Emily Bronte - Heretic

Emily Bronte Heretic
The Women's Press, London 1994
... impassioned and brilliant study of Emily Brontë...
Times Higher

Stevie Davies explodes the legends of Emily Brontë's 'virginal innocence', unworldliness and 'untutored genius'. Through close and challenging readings of Emily Brontë's poetry and prose, Stevie Davies shows that Wuthering Heights and the poetry are transgressive testaments to the active experience of female sexuality by a woman whose mind was in dialogue with the vital debates of the day. With rare sensitivity, understanding and the novelist's power of prose, Davies builds a haunting and arresting portrait of Emily Brontë's extraordinary life and work.
