Poetry of the Brontes

Though best known for their novels, Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Bronte also wrote remarkable poetry - though they had to use masculine pen names.  Poems by Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell, was published in 1846, and the three sisters paid personally for its publication, their first published work.  The sisters’ poems share the qualities of intelligence, awareness and heartfelt emotion and are a fine introduction to their literary work.
