    Description
    In writing about Charlotte Bronte, whom she greatly admired, but whose novels she did not entirely like, Elizabeth Gaskell portrays the struggle of a woman artist for whom she had, until her late marriage, 'foreseen the single life'. The resulting work - the first full-length biography of a woman novelist by a woman novelist - almost single-handedly created the Bronte myth. As Elisabeth Jay discusses in her introduction to this new edition, Gaskell weaves facts, dates, characters and anecdotes with considerable art; her Charlotte Bronte was 'an imaginative creation and, as such, took on a life of its own'.
    'It is in every way worthy of what one Great Woman, should have written of Another... it ought to stand, and will stand in the first rank, of Biographies, till the end of time' - Patrick Bronte.
