Sobre l'autor

Anne Bronte was the daughter of an impoverished clergyman of Haworth in Yorkshire, England. Considered by many critics as the least talented of the Bronte sisters, Anne wrote two novels. Agnes Grey (1847) is the story of a governess, and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848), is a tale of the evils of mostra'n més drink and profligacy. Her acquaintance with the sin and wickedness shown in her novels was so astounding that Charlotte Bronte saw fit to explain in a preface that the source of her sister's knowledge of evil was their brother Branwell's dissolute ways. A habitue of drink and drugs, he finally became an addict. Anne Bronte's other notable work is her Complete Poems. Anne Bronte died in 1849. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

Biografia breu
Anne was the youngest of the Brontë siblings. She worked as a governess and wrote stories and poetry with her sisters. Her literary reputation is based mainly on the two novels she published before her untimely death at age 29. Like her older sisters, she used a masculine-sounding pseudonym, Acton Bell, for publication of her writing because of 19th-century prejudice against female authors.

My daughter and I read this together as a "book project"- we are catching up on the books we've been meaning to read. I liked it more than I expected. It is considered one of the first feminist books. I can see that. It is a bit melodramatic, although perhaps not as much as the works of her sisters, such as Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. It does give an interesting perspective on well-to-do English gentlemen who do not have any purpose but to drink, hunt, and gamble!
"You would have us encourage our sons to prove all things by their own experience, while our daughters must not even profit by the experience of others."

Reason read: TBR takedown/Reading 1001, April 2024.
Finally! This book has been on my TBR forever. I enjoyed it! A tale of a young woman who marries against all advice because she believes she can change someone. This book may be old but it is still very relevant. What is old is the options that were or were not available. The dignity and "manners" that no longer exist.
It is told over a long period of time and includes the use of diaries to provide background. A book that was probably ahead of its time.… (més)

If she were anyone else, Ann Bronte would be highly admired, but she is relegated to being Charlotte and Emily's sister. While I admire Emily's artistry more, I walk away more satisfied from Tenant then from Wurthering. A realistic early depiction of alcoholism and abusive relationships that was well ahead of it's time

A decent read, but awfully predictable. The "romance" between Agnes and Mr. Weston wasn't exactly sizzling, but it was sweet.
