EMILY BRONTË: The Artist as a Free Woman

Emily Bronte - The Artist as a Free Woman

The Artist as a Free Woman

.... is as good as anything done on Emily Brontë in recent years.

Emily Brontë: the Artist as a Free Woman is an extended meditation on the life and work of one of the most original and challenging writers of the nineteenth century and one who remains, despite her enormous popularity, enigmatic and elusive. Stevie Davies sets out to discover in the structure of a uniquely private life the source of a cryptic or riddling art, so as to suggest clues to the mysteries of her work. The book is in three sections: the first biographical, the second considering the poetry, and the third providing a radical re-reading of Wuthering Heights.
