Un p re taciturne et fantasque une m re vanescente et r veuse t t disparue une race imaginative v h mente et passionn e tels furent les dons du Destin pour les trois s urs qui allaient devenir comme le dit Virginia Woolf les femmes les plus attirantes du roman anglais Elles taient galement dou es pour tous les arts Elles aspiraient ensemble d s l enfance donner une forme leurs songes Elles v curent unies jusqu la mort concentr es sur elles m mes comme un groupe d exil s dans un presbyt re de campagne perdu sur la lande du Yorkshire Si des trois s urs Bront c est Emily qui poss de au plus haut point l art de donner la vie aux mots l identit de leur triple g nie se r v le par cette violence voix douce qui est le ton m me de la trag die Comme les Parques ou les Charites les Bront sont indissociables C est ainsi qu il faut les d couvrir ou les relire D o la justification de ce volume, In Charlotte Bronte together with her brother Branwell created the imaginary kingdom of Angria about which she was to write prolifically for the next five years The five novelettes in this volume are the last of her Angrian tales Written from the viewpoint of the cynical gossipy Charles Townshend they offer an ironic portrait of the intrigues scandals and passions of an aristocratic i beau monde i With their varied cast of characters the stories provide a fascinating glimpse into the mind and creative processes of the young writer who was to become one of the world s greatest novelists br br, Following the tremendous popular success of i Jane Eyre i which earned her lifelong notoriety as a moral revolutionary Charlotte Bront vowed to write a sweeping social chronicle that focused on something real and unromantic as Monday morning Set in the industrializing England of the Napoleonic wars and Luddite revolts of i Shirley i is the story of two contrasting heroines One is the shy Caroline Helstone who is trapped in the oppressive atmosphere of a Yorkshire rectory and whose bare life symbolizes the plight of single women in the nineteenth century The other is the vivacious Shirley Keeldar who inherits a local estate and whose wealth liberates her from convention br br A work that combines social commentary with the more private preoccupations of i Jane Eyre Shirley i demonstrates the full range of Bront s literary talent i Shirley i is a revolutionary novel wrote Bront biographer Lyndall Gordon i Shirley i follows i Jane Eyre i as a new exemplar but so much a forerunner of the feminist of the later twentieth century that it is hard to believe in her actual existence in She is a theoretic possibility what a woman might be if she combined independence and means of her own with intellect Charlotte Bront imagined a new form of power equal to that of men in a confident young woman whose extraordinary freedom has accustomed her to think for herself Shirley is Bront s most feminist novel, In the very last month before her death at the age of thirty nine at the height of her powers Charlotte Bront set the scene of a new novel called i Emma i A child spiritually oppressed a school run on shallow and mercenary principles a brutish schoolmistress a quiet observer of the injustice and cruelty it contained the same preoccupations which elsewhere had called forth her most passionate and dramatic writing br br Another Lady has now at last fulfilled the promise of that novel Her lively powers of invention have worked the unfolding mystery of Charlotte Bront s two opening chapters into an exciting and poignant story The characters grow in vitality and complexity while remaining true in spirit tone and style to the original conception br br The wanton havoc wrought by Emma in the life of Mrs Chalfont the narrator is not the only proof of her ruthlessness she plays a part too in the sufferings of the abandoned child Martina The affection which grows between Mrs Chalfont and Martina out of their mutual distress illumines this story and Emma herself with her inexplicable motives her incomprehensible anger and her darkness of soul develops into a character of whom Charlotte Bront would have been proud
