A cargo de Mª José Coperías Aguilar, profesora titular de Filología Inglesa en la Universidad de Valencia
23 de abril, 12.00 h.
Auditorio del Museo del Romanticismo (acceso por c/ Beneficencia, 14)

Charlotte Brontë forma junto con sus hermanas Emily y Anne uno de los fenómenos más extraordinarios dentro de la literatura inglesa, pues no es habitual que tres mujeres de una misma familia consiguieran publicar sus libros y tener éxito. Aunque Charlotte Brontë escribió cuatro novelas, es por Jane Eyre por la que perdura su fama. Con su protagonista creó un nuevo tipo de heroína: menuda y poco agraciada, pero rebelde y apasionada. Con esta conferencia rendimos homenaje, en el día del Libro, a la inmortal figura y obra de Charlotte Brontë, en el doscientos aniversario de su nacimiento.
And this is not a Charlotte event but an Emily one in Manchester:
