The Brontesaurus: An A-Z of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte (and Branwell)

by John Sutherland and John Crace - £9.99  Icon Books Ltd (2016)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781785781438 | ISBN 10: 178578143x

Did Charlotte Brontë take opium? Did the Reverend Brontë carry a loaded pistol? What, precisely, does ‘wuthering’ mean?
 
Distinguished literary critic John Sutherland takes an idiosyncratic look at the world of the Brontës, from the bumps on Charlotte’s head to the nefarious origins of Mr Rochester’s fortune, by way of astral telephony, letter-writing dogs, an exploding peat bog, and much, much more.
 
Also features ‘Jane Eyre abbreviated’ by John Crace, author of the Guardian’s ‘Digested Reads’ column – read Charlotte Brontë’s masterpiece in five minutes!

(Price & availability last checked: November 2016)
