name that her father had intended to give a son. Before the publication of the novel, Shirley was an uncommon - but distinctly male - name and would have been an unusual name for a woman.[1] Today it is regarded as a distinctly female name and an uncommon male name.

Nineteenth-century novelist Elizabeth Gaskell was inspired to start writing in part through her friendship with Charlotte Bronte. Later, Gaskell took on the project of composing the first serious, full-length biography of Bronte, a work that scholars agree did much to fan the flames of Bronte's then-burgeoning reputation. The Life of Charlotte Bronte is a fascinating read for fans who want to learn more about the Jane Eyre author's life and career.

The lives of literary figures have always provided a source of fascination; the tragic life of Charlotte Brontë is no different. In this interpretive critical biography, Helene Moglen "takes for granted earlier, exhaustive studies" done on Brontë to produce an analysis that incorporates not only the facts of her life, but also their influence upon her works. Through her study, Moglen seeks to examine the two dimensions that are essential to any study of Brontë: the life she lived and the life she created within the pages of fiction. By examining the paradoxical personal tragedy and artistic fulfillment that made up Charlotte Brontë's life, Helen Moglen shows the evolution of Brontë's feminism. Through Brontë's growth, Moglen then is able to "explore explicitly formations of the modern female psyche." Considered to be a major biography fusing together the making of literature and the formation of personality, Moglen offers a new critical insight into Brontë's struggle for self-definition and how it can be reflected through the lives of readers more than a century later.

is a novel by English writer Charlotte Bront�. It was published on 16 October 1847, by Smith, Elder & Co. of London, England, under the pen name "Currer Bell." The first American edition was published the following year by Harper & Brothers of New York.Primarily of the Bildungsroman genre, Jane Eyre follows the emotions and experiences of its eponymous heroine, including her growth to adulthood and her love for Mr. Rochester, the Byronic[1] master of fictitious Thornfield Hall. In its internalisation of the action-the focus is on the gradual unfolding of Jane's moral and spiritual sensibility, and all the events are coloured by a heightened intensity that was previously the domain of poetry-Jane Eyre revolutionised the art of fiction. Charlotte Bront� has been called the 'first historian of the private consciousness' and the literary ancestor of writers like Joyce and Proust.[2] The novel contains elements of social criticism, with a strong sense of morality at its core, but is nonetheless a novel many consider ahead of its time given the individualistic character of Jane and the novel's exploration of classism, sexuality, religion, and proto-feminism.

Not illustrated. 1984 edition. Excerpt: ... lingered over through a whole life, recalled with unfaded tenderness, and answering the call with undimmed shine, out of that raven cloud foreshadowing death himself. I have been told since that Dr. Bretton was not so nearly perfect as I thought him; that his actual character lacked the depth, height, compass, and endurance it possessed in my creed. I don't know: he was as good to me as the well is to the parched wayfarer--as the L snn to the shivering jail-bird. I remember him heroic. Heroic at this moment will I hold him to be. He asked me, smiling, why I cared for his letter so very much. I thought, but did not say, that I prized it like the blood in my veins. I only answered that I had so few letters to care for. " I am sure you did not read it," said he, " or you would think nothing of it." " 1 read it, but only once. I want to read it again. I am sorrv it is lost." And I could not help weeping afresh. " Lucy, Lucy, my poor little god-sister (if there be such a relationship), here--here is your letter. Why is it not better worth such tears, and such tenderly exaggerating faith!" Curious, characteristic manceuvre! His quick eye had seen the letter on the floor when I sought it: his hand, as quick, had snatched it up. He had hidden it in his waistcoat pocket. If my trouble had wrought with a whit less stress and reality, I doubt whether he would ever have acknowledged or restored it. Tears of temperature one degree cooler than those I shed would only have amused Dr. John. Pleasure at regaining made me forget merited reproach for the teasing torment; my joy was great; it could not be concealed; yet I think it broke out more in countenance than language. I said little. "Are you satisfied now?" asked Dr. John. I replied that I was--satisfied and...
