Five novels by the nineteenth-century literary sisters who “turned domestic constraints into grist for brilliant books” (The Atlantic). This collection brings together five novels by Anne, Charlotte, and Emily Brontë in one volume. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë: When a visitor arrives at a gloomy and isolated house in northern England, he discovers a story of passion, vengeance, and tragedy, in this gothic novel that shocked the readers of its day. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë: Revolutionary for its time, this Victorian novel is narrated by its titular character, telling the story of her childhood as an abused orphan, her school years, her time as a governess, and her simmering passion for the elusive Mr. Rochester. Agnes Grey by Anne Brontë: This novel follows the experiences of a minister’s daughter who, when her family becomes impoverished, begins working as a governess, bringing her inside the homes of the English gentry, where she observes both material wealth and spiritual deprivation. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë: Helen Graham is known as the young widow who moved into a long-empty mansion with her son, took up an artistic career, and kept her distance from her neighbors. But readers of this classic, considered one of the earliest feminist novels, will discover there is more to Helen’s story. Shirley by Charlotte Brontë: Set in a time of war, economic troubles, and the Luddites’ rebellion against the rise of machines, this is the story of two female friends: one a strong-willed heiress, the other an insecure girl abandoned by her mother.

The novel follows Agnes Grey, a governess, as she works in several bourgeois families. The choice of central character allows Anne to deal with issues of oppression and abuse of women and governesses, isolation and ideas of empathy. An additional theme is the fair treatment of animals. Agnes Grey also mimics some of the stylistic approaches of bildungsromans, employing ideas of personal growth and coming to age, but representing a character who in fact does not gain in virtue.

Book Short Summary:

Agnes Grey is the debut novel of English author Anne Brontë (writing under the pen name of Acton Bell), first published in December 1847, and republished in a second edition in 1850. The novel follows Agnes Grey, a governess, as she works within families of the English gentry. Scholarship and comments by Anne's sister Charlotte Brontë suggest the novel is largely based on Anne Brontë's own experiences as a governess for five years. Like her sister Charlotte's novel Jane Eyre, it addresses what the precarious position of governess entailed and how it affected a young woman. The choice of central character allows Anne to deal with issues of oppression and abuse of women and governesses, isolation and ideas of empathy. An additional theme is the fair treatment of animals. Agnes Grey also mimics some of the stylistic approaches of bildungsromans, employing ideas of personal growth and coming to age, but representing a character who in fact does not gain in virtue. The Irish novelist George Moore praised Agnes Grey as "the most perfect prose narrative in English letters," and went so far as to compare Anne's prose to that of Jane Austen. Modern critics have made more subdued claims admiring Agnes Grey with a less overt praise of Brontë's work than Moore. Agnes Grey is the daughter of Mr. Grey, a minister of modest means, and Mrs. Grey, a woman who left her wealthy family and married purely out of love. Mr. Grey tries to increase the family's financial standing, but the merchant he entrusts his money to dies in a wreck, and the lost investment plunges the family into debt.

Book Short Summary:

This carefully crafted ebook: “Jane Eyre + Wuthering Heights (2 Unabridged Classics)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Charlotte Brontë's most beloved novel describes the passionate love between the courageous orphan Jane Eyre and the brilliant, brooding, and domineering Rochester. The loneliness and cruelty of Jane's childhood strengthens her natural independence and spirit, which prove invaluable when she takes a position as a governess at Thornfield Hall. But after she falls in love with her sardonic employer, her discovery of his terrible secret forces her to make a heart-wrenching choice. Ever since its publication in 1847, Jane Eyre has enthralled every kind of reader, from the most critical and cultivated to the youngest and most unabashedly romantic. It lives as one of the great triumphs of storytelling and as a moving and unforgettable portrayal of a woman's quest for self-respect. Born into a poor family and raised by an oppressive aunt, young Jane Eyre becomes the governess at Thornfield Manor to escape the confines of her life. There her fiery independence clashes with the brooding and mysterious nature of her employer, Mr. Rochester. But what begins as outright loathing slowly evolves into a passionate romance. When a terrible secret from Rochester's past threatens to tear the two apart, Jane must make an impossible choice: Should she follow her heart or walk away and lose her love forever? Considered by many to be Charlotte Brontë’s masterpiece, Jane Eyre chronicles the passionate love between the independent and strong-willed orphan Jane Eyre and the dark, impassioned Mr. Rochester. Having endured a lonely and cruel childhood, orphan Jane Eyre, who is reared in the home of her heartless aunt prior to attending a boarding school with an equally torturous regime, is strengthened by these experiences. The natural independence and unbroken spirit she emerges with allows her to thrive as a governess at Thornfield Hall. It is only after she falls in love with her employer and discovers his explosive secret that she is forced to return to the poverty and isolation of her past. Wuthering Heights is the only published novel by Emily Brontë, written between October 1845 and June 1846 and published in July of the following year. It was not printed until December 1847 under the pseudonym Ellis Bell, after the success of her sister Charlotte Brontë's novel Jane Eyre. A posthumous second edition was edited by Charlotte in 1850. It is one of the world's greatest tales of unrequited love, captivating readers with its intense passion and drama. A classic novel of consuming passions, played out against the lonely moors of northern England, recounts the turbulent and tempestuous love story. The title of the novel comes from the Yorkshire manor on the moors of the story. The narrative centres on the all-encompassing, passionate, but ultimately doomed love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, and how this unresolved passion eventually destroys them and the people around them.

