Poetic World of Emily Bronte
Poems From the Author of Wuthering HeightseBook - 2014
Bringing an unjustifiably marginalized poet out of the shadows, this book presents Emily Brontë's poetry in a way that enables readers, even those who shy away from poetry, to appreciate her work. She is widely known as a novelist, but she was first and equally a poet. Her poems are varied, lyrical, intriguing, and innovative, yet they are not well known. Unlike any other collection of Brontë's poetry, this volume arranges selected poems by thematic topic: nature, mutability, love, death, captivity and freedom, hope and despair, imagination, and spirituality. It provides literary and biographical information on each topic and interpretations, explanations, and insights into each poem. Fans of Wuthering Heights wanting more from Emily Brontë will discover that her poetry is as memorable and powerful as her novel. This book is for all who appreciate poetry, especially from the golden age of 19th-century verse. The exploration of her poetic world allows a greater and different understanding of Wuthering Heights and insights into Brontë's fascinating mind.--Provided by the publisher.
