The Life of Charlotte Brontë by Elizabeth Gaskell (Halcyon Classics)

Written by Elizabeth Gaskell

This Halcyon Classics ebook THE LIFE OF CHARLOTTE BRONTË is the first published biography of the life of the English novelist who wrote JANE EYRE under the pen name Currer Bell.

Brontë (1816-1855) completed and published only three novels during her short career (a fourth, THE PROFESSOR, was published shortly after her death). She died pregnant at age 38, possibly from severe dehydration brought on by morning sickness.

Charlotte Brontë’s sisters, Anne and Emily and brother Patrick were all authors in their own right, producing several classics of English literature including WUTHERING HEIGHTS (Emily Brontë) and AGNES GREY (Anne Brontë).
