Overview

Biographical material on Emily Bronte is scarce. In the past, biographers have taken this as an excuse to portray intuition as fact, creating a confused and inaccurate image of the author who wrote Wuthering Heights. In A Life of Emily Bronte, Edward Chitham rejects wholeheartedly the temptation to validate speculation. He describes his book as an 'investigative biography', delving into Emily's childhood, her relationships with her family, her father's Irish roots, and the influences conveyed by friends and acquaintances. Using material neglected by other biographers, Chitham makes an illuminating and scholarly study of the events and characters that shaped Emily's inspiration; a puzzle that has confounded many and made her, up to this point, an enigmatic and misrepresented figure.
