The Bront sisters may have had short lives, but their literary legacy lives on. More than 150 years after their deaths, Emily's Wuthering Heights and Charlotte's Jane Eyre remain two of the most popular love stories written in English. Twenty-first-century readers also continue to be engaged by such issues as the vulnerability of children, the role of education in civilizing members of society, and women's independence. In A Student's Guide to the Bront Sisters, the extraordinary lives and works of Emily, Charlotte, and Anne Bront are examined, offering accessible insight to first-time readers. Book jacket.
