      For the Bronte-lover, this single volume is easier to bring down to the beach, on the airplane, or to the ski lodge than three separate books. Featuring the full texts of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, and Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte, these sisters' works provide a singular look at social injustice & gender issues in the context of gothic passion. pages Format: Paperback. The manuscript is dated Novem , when Charlotte was seventeen years old, and the place of writing is given as Verdopolis, the “Great Glass Town” that is the capital of Angria. It is unknown why the Brontë children chose to write their stories in such tiny script, but several suggestions have been made. Directed by Peter Hort. The English Brönte family, originally of Irish descent, produced three 19th century novelists: Charlotte, Emily and Anne. The three grew up in a torrid girls' school with living conditions that led to the death of two elder sisters. The children developed their literary talents in the Yorkshire moors after leaving the Cowan Bridge School.
