Writers and Their Work

Drawing upon recent literary and critical scholarship, Betty Jay sets out to re-evaluate Brontë's novels. In Jay's re-appraisal of Brontë's work, she also extends her commentary to include close textual readings of a selection of Brontë's poems to show the extent to which the simplicity and sentiment conventionally ascribed to the verse deceive the reader, working to conceal Anne Brontë's more intricate and powerful poetics of subjectivity and loss.
