Overview

The Life of Charlotte Brontë by Elizabeth Gaskell

Intertwining fact and story, The Life of Charlotte Brontë takes the reader by one hand and Charlotte Brontë by the other to run rampant through the making of one of the greatest authoresses of all time. Follow Charlotte from her birthplace of Thornton as she sets off for school and later returns to teach her sisters, and come to know the “characteristic kindness of the Brontës.” This unsentimental biography, written by friend and sometimes critic Elizabeth Gaskell, helped launch Charlotte Brontë’s fame and takes you on a journey to see the making of the author of Jane Eyre.

Her works include the novels Mary Barton (1848), Cranford (1851-53), Ruth (1853), North and South (1854-55), Sylvia's Lovers (1863) and Wives and Daughters: An Everyday Story (1865).

Interesting and informative. I didn't have issues with the scan, just a few minor annoyances. I especially enjoyed the foreword.
