[Bronte, Charlotte] Gaskell, Elizabeth Cleghorn. The Life of Charlotte Bronte, author of "Jane Eyre", "Shirley", "Villette" &c. Two Volumes complete in One. New York, D.Appleton and Company, 1868. ; fester Einband / hard cover
Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell, nee Stevenson (29 September 1810 - 12 November 1865), often referred to simply as Mrs Gaskell, was a British novelist and short story writer during the Victorian era. Her novels offer a detailed portrait of the lives of many strata of society, including the very poor, and are of interest to social historians as well as lovers of literature. The Life of Charlotte Bronte is the posthumous biography of Charlotte Bronte by fellow novelist Elizabeth Gaskell. The first edition was published in 1857 by Smith, Elder & Co. A major source were the hundreds of letters sent by Bronte to her lifelong friend Ellen Nussey. Gaskell had to deal with some sensitive issues. She toned down some of her material: in the case of her description of the Clergy Daughters' School this was to avoid legal action from the Rev. William Carus Wilson. The published text does not go so far as to blame the school's founder for the deaths of two Bronte sisters, but even so Wilson published a short "refutation" of the biography. Although quite frank in many places, Gaskell suppressed details of Charlotte's love for Constantin Heger, a married man, on the grounds that it would be too great an affront to contemporary morals and a possible source of distress to Charlotte's still-living friends, father Patrick Bronte and husband. She also suppressed any reference to Charlotte's romance with George Smith, her publisher, who was also publishing the biography. (Wikipedia)

Bronte, Charlotte: JANE EYRE. Aus dem Engl.u.Nachw.v.Berhard Schindler. Leipzig, G.Kiepenheuer 1989.
Charlotte Bronte (1816 - 1855) ist die älteste der drei außergewöhnlichen Schriftsteller-Schwestern. Jane Eyre markierte Charlotte Brontes Durchbruch und trug ihr wegen der freimütigen Ansichten ihrer Heldin zeitlebens den Ruf einer moralischen Umstürzlerin ein. Jane Eyre ist intelligent und charakterstark, das macht sie zur Außenseiterin. Charlotte Bronte veröffentlichte "Jane Eyre - eine Autobiographie" im Jahr 1847 unter dem Pseudonym Currer Bell. Der Roman wurde von der Öffentlichkeit so gut aufgenommen, daß 1848 schon die dritte Auflage erscheinen konnte. Mit dramaturgischen Elementen der Gothic novels (Schauerroman) und des Sensationsromans schuf Charlotte Bronte eines der differenziertesten Frauenporträts der englischen Literatur. Von der feministischen Literaturkritik wird Jane Eyre häufig als rationalistischer Gegenentwurf zu Sturmhöhe, dem Hauptwerk Emily R Brontes, interpretiert. Mit ihrem Roman steht Charlotte Bronte einem Defoe in der Erzählweise deutlich näher als etwa Dickens oder Thackeray, obwohl sie weniger Sozialkritik oder naturgetreue Milieudarstellungen in den Vordergrund rückt, als vielmehr das Seelenleben ihrer Protagonistin.Ein wenig werkgetreuer Hollywoodfilm aus dem Jahre 1944 [mit Joan Fontaine und Orson Welles] reduzierte die Handlung allerdings zu sehr auf romantische Aspekte.; SEHR GUTER ZUSTAND [hehöbu]

Charlotte Bronte: Villette, PENGUIN CLASSICS,200412 ISBN: 9780140434798
Villette is Charlotte Bronte's powerful autobiographical novel of one woman's search for true love, edited with an introduction by Helen M. Cooper in Penguin Classics. With neither friends nor family, Lucy Snowe sets sail from England to find employment in a girls' boarding school in the small town of Villette. There, she struggles to retain her self-possession in the face of unruly pupils, the hostility of headmistress Madame Beck, and her own complex feelings - first for the school's English doctor and then for the dictatorial professor Paul Emanuel. Drawing on her own deeply unhappy experiences as a governess in Brussels, Charlotte Bronte'sautobiographical novel, the last published during her lifetime, is a powerfully moving study of loneliness and isolation, and the pain of unrequited love, narrated by a heroine determined to preserve an independent spirit in the face of adverse circumstances. Helen M. Cooper's new introduction places the novel in the context of Bronte's life and career and argues for the importance of the novel as an exploration of imperialism. Charlotte Bronte (1816-55), eldest of the Bronte sisters, was born in Thornton, West Yorkshire. Jane Eyre was first published in 1847 under the pen-name Currer Bell, and was followed by Shirley (1848) and Vilette (1853). In 1854 Charlotte Bronte married her father's curate, Arthur Bell Nicholls. She died during her pregnancy on 31 March 1855 in Haworth, Yorkshire. The Professor was posthumously published in 1857.
