Jessica Cox's superb and meticulously researched biography provides a fascinating new interpretation both of Bronte's celebrated works and of her personal life, notably her - often intense - relationships with those around her. The result is a beautifully drawn portrait of the creator of some of the world's most remarkable novels, which marvellously augments the Hesperus collection of her writings.
Jessica Cox is a lecturer in post-1800 English literature at the University of Wales, Lampeter. She has written and published widely on the Bronte's, Mary Elizabeth Braddon and Wilkie Collins, and is the editor of a critical edition of Charlotte Bronte's Shirley (2006).
