Thomas Plant looks into the lives of The Brontës Sisters who were from a 19th century literary family associated with Haworth in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England. Charlotte (1816-1855), Emily (1818-1848), and Anne ( 1820-1849), are well known as a trio of sibling poets and novelists. They originally published their poems and novels under masculine pseudonyms, following the custom of the times practised by female writers. Their stories immediately attracted attention, although not always the best, for their passion and originality. Charlotte's Jane Eyre was the first to know success, while Emily's Wuthering Heights, Anne's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and other works were later to be accepted as masterpieces of literature.
