Charlotte Bronteby Mike Edwards
Charlotte Brontë's novels have retained a strong appeal for readers from her own time to the present day. Her rich and subtle writing rewards careful study, revealing a fine balance of comedy, romance, and passion, and touching on contemporary social realities. In this guide, detailed analysis of extracts shows how common-sense approaches can be used to reach into the different layers of meaning in her writing. The author uses Jane Eyre, Shirley, and Villette to explore creatively the unique blend of realism and fantasy underlying the psychological power of the novels of Charlotte Brontë.