Book Short Summary:

Cathy Earnshaw or Jane Eyre? Petrova or Posy? Scarlett or Melanie? Lace or Valley of the Dolls? On a pilgrimage to Wuthering Heights, Samantha Ellis found herself arguing with her best friend about which heroine was best: Jane Eyre or Cathy Earnshaw. She was all for wild, passionate Cathy; but her friend found Cathy silly, a snob, while courageous Jane makes her own way. And that’s when Samantha realised that all her life she’d been trying to be Cathy when she should have been trying to be Jane. So she decided to look again at her heroines – the girls, women, books that had shaped her ideas of the world and how to live. Some of them stood up to the scrutiny (she will always love Lizzy Bennet); some of them most decidedly did not (turns out Katy Carr from What Katy Did isn’t a carefree rebel, she’s a drip). There were revelations (the real heroine of Gone with the Wind? It's Melanie), joyous reunions (Anne of Green Gables), poignant memories (Sylvia Plath) and tearful goodbyes (Lucy Honeychurch). And then there was Jilly Cooper... How To Be A Heroine is Samantha’s funny, touching, inspiring exploration of the role of heroines, and our favourite books, in all our lives – and how they change over time, for better or worse, just as we do.

Book Short Summary:

This new essay collection brings together some of the top Brontë scholars working today, as well as new critical voices, to examine the many layers of Anne Brontë's fiction and other writings and to restore Brontë to her rightful place in literary history. Until very recently, Brontë's literary fate has been to live in the critical shadow of her older sisters, Charlotte and Emily, in spite of the fact that her two published novels, Agnes Grey and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall were widely read and discussed during her lifetime. From a variety of fields-including psychology, religion, social criticism and literary tradition-the contributors to New Approaches to the Literary Art of Anne Brontë re-assess her works as those of an artist, which demand the rigorous scholarship and attention that they receive here.

Book Short Summary:

