Selected Letters

Charlotte Brontë
Edited by Margaret Smith and Janet Gezari

Oxford World's Classics

  • Charlotte Brontë is one of the most popular English novelists, and her letters offer a fascinating insight into her life as a writer, her personal life, and the society in which she lived.
  • The only available edition, this selection is derived from Margaret Smith's three-volume edition of Brontë's complete letters and covers her life from her teenage years at Haworth Parsonage to her death in 1855.
  • In addition to Margaret Smith's Editor's Preface, the edition includes a critical introduction by Janet Gezari which looks at the relationship between Brontë's letters and her fiction and how the letters add to the debate about her literary persona and the split between her public and her private life.
  • Includes a chronology, biographical notes on BrontË's correspondents, select bibliography,on-page notes, and index.
