Charlotte Brontë, Building With Patience
Charlotte Brontë, Building With Patience

There is nothing more respectable in the world than a woman capable of building herself with patience and tenacity, day after day, without the support of a husband or a brother.

From a presbytery lost in the English heather, Charlotte Brontë leads a calm and determined fight to affirm the reasons for her literary genius and the extraordinary talent of her sisters. Those who are passionate about the author will find in this correspondence the formation of an intelligence, the adventures of a big heart and the journey of a secretly intense life.

The author

With her novel Jane Eyre, published in 1847 under the male pseudonym Currer Bell, Charlotte Brontë (1816-1855) achieved resounding success at a time when writing was still the preserve of men. In her letters, she recounts, with modesty and humility, in turn enthusiastic and melancholic, outlining her career as a writer, attentive to the destiny of women and defender of their literary vocation.

Strong points

An intaglio portrait of one of the most popular English novelists.

A patient struggle for the recognition of women’s writing.

The pugnacity of a woman determined not to give up her ambitions.
