The BrontësA Family WritesChristine Nelson
The Brontës of Haworth were a prodigiously imaginative literary family. From the earliest manuscripts of Charlotte, Branwell, Emily and Anne – written with a quill pen in a minuscule hand designed to mimic the printed page – to explosive novels, such as Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre, written in adulthood by Emily and Charlotte, the family’s writings continue to fascinate. This elegantly designed, fully illustrated publication provides an intimate portrait of a singular family of writers through the manuscripts, rare printed books, personal documents, and private letters preserved in the Brontë collection of the Morgan Library & Museum, one of the world’s finest. It accompanies a major exhibition at the Morgan from 9 September 2016 to 2 January 2017.
