I'm filled with admiration for what you've achieved, and particularly for the hard work and the 'cottage industry' aspect of it.

Anne Brontë (1820 - 1849)

Books by this author: Selected Poems
  • About
  • Anne Brontë was the youngest Bronte, and like her siblings was educated at home. Her religious melancholic tendencies are thought to have been influenced by her Aunt Branwell. She was especially close to Emily as a child and they created Gondal, an imaginary world, where many of their dramatic poems were set. She often drew inspiration from her own experiences, this is particularly clear in the novel Anne Grey. Her pseudonym was Acton Bell and a number of poems were published under this name.
