About the Event
Panel introducing the works of Anne Brontë from the Juvenilia through the novels and few surviving letters, asking why Anne's work has received less attention and acclaim, and asking, what can we learn about the 'real' Anne Brontë - as an author and a woman - through her writings.
And as Charlotte Brontë tried to distance Anne from her work in the biographical notice written after Anne and Emily's deaths; what has Charlotte's stewardship meant for later understanding and readings of Anne's work?
