The Bronte Sisters - Selected Poems edited by Stevie Davies

Selected Poems
Carcanet, Cheadle Hulme 1976 

All three sisters, as Stevie Davies remarks in her introduction, were Romantic in inspiration, writing poetry of passionate personal feeling and of pure imagination. They share certain themes: liberty, loneliness, love, and harbour the myth of a lost paradise. Read together with their novels, the poems movingly elucidate the ideas which the narratives revolve. And they surprise us out of our conventional notions of the sisters' personalities, for example Emily's rebelliousness being counterbalanced here by great tenderness. 

This selection gives an idea of the variety of thought and feeling within each author's work, and of the way in which the poems of these three remarkable writers parallel and reflect each other.
