[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)

Charlotte Bronte: The Complete Works of Charlotte Bronte and Her Sisters (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books,20150602 ISBN: 9781330247280
The Bronte sisters are some of the most famous women in literature. Each wrote at least one novel that would go on to become a classic and to be read by women everywhere throughout history. Charlotte Bronte, the eldest of the three Bronte sisters, wrote multiple novels that are still ranked among the most cherished books in literature. Shirley, the novel completed after Jane Eyre, was written during a period of immense turmoil in Charlotte's life. These personal dramas affected both the feel and the outcome of the novel. Set around the War of 1812, Shirley is a glimpse of the industrial unrest in Britain. This novel also examines the gender expectations of women in society. While in other books Charlotte chooses a first person narrator, Shirley stands out for its use of a third person omniscient narrator who gives more voice to the struggles of all individuals during this period of time. Perhaps one of the most intriguing elements of this story is the friendship between Shirley and Caroline which gives the reader insight into the relationship that Charlotte had with her sisters. Another strength of this novel is Charlotte's use of minor characters who each bring their own unique personalities into the story and ripen it with entertainment. Charlotte's master craft of writing engaging characters and dramatic events make all of her novels enchanting. Her ability to dissect societal issues, while also creating an appealing story line makes her novels intriguing and timeless. It's no surprise that these works have become literary classics. Take a moment to read these amazing works that have stood against the test of time and proven themselves worthy.

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]