아그네스 그레이(Agnes Grey by Anne Brontë)(1847)는 앤 브론테(Anne Brontë)의 ‘첫 번째 소설’로 1847년 액톤 벨(Acton Bell)이란 남성스러운 가명으로 출간되었습니다. 그녀가 어린 나이에 숨을 거둔 후(1849) 언니 샬럿 브론테(Charlotte Brontë)는 자신이 사망(1855)할 때까지 앤 작품의 출판을 금지했는데, 이는 현재까지도 수많은 독자들의 궁금증을 자아내는 ‘문학계의 미스터리’ 중 하나입니다. 작가 앤 브론테는 5년간 가정교사로 근무한 경험을 바탕으로 목사 그레이(Mr. Grey)의 딸 아그네스 그레이(Agnes Grey)가 가문의 빚을 갚기 위해 블름필드 가(Bloomfield family), 머레이 가(the Murrays) 등에서 가정교사직을 전전하며 겪는 이야기를 담담하게 풀어냈습니다. 권한은 많지 않으면서도 아이들에 대한 무한책임을 져야하는 19세기 여성 가정교사의 험난한 상황을 생생하게 그려, 당대 독자들의 사랑을 받았습니다. 번외적으로 브론테 자매(The Brontë Sisters)의 대표작 – 제인 에어(Jane Eyre), 폭풍의 언덕(Wuthering Heights), 아그네스 그레이(Agnes Grey by Anne Brontë)는 모두 ‘1847년’ 출간되었으니, 1847년을 영미문학계 ‘브론테 자매의 해’라고 불러도 과언이 아닐 것입니다. 테마여행신문 TTN Korea 영어고전(English Classics)과 함께 어제도, 오늘도, 내일도 멋진 문학여행을! B All true histories contain instruction; though, in some, the treasure may be hard to find, and when found, so trivial in quantity, that the dry, shrivelled kernel scarcely compensates for the trouble of cracking the nut. Whether this be the case with my history or not, I am hardly competent to judge. I sometimes think it might prove useful to some, and entertaining to others; but the world may judge for itself. Shielded by my own obscurity, and by the lapse of years, and a few fictitious names, I do not fear to venture; and will candidly lay before the public what I would not disclose to the most intimate friend. CHAPTER I. THE PARSONAGE. 모든 참된 역사에는 가르침이 포함되어 있습니다; 하지만 어떤 곳에서는 보물을 찾기가 어려울 수 있고, 발견되었을 때, 양이 너무 적어서 건조하고 쪼글쪼글한 알맹이가 견과류를 깨는 어려움을 거의 보상하지 못합니다. 제 이력이 이렇든 아니든 저는 판단할 능력이 거의 없습니다. 저는 가끔 그것이 어떤 사람들에게는 유용하고 다른 사람들에게는 즐거울 수도 있다고 생각합니다; 하지만 세상은 스스로 판단할 수도 있습니다. 저의 무명, 세월의 경과, 그리고 몇 년간의 가명으로 인해 저는 모험을 두려워하지 않습니다. 그리고 가장 친한 친구에게 공개하지 않을 것을 솔직하게 대중 앞에 드러낼 것입니다. 제1장 파소나지(CHAPTER I. THE PARSONAGE). As I had now only one regular pupil—though she contrived to give me as much trouble as three or four ordinary ones, and though her sister still took lessons in German and drawing—I had considerably more time at my own disposal than I had ever been blessed with before, since I had taken upon me the governess’s yoke; which time I devoted partly to correspondence with my friends, partly to reading, study, and the practice of music, singing, &c., partly to wandering in the grounds or adjacent fields, with my pupils if they wanted me, alone if they did not. CHAPTER XI. THE COTTAGERS. 지금은 정규 학생이 한 명뿐이기 때문에, 그녀는 평범한 학생 서너 명만큼 나에게 문제를 일으키려고 애썼고, 그녀의 여동생은 여전히 독일어와 그림 수업을 받았지만, 나는 그 어느 때보다 내 마음대로 할 수 있는 시간이 훨씬 더 많았습니다. 내가 여교사의 멍에를 짊어진 이후로 이전에 축복을 받았습니다. 그 시간에 나는 부분적으로 친구들과 통신하는 데, 부분적으로는 독서, 공부, 음악 연습, 노래 연습에, 부분적으로는 운동장이나 인접한 들판을 떠돌아다니는 데 바쳤고, 학생들이 원하면 학생들과 함께, 그렇지 않다면 혼자였습니다. 제11장 코타거스(THE COTTAGERS). Next Sunday was one of the gloomiest of April days—a day of thick, dark clouds, and heavy showers. None of the Murrays were disposed to attend church in the afternoon, excepting Rosalie: she was bent upon going as usual; so she ordered the carriage, and I went with her: nothing loth, of course, for at church I might look without fear of scorn or censure upon a form and face more pleasing to me than the most beautiful of God’s creations; I might listen without disturbance to a voice more charming than the sweetest music to my ears; I might seem to hold communion with that soul in which I felt so deeply interested, and imbibe its purest thoughts and holiest aspirations, with no alloy to such felicity except the secret reproaches of my conscience, which would too often whisper that I was deceiving my own self, and mocking God with the service of a heart more bent upon the creature than the Creator. CHAPTER XVI. THE SUBSTITUTION. 다음 주 일요일은 4월 중 가장 우울한 날 중 하나였습니다. 짙고 먹구름과 심한 소나기가 내리는 날이었죠. 로잘리(Rosalie)를 제외하고는 오후에 교회에 갈 마음이 없었습니다. 그래서 그녀는 평소처럼 마차를 주문했고, 저는 그녀와 함께 갔습니다. 물론, 교회에서 저는 경멸이나 비난의 두려움 없이 바라보았고, 가장 아름다운 창조물들 중 가장 아름다운 것 보다 저를 더 기쁘게 볼 수 있었습니다. 내 귀에 가장 달콤한 음악보다 더 매력적인 목소리에 방해 없이 귀를 기울입니다; 나는 내가 매우 깊이 흥미를 느꼈던 그 영혼과 교감을 유지하고, 그것의 순수한 생각과 가장 신성한 열망을, 그러한 행복에 합금하지 않고, 나의 양심의 은밀한 비난이 없다면, 너무 자주 내가 나빴다고 속삭일 것입니다. 창조주보다 피조물에게 더 마음이 기울어진 마음으로 하나님을 조롱합니다. 제16장. 대체품(THE SUBSTITUTION). Our children, Edward, Agnes, and little Mary, promise well; their education, for the time being, is chiefly committed to me; and they shall want no good thing that a mother’s care can give. Our modest income is amply sufficient for our requirements: and by practising the economy we learnt in harder times, and never attempting to imitate our richer neighbours, we manage not only to enjoy comfort and contentment ourselves, but to have every year something to lay by for our children, and something to give to those who need it. And now I think I have said sufficient. CHAPTER XXV. CONCLUSION. 우리 아이들인 에드워드(Edward), 아그네스(Agnes), 어린 메리(Mary)는 잘 약속합니다. 당분간 그들의 교육은 주로 나에게 맡겨집니다. 그리고 그들은 어머니의 보살핌이 줄 수 있는 좋은 것을 원하지 않을 것입니다. 우리의 적당한 수입은 우리의 요구 사항을 충족하기에 충분합니다. 우리가 어려운 시기에 배운 경제를 실천하고 더 부유한 이웃을 결코 모방하려고 시도하지 않음으로써 우리는 스스로 위안과 만족을 누릴 뿐만 아니라 매년 부양할 것을 갖게 됩니다. 우리 아이들을 위해, 그리고 그것을 필요로 하는 사람들에게 줄 무언가. 그리고 지금 나는 충분히 말했다고 생각합니다. 제25장 결론(CONCLUSION). -목차(Index)- 프롤로그(Prologue). 테마여행신문 TTN Korea 영어고전(English Classics) 999선을 읽어야 하는 7가지 이유 조명화 편집장의 15가지 키워드로 읽는 브론테 자매(The Brontë Sisters) 01. 세계 문학사의 브론테 자매(The Brontë Sisters) 02. 오 프론타이(Ó Pronntaigh), 브런티(Brunty), 브론테(Brontë) 03. 하워쓰(Haworth) 브론테 파소니치 박물관(Bronte Parsonage Museum) 04. 커러, 엘리스, 액턴 벨의 시집(Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell)(1846) 05. 샬롯 브론테의 제인 에어(Jane Eyre : An Autobiography by Charlotte Brontë)(1847) 06. 에밀리 브론테의 폭풍의 언덕(Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë)(1847) 07. 폭풍의 언덕(Wuthering Heights)(1847) 히스클리프(Heathcliff)는 실존 인물?! 08. 앤 브론테(Anne Brontë)의 아그네스 그레이(Agnes Grey)(1847) 09. 영국의 족내혼(族內婚) 10. 서머싯 몸의 세계 10대 소설(The World's Ten Greatest Novels by W.

