New Brontë-related research:
“We shed not a tear for our own”: Vulnerability and Advocacy in Anne Brontë’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
Reilly Fitzpatrick
Journal of Creative Writing
Volume 95, 2020, p. 206

Anne Brönte(sic)’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall challenges gendered social norms in profound ways. Brönte’s protagonist, Helen, leaves her alcoholic and abusive husband to live with her son at Wildfell Hall, supporting the two of them by selling her paintings. The novel’s basic plot thus seems radical in its quiet feminism. The text, however, appeared during an era when society imposed strong confines on the domestic world, especially within marriages.

The analysis is focused on thematic or central ideas of the two novels in terms of comparative literature analysis. The theme itself is referred to revenge as the response towards disappointment because of love betrayal and the failure to achieve justice. Revenge is supposed to the reaction that has reverse impact to one who has made the betrayal and the injustice. Besides that, the similarity of the theme can be traced in the two novels as well as the difference by using comparative literature theory. The method applied in doing the analysis is descriptive qualitative. It is said so because the data analyzed is described by interpretative analysis by describing the existing data.
