A Quick Glance

Emily Jane Brontë, a British novelist and poet, helped modify the classics of English Literature with her first and only novel, Wuthering Heights. Emily was the second eldest of the three surviving Brontë sisters, being younger than Charlotte and older than Anne. She published under the masculine pen name Ellis Bell, as how Charlotte went under Currer and Anne went under Acton, to avoid any female prejudice. As with all the Bronte novels, critics have tried to find a biographical coonection between Emily's life and her tragic novel. Emily has been defined as deeply spiritual, free-spirited and solitary as well as intensely creative and passionate, a symbol of tortured genius.