Book Short Summary:

Scholar Mr Peacocke has recently moved to Broughtonshire to live as schoolmaster with his beautiful American wife. When the brother of Mrs Peacocke’s abusive first husband appears at the school with a secret to reveal, scandal and gossip envelope the respectable parish of Bowick. Mr Peacocke, aided by the trusting Dr. Wortle, must defend his reputation and uncover the truth once and for all. Anthony Trollope’s fortieth novel, ‘Dr. Wortle’s School’ deals with a variety of themes; from marriage and bigamy to trust and friendship, in this gripping exploration of 19th century morality. Anthony Trollope (1815 – 1882) was a Victorian writer and author of 47 novels. He also wrote an autobiography, short stories and plays, travel articles, reviews and lectures. A prolific writer, he made no secret of the fact that money was his motivation for writing – an admission which raised eyebrows among his literary contemporaries at the time. The amount of works Trollope authored are testament to his belief in hard work. His first successful novel was The Warden followed by its sequel, Barchester Towers. The Chronicles of Barsetshire are perhaps his most well-known series of novels, though many of his works have been adapted for TV and radio, starring many familiar faces such as Alan Rickman, David Tennant, Bill Nighy and Tom Hollander. Alongside his literary career, Trollope also worked for some time for the Post Office and is credited with the introduction of the iconic post box to Britain. A memorial to Anthony Trollope was unveiled in Poets’ Corner in Westminster Abbey in 1993.

Book Short Summary:

'"Curiouser and curiouser!" cried Alice (she was so surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English). "Now I'm opening out like the largest telescope that ever was! Goodbye, feet!"' 'I had sent my heroine straight down a rabbit-hole ... without the least idea what was to happen afterwards,' wrote Lewis Carroll, describing how Alice was conjured up one 'golden afternoon' in 1862 to entertain his child-friend Alice Liddell. His dream worlds of nonsensical Wonderland and the back-to-front Looking Glass kingdom depict order turned upside-down: a baby turns into a pig, time is abandoned at a disorderly tea-party and a chaotic game of chess makes a seven-year-old girl a Queen. But amongst the anarchic humour and sparkling word play, puzzles and riddles, are poignant moments of nostalgia for lost childhood.

