A course beginning today at the Canterbury Christ Church University:
The Brontës: Novels by Three Sisters
Thursday 22 January 2015
Tutor: Geoff Doel
Length: 8 sessions
Time: 1.30pm - 3.30pm
Location: Canterbury Campus

Course description

The Brontë sisters were inspired by their bleak moorland environment, their passionate lineage and their love of Romantic literature inherited from their father Patrick (himself a poet of nature); their very isolation in Haworth bred a mutual intensity.

Despite their limited educational and social opportunities and their relative poverty, the sisters each produced a masterpiece - novels of great intensity, passion and power. We’ll study Emily’s Wuthering Heights , Charlotte’s Jane Eyre and Anne’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall , exploring their literary impact in the mid-nineteenth century and their profound influence since.
