Über das eBook

This unfinished work by Charlotte Brontë contains the poignant story of an abused child. Two chapters of 'The Story of Willie Ellin' has survived. After abandoning the work, Charlotte later incorporated it into another work called 'Emma'. Charlotte Brontë (1816 – 1855), English writer noted for her novel Jane Eyre (1847) and sister of Anne Brontë and Emily Brontë. The three sisters are almost as famous for their short, tragic lives as for their novels. In their works they described love more truthfully that was common in Victorian age England. In the past 40 years Charlotte Brontë's reputation has risen rapidly, and feminist criticism has done much to show that she was speaking up for oppressed women of every age.

Über den Autor

Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855), an English novelist and poet, is widely esteemed as one of the preeminent writers of the 19th century. Born on April 21, 1816, in Thornton, West Yorkshire, England, Charlotte was the third of six children to Maria Branwell Brontë and Patrick Brontë, an Anglican clergyman. Brontë was part of a literary family, with sisters Emily and Anne also celebrated as authors. She spent much of her life at the family's residence, the Haworth Parsonage, which provided a landscape both physically and emotionally influential in her works.

Educated primarily at home by her father, Charlotte also attended the Clergy Daughters' School, experiences which later informed her delineation of the harsh realities of boarding school life in her novels. Her writing is characterized by its intricate portrayal of the psychological and social challenges faced by her characters, particularly women navigating the strictures of Victorian society. Brontë's masterful narrative techniques blend realism with gothic elements, exploring themes such as morality, individual versus society, and the passion within restrained lives, distinguishing her literary style.

Charlotte Brontë published several novels, including 'Jane Eyre' (1847), 'Shirley' (1849), and 'Villette' (1853). While 'The Story of Willie Ellin' is lesser-known and was not one of her published novels, it could be a misattributed or less-documented piece. Brontë's 'Jane Eyre' remains her most celebrated work, often credited with revolutionizing the art of fiction with its intimate first-person narrative and its critique of social class and gender inequality. Charlotte Brontë's profound impact on English literature is recognized to this day, resonating in the themes of contemporary fiction and in the study of the evolution of the novel as a form.
