- Beautifully produced presentation of a great literary shrine
- Written by acknowledged experts on the Brontë family
This new publication follows one of the great British literary shrines, the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth, home to Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë and their brother Branwell. Here the sisters wrote their remarkable novels, including Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, and the parsonage became a focus of literary tourism even during Charlotte’s lifetime. With an illuminating introduction by Professor Ann Sumner, then Executive Director of The Brontë Society, this beautifully produced book follows a major refurbishment of the parsonage, based on historical research and scientific investigation to produce a historically accurate scheme.
Ann Dinsdale is Principal Curator at Brontë Parsonage Museum. Kathryn White is the former Curator at the Brontë Parsonage Museum.
