About the Author

Charlotte Brontë (1816-1855) was an eminent English novelist and poet, who is best known for her novel 'Jane Eyre', which has become a classic of English literature. Born on April 21, 1816, in Thornton, West Yorkshire, Charlotte was the third of six children. With her sisters Emily and Anne, also celebrated authors, Charlotte was part of the literary Brontë family. The Brontë siblings grew up in relative isolation and created intricate imaginary worlds, which were the early foundations of their literary craft. Brontë's work is celebrated for its innovative narrative style, emotional depth, and strong characterisation, especially of female protagonists. Her novels often explored themes of love, passion, women's independence, and the challenges faced by women in Victorian society. In addition to 'Jane Eyre', her notable works include 'Shirley' and 'Villette'. These books, together with 'The Professor', are emblematic of Brontë's sophisticated psychological insight and vivid storytelling. While the presented boxed-set 'Love & Passion Through The Ages' suggests a collection of historical novels, it's essential to clarify that her most famous works were not historical fiction but reflected contemporary issues of her time. Brontë died on March 31, 1855, leaving behind a literary legacy that continues to be celebrated for its progressive social commentary and its unflinching examination of the human condition.
