Emily Bronte

Emily Bronte, who only lived from 1818 to 1848, was the sister of Charlotte and Anne; all three of them wrote famous novels, and all died young. The sisters were educated at home and together created imaginary worlds in which Emily set many stories and poems. Emily was particularly drawn to the stark moorlands around Haworth, which are such a feature of Wuthering Heights, published in 1845. The book was not a critical success at the time, and was only recognised after her death as one of the greatest novels ever written.