Hailed as one of the Great American Novels, The Great Gatsby delves into the dark corners of the Jazz Age to tell a tragic tale of obsession, love, and the gritty underbelly of the American Dream. Through the eyes of unassuming narrator Nick Carraway, the story follows the enigmatic Jay Gatsby as he chases the object of his hopeless desire, the beautiful Daisy Buchanan. Years after first meeting Daisy, when he was merely a penniless soldier, Gatsby has remade himself into an eccentric millionaire, throwing lavish parties at his New York mansion every weekend with the hope of enticing the woman of his dreams into his reach. It is through these parties that Nick, Daisy’s cousin, first meets Gatsby and learns of his deep, unrelenting love. When at last Gatsby and the now-married Daisy reunite, the consequences of their illicit affair will reverberate through the lives of everyone around them. An illuminating exploration of the deleterious effects of unrequited love, social stigmas, and unchecked capitalism, The Great Gatsby is an elegant yet unforgiving novel that will keep you hooked until the very last page.

Book Short Summary:

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 Brontë 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 1840s 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 Brontë as the heroine of her own story, one as dramatic and triumphant as one of her own novels.

Book Short Summary:

Jacques Derrida has argued about the difference between literature and theory that despite its institutional status, part of its 'institution' is the right of literature to say anything. Literature cannot be defined as such, and as soon as one seeks to produce a reading of the literary, complications arise. Yet despite its institutional significance, 'theory' remains something many wish would go away; and which, for others, is still not read, is misread, and remains to be read. Like literature, it remains as an enigmatic identity, resistant to definition, but subject to misperceptions and open to general statements that are more or less inaccurate. By examining how 'theory' and 'literature' are concepts and names which touch on one other in complex ways, Julian Wolfreys seeks to understand their intersections and differences. Examining a wide range of authors, from Dickens to Joyce, and engaging directly with a number of major theorists, Wolfreys takes the reader on a journey through the issues and ideas involved in reading literature, in theory.

Book Short Summary:

Although the Brontës have long fascinated readers of fiction and biography, their poetry was all too little known until this pioneering selection by Stevie Davies, the novelist and critic. Charlotte (1816-1855) is certainly a competent poet, and Anne (1820-1849) developed a distinctive voice, while Emily (1818-1848) is one of the great women poets in English. Read together with their novels, the poems movingly elucidate the ideas around which the narratives revolve. And they surprise us out of our conventional notions of the sisters' personalities: Emily's rebelliousness, for example, is counterbalanced here by great tenderness. This selection of over seventy poems gives an idea of the variety of thought and feeling within each author's work, and of the way in which the poems of these three remarkable writers parallel and reflect each other.

Book Short Summary:

From the claustrophobic environment of Haworth Parsonage emerged an astonishing range and diversity of character and talent. Between them the two youngest Brontë sisters wrote three novels, each sharply individual in style, purpose and subject-matter. The title, first published in 1968, discusses and illustrates the similarities and differences in the writings of Emily and Anne Brontë, paying particular attention to their place in the development of the Victorian novel. He stresses the complexities of structure and characterisation in Wuthering Heights, introducing the reader first to the background of the novel. This book will be of interest to students of English Literature.

Book Short Summary:

In this “captivating saga” of the post-Reconstruction era, a black female journalist blazes her own trail—“unforgettable; gripping; an instant classic” (Elle). Ivoe Williams, the precocious daughter of a Muslim cook and a metalsmith from central-east Texas, discovers a lifelong obsession with journalism when she steals a newspaper from her mother’s white employer. Living in the segregated quarter of Little Tunis, Ivoe immerses herself in the printed word until she earns a scholarship to the prestigious Willetson Collegiate in Austin. Finally fleeing the Jim Crow South to settle in Kansas City, Ivoe and Ona, her former teacher and present lover, start the first female-run African American newspaper, Jam On the Vine. In the throes of the Red Summer—the 1919 outbreak of lynchings and race riots across the Midwest—Ivoe risks her freedom and her life to call attention to the atrocities of the American prison system. Inspired by the legacy of trailblazing black women like Ida B. Wells and Charlotta Bass, LaShonda Katrice Barnett’s Jam On the Vine is both an epic vision of the hardships that defined an era and “an ode to activism, writ[ten] with a scholar’s eye and a poet’s soul” (Tayari Jones, O The Oprah Magazine).
