A new beautiful Folio Society edition of Anne Brontë's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall:
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
Anne Brontë
Illustrated by Valentina Catto
Introduced by Tracy Chevalier
Published to mark the 200th anniversary of Anne Brontë’s birth, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall completes the Folio collection of the Brontë sisters’ most distinguished titles.

While her sisters penned wildly passionate novels with heroic protagonists and Gothic undertones, Anne Brontë’s masterwork is firmly rooted in reality. Its frank depiction of marital breakdown and a woman’s forthright and daring response to her situation sent shockwaves through Victorian England, and the novel quickly became a publishing phenomenon. Returning to the unadulterated text of the first printing, this exceptional new edition includes Anne’s heartfelt preface defending her work, as well as an essential new introduction by historical novelist Tracy Chevalier. New illustrations by Valentina Catto blend artistic techniques that perfectly befit the era but also feel contemporary in their execution, drawing readers into the heart of the narrative. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall joins Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights as part of our lavishly designed and illustrated Brontë series.
