Anne Brontë könyvei a rukkolán


Anne Brontë - The ​Tenant of Wildfell Hall
The ​Tenant of Wildfell Hall is one of few nineteenth-century novels to address alcoholism, psychological abuse, violence and the inequality of women's property rights. In a powerful psychological narrative, Anne Brontë tells the strange tale of the disintegration of the marriage of Helen Graham, the mysterious tenant of Wildfell Hall. When it was first published in 1848, Anne Brontë's second novel was attacked by the Spectator for its 'morbid love of the coarse, if not the brutal'. In her defence, Anne stated that she 'wished to tell the truth, for truth always conveys its own moral to those who are able to receive it'. Anne's own sister Charlotte considered the novel 'an entire mistake', and after Anne's death in 1849 she suppressed any further editions, wishing to protect her reputation from accusations of immorality. Anne Brontë challenges the reader, proving that she is a novelist in her own right and not just of interest as the youngest sister of the better known authors Charlotte and Emily.

Anne Brontë - Agnes ​Grey
Agnes ​Grey egy észak-angliai lelkészcsaládban, egyszerű, de szerető környezetben nő fel, ahol a szellemi és lelki értékek mindig fontosabbak az anyagiaknál. A féltve dédelgetett legkisebb lány, hogy segítse a szüleit, nevelőnőnek szegődik gazdagabb családokhoz, hogy az otthon megtanult elvekre nevelje a rábízott gyerekeket. Miközben keserű leckéket kap "az oktatás művészetében", érett, önálló személyiséggé csiszolódik, aki egyre inkább képessé válik arra, hogy a maga kezébe vegye sorsát... - Anne Brontë önéletrajzi ihletésű regényében feltárul a 19. század derekának Angliája, ahol a régi minták és korlátok még fennállnak ugyan, de az emberek már új eszmények felé fordulva siettetik a változás eljövetelét. A méltán híres mű szerzője erről a változó korról és egy bátor, hétköznapian küzdelmes sorsról mesél őszinte érzékenységgel.

Anne Brontë - Agnes ​Grey (angol)
When ​her family becomes impoverished after a disastrous financial speculation, Agnes Grey determines to find work as a governess in order to contribute to their meagre income and assert her independence. But Agnes' enthusiasm is swiftly extinguished as she struggles first with the unmanageable Bloomfield children and then with the painful disdain of the haughty Murray family; the only kindness she receives comes from Mr Weston, the sober young curate. Drawing on her own experience, Anne Bronte's first novel offers a compelling personal perspective on the desperate position of unmarried, educated women for whom becoming a governess was the only respectable career open in Victorian society.

Anne Brontë - Wildfell ​asszonya
"... ​megpillantottam egy feketébe öltözött, magas, előkelő nőalakot. Arcán olyasmi tükröződött, ami, ha egyszer látta az ember, arra késztette, hogy ismét szemügyre vegye. Haja hollófekete volt, hosszú, fényes csigákba fésülve... arcbőre tiszta és sápadt; hosszú, fekete pillái elfedték szemét, szépen kirajzolt szemöldöke azonban kifejező volt; boltozatos homloka értelemre valló, orra tökéletes sasorr, arcvonásai hibátlanok - csak az orcája és a szeme volt kissé beesett, ajka pedig, noha szép vonalú, kissé keskeny, szorosra zárt, ami, úgy véltem, nem vall nagyon engedékeny vagy nyájas kedélyre..." - ilyennek ismeri meg a wildfelli kastély titokzatos úrnőjét az ifjú és kissé komolytalan kisbirtokos, Gilbert Markham. Anne Bronte, híres nővéreinek, Charlotte-nak és Emilynek legfiatalabb testvére, a szinte kötelező "guvernant"-regény, az Agnes Grey (1846) után írta meg főművét, a Wildfell asszonyá-t (1849). Anne Bronte is a korabeli szegény papkisasszonyok szokásos útját járta: nevelőnősködött módos családok csemetéi mellett. És - akárcsak nővérei - ő is írt, verseket, regényeket, míg fiatalon, huszonkilenc évesen el nem vitte őt is a Bronte család ősi ellensége: a tüdővész. Sok fényt, boldogságot nem ismert - nagy regénye lapjain mégis meg-megcsillan a korát meghazudtoló bölcsességből fakadó, mindent megbocsátó szívbéli derű. A kerettörténetet elbeszélő Gilbert könnyed életfelfogású ifjúból a szemünk láttára válik érett férfivá - a könyv zömét pedig Helennek, a környéken sok szóbeszédet keltő, magányos, gyönyörű, fekete ruhás asszonynak a naplója teszi ki.

Patrick Branwell Brontë - Anne Brontë - Emily Brontë - Charlotte Brontë - Tales ​of Glass Town, Angria, and Gondal
In ​their collaborative early writings, the Brontes created and peopled the most extraordinary fantasy worlds, whose geography and history they elaborated in numerous stories, poems, and plays. Together they invented characters based on heroes and writers such as Wellington, Napoleon, Scott, and Byron, whose feuds, alliances, and love affairs weave an intricate web of social and political intrigue in imaginary colonial lands in Africa and the Pacific Ocean. The writings of Glass Town, Angria, and Gondal are youthful experiments in imitation and parody, wild romance and realistic recording--a playful literary world that they would draw upon for their early and later work. In this generous selection, the early writings of the Bronte's are presented together for the first time. Christine Alexander's Introduction explores the rich imaginative lives of the Brontes, and the tension between their maturing authorship and creative freedom. The edition includes Charlotte Bronte's Roe Head Journal, and Emily and Anne's Diary Papers. The edition also has a key to characters and place, detailed notes, and a map of Glass Town and Angria.

Charlotte Brontë - Emily Brontë - Anne Brontë - Selected ​Works of the Brontë Sisters
_Jane ​Eyre_ ranks as one of the greatest and most popular works of English fiction. Although Charlotte Brontë's heroine is outwardly plain, she possesses an indomitable spirit, and great courage. Forced to battle against the exigencies of a cruel guardian, a harsh employer and a rigid social order which circumscribes her life when she becomes governess to the daughter of the mysterious, sardonic Mr Rochester. _Villette_ is based on Charlotte Brontë's personal experience as a teacher in Brussels. It is a moving tale of repressed feelings and cruel circumstances borne with heroic fortitude. Rising above the confinement of a rigid social order, it is also a story of a woman's right to love and be loved. _Wuthering Heights_ is Emily Brontë's wild, passionate tale of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father. After Mr Earnshaw's death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine's brother Hindley and, wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, he leaves Wuthering heights. When he returns years later as a wealthy man, he proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries. _Agnes Grey_, Ann Brontë's deeply personal novel, is a trenchant expose of the frequently isolated, intellectually stagnant and emotionally starved conditions under which many governesses worked in the mid-nineteenth century. _The Tenant of Wildfell Hall_ shows Ann Brontë's bold, naturalistic and passionate style. It is a powerful and sometimes violent novel of expectation, love, oppression, sin and betrayal. It portrays the disintegration of the marriage of Helen Huntingdon, the mysterious 'tenant' of the title, and her dissolute, alcoholic husband.
