Or do we? These stereotypes of the popular imagination are precisely that--imaginary--created by amateur biographers like Elizabeth Gaskell who were primarily novelists and were attracted by the tale of an apparently doomed family of genius. Juliet Barkers landmark book is the first definitive history of the Brontes. It demolishes the myths, yet provides startling new information that is just as compelling--but true.

Based on firsthand research among all the Bronte manuscripts and among contemporary historical documents never before used by Bronte biographers, this book is both scholarly and compulsively readable. The Brontes is a revolutionary picture of the worlds favorite literary family.
