Anne Bront--­euml--;­'s second novel seemed to many contemporary readers shockingly unlike her first Agnes Grey, published in the previous year. There, Charlotte Bront--­euml--; had admired her sister's `quiet description and simple pathos', but she was disturbed by The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, which reminded reviewers of Wuthering Heights: it was, in spite of its `excellent moral', `coarse, not to say brutal'. For Anne's heroine, Helen Huntingdon, having endured too many of the `revolting scenes' deplored by reviewers, leaves her dissolute husband in order to earn her own living and rescue her son from his influence. A passionate and courageous challenge to the conventions supposedly upheld by Victorian society and reflected in circulating-­library fiction, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is compelling in its imaginative power, in the bold naturalism of its central scenes, the realism and range of its dialogue, and in its psychological insight into the characters involved in the marital . . .

Author:

By far the most shocking of all the Brontë novels, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall paints a brutally vivid picture of nineteenth century alcoholism and debauchery and the desperate predicament of Helen, who is trapped in an abusive marriage. Standing up to her appalling husband in an era when women and wives had few rights was incredibly difficult, but her perseverance pays off. It was Anne Brontë's second and last novel and was an instant best seller - all the copies printed sold out within just six weeks. Considered one of the earliest feminist novels, it's just as accessible and enjoyable for today's modern readers as it would have been when first published over 150 years ago and is one of the great works of English literature that continues to be widely read throughout the world.
This meticulous digital edition from Heritage Illustrated Publishing is a faithful reproduction of the original text and is beautifully illustrated with a number of atmospheric historical paintings that . . .

Author:

Anne is the Bronte we never read in school and most of us dont read afterwards, which is a big loss for those who dont, because shes at least as talented as her two older sisters. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall can hold its own against Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights any day in the week, but it was panned in its own time, in large part because of its unladylike topic of alcoholism. Anne Bronte knew alcoholism first hand through her brother Bramwell who drank himself to death, and her revulsion of the alcoholic personality is central to this book. The heroine of Tenant, Helen Graham, is a headstrong and independent young woman, who marries Arthur Huntington against the advice of her family. She is one of those who loves not wisely but too well, because Arthur, a selfish and irresponsible womanizer, cares about nothing but satisfying his own wishes and desires. Helen wants to help Arthur turn his life around, which Arthur couldnt care less about, and his drinking and adultery right . . .
