Why Anne Brontë's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is a forgotten gem
Share This Article:
Anne Brontë, born 17th January 1820, is perhaps the least well-known of the Brontë sisters. While, Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre, the renowned novels written by her older sisters, Emily and Charlotte have become household names, Anne’s novels have not quite garnered as much fame. Yet, out of all three sisters, Anne’s writing is the most mature, the most grounded and the most relevant to contemporary life. Anne wrote two novels, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and Agnes Grey, before her tragically premature death at the age of 29. She lives on through the beauty and eloquence of her written word and is cherished by thousands of Brontë followers across the globe.
