Forlagets beskrivelse
On the two hundredth anniversary of her birth, a landmark biography transforms Charlotte Bront? from a tragic figure into a modern heroine.
?
Charlotte Bront? famously lived her entire life in an isolated parsonage on a remote English moor with a demanding father and siblings whose astonishing childhood creativity was a closely held secret. The genius of Claire Harman?s biography is that it transcends these melancholy facts to reveal a woman for whom duty and piety gave way to quiet rebellion and fierce ambition.

Drawing on letters unavailable to previous biographers, Harman depicts Charlotte?s inner life with absorbing, almost novelistic intensity. She seizes upon a moment in Charlotte?s adolescence that ignited her determination to reject poverty and obscurity: While working at a girls? school in Brussels, Charlotte fell in love with her married professor, Constantin Heger, a man who treated her as ?nothing special to him at all.? She channeled her torment into her first attempts at a novel and resolved to bring it to the world's attention.

Charlotte helped power her sisters? work to publication, too. But Emily?s Wuthering Heights was eclipsed by Jane Eyre, which set London abuzz with speculation: Who was this fiery author demanding love and justice for her plain and insignificant heroine? Charlotte Bront??s blazingly intelligent women brimming with hidden passions would transform English literature. And she savored her literary success even as a heartrending series of personal losses followed.

Charlotte Bront?
is a groundbreaking view of the beloved writer as a young woman ahead of her time. Shaped by Charlotte?s lifelong struggle to claim love and art for herself, Harman?s richly insightful biography offers readers many of the pleasures of Bront??s own work.

Bibliotekernes beskrivelse
"A groundbreaking biography that places an obsessive, unrequited love at the heart of the writer's life story, transforming her from the tragic figure we have previously known into a smoldering Jane Eyre. Famed for her beloved novels, Charlotte Bront?e has been known as well for her insular, tragic family life. The genius of this biography is that it delves behind this image to reveal a life in which loss and heartache existed alongside rebellion and fierce ambition. Harman seizes on a crucial moment in the 1840's when Charlotte worked at a girls' school in Brussels and fell hopelessly in love with the husband of the school's headmistress. Her torment spawned her first attempts at writing for publication, and he haunts the pages of every one of her novels--he is Rochester in Jane Eyre, Paul Emanuel in Villette. Another unrequited love--for her publisher--paved the way for Charlotte to enter a marriage that ultimately made her happier than she ever imagined. Drawing on correspondence unavailable to previous biographers, Claire Harman establishes Bront?e the heroine of her own story, one as dramatic and triumphant as one of her own novels"--
