Emily Brontë Reappraised

Emily Brontë Reappraised

By O Callaghan Claire



Revised edition of this biography with a twist about Emily Brontë, the subject of major 2022 film Emily starring Emma Mackey. Brontë scholar Claire O'Callaghan conjures a new image of Emily Brontë and rehabilitates her reputation by exploring the themes of her life and work. We discover that Emily was a thoroughly modern woman. Emily Brontë occupies a special place in the English literary canon. And rightly so: the incomparable Wuthering Heights is a novel that has bewitched us for almost 200 years, and the character of Heathcliff is, perhaps, the ultimate romantic hero-and villain. But Emily herself remains an enigmatic figure, often portrayed as awkward, as a misanthrope, as no normal being. That's the conventional wisdom on Emily as a person, but is it accurate? Is it fair? It's time for the real Emily Brontë to please stand up.
