    1 thought on “Emily Brontë

    1. Si la figura de Emily, al igual que la de todos los miembros Brontë, han sido reiterado e insistente objetivo desde que recuerdo, de mi más ferviente interés, admiración y sobre todo fascinación, esta biografía tan maravillosa de Winifred Gérin ha multiplicado infinitamente ese deslumbramiento y mi respeto, reconocimiento y aprecio por la misteriosa Emily Brontë como poeta, escritora y ser humano.Necesito ahora, encarecidamente, el resto de biografías galardonadas escritas por Winifred [...]

    2. While "The Dark Quartet" may be a more entertaining read on the life of the Brontes, this biography provides an exceptionally thorough and intriguing discussion on the most reclusive (and BRILLIANT) of the foursome. Emily Bronte was,without question, the GREATEST writer the world has ever seen - and will ever see! Gerin does an admirable job in exploring both the mundane and the mystical experiences and influences that led to the creation of the Gondal saga, the poetry - and, of course, that TOW [...]

    3. Way too anxiety provoking for me to read. I stopped when Maddy is accused of not helping out with the fire. I knew then I wouldn't be able to read the rest without being anxious.

    4. This is my first Bronte biography by Winifred Gerin, who apparently wrote a separate biography for all of them (next up: Charlotte). It's a short book yet more full of speculation than facts, which is sort of the problem with Emily's life: there is so much we don't know that you can basically make it up -- and indeed almost have to. The book quotes from the poetry a lot (which I liked) and argues that Emily was a mystic who at some point toward the end of her life stopped hearing her mystical vo [...]

    5. Engaging biography spoiled in last pages by rampant speculative psycho-analysis of the cause of Bronte's death (she claimed it was psychosomatic and Bronte wanted death!) I also found myself becoming increasingly sceptical at the idea Bronte was a 'mystic'. I think the context of widespread Victorian Protestantism and religion at the time has to be considered when assessing how the Brontes wrote about 'spiritual' matters, and the romanticising of Emily as a 'mystic' is problematic anyway. It's a [...]

    6. Just great, really! I am a big admirer of the Brontës and of Emily in particular and have read other biographies about her and the family before. Gérin's appears not only excellently researched but written in an engaging and emotionally captivating manner. It took me quite a while to read the whole book but then this was more for want of studying it at my own pace rather than racing through it to have it finished. If you are interested in Emily Brontë's life then I suggest this is a must-read [...]

    7. This is a very sympathetic work that gave me a sense of Emily Bronte's greatness and oddness, both as a person and in terms of her writing. Her's is an heroic, tragic story, carefully and thoroughly told by Winifred Gerin.
