Read full description of the books:Since I had to buy this version of the book for class and it had all three novels packed in together I'm just going to give a short and sweet review for each.
Jane Eyre - Jane is everything! On my second reading I realized that Mr. Rochester isn't really that romantic, he shows signs of manipulation and his subterfuge with Bertha is the biggest red flag in all of literature. The weirdest part is that I still felt very drawn to Mr. Rochester and still considered him a dream boat and I was warring with my feelings and my brain. The big reveal of Bertha still had my heart beating out of my chest even though I had read the book before and have seen countless versions. Just A++++ always for Jane Eyre.
Wuthering Heights - Also known as time to be depressed. If you ever have doubts about humanity and feel you are a pessimist then this is a book for you. I'm not a fan of Heathcliff, everyone's like oh look at all the things he's gone through you can't blame him. There's a choice you can make in this world to either see the wrong that's been done to you and vow to never do that to others or you can be Heathcliff and try and ruin everyone's life. This is a spooky book, but it's ultimately soul crushing when it comes to humanity and just how terrible everyone is to each other.
Agnes Grey- I wrote a separate review for this because this was the only book in the collection I was reading for the first time and I had a lot of feelings about it. I'm so on board with Agnes, I think that Anne Bronte might be my favorite Bronte now (don't tell Charlotte). In this book you get to analyze the weird role of governesses as more then household staff, but less then family. Also we get to see a bunch of horrible children. And it also brings up the importance of animal studies! How a person treats animals is a gateway into that person's psyche and how they treat others and view their place in the world. Great stuff! You get down with your bad self Agnes Grey! Also Mr. Weston yes please!
Read information about the authorEmily Jane Brontë was a British novelist and poet, now best remembered for her only novel Wuthering Heights, a classic of English literature. Emily was the second eldest of the three surviving Brontë sisters, being younger than Charlotte Brontë and older than Anne Brontë. She published under the masculine pen name Ellis Bell.
Emily was born in Thornton, near Bradford in Yorkshire to Patrick Brontë and Maria Branwell. She was the younger sister of Charlotte Brontë and the fifth of six children. In 1824, the family moved to Haworth, where Emily's father was perpetual curate, and it was in these surroundings that their literary oddities flourished. In childhood, after the death of their mother, the three sisters and their brother Patrick Branwell Brontë created imaginary lands (Angria, Gondal, Gaaldine, Oceania), which were featured in stories they wrote. Little of Emily's work from this period survived, except for poems spoken by characters (The Brontës' Web of Childhood, Fannie Ratchford, 1941).
In 1842, Emily commenced work as a governess at Miss Patchett's Ladies Academy at Law Hill School, near Halifax, leaving after about six months due to homesickness. Later, with her sister Charlotte, she attended a private school in Brussels. They later tried to open up a school at their home, but had no pupils.
It was the discovery of Emily's poetic talent by Charlotte that led her and her sisters, Charlotte and Anne, to publish a joint collection of their poetry in 1846, Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. To evade contemporary prejudice against female writers, the Brontë sisters adopted androgynous first names. All three retained the first letter of their first names: Charlotte became Currer Bell, Anne became Acton Bell, and Emily became Ellis Bell. In 1847, she published her only novel, Wuthering Heights, as two volumes of a three volume set (the last volume being Agnes Grey by her sister Anne). Its innovative structure somewhat puzzled critics. Although it received mixed reviews when it first came out, the book subsequently became an English literary classic. In 1850, Charlotte edited and published Wuthering Heights as a stand-alone novel and under Emily's real name.
Like her sisters, Emily's health had been weakened by the harsh local climate at home and at school. She caught a chill during the funeral of her brother in September, and, having refused all medical help, died on December 19, 1848 of tuberculosis, possibly caught from nursing her brother. She was interred in the Church of St. Michael and All Angels family capsule, Haworth, West Yorkshire, England.
