Emily Brontë

1818–1848
Emily Brontë
Emily Brontë’s first verses appeared in a book with work by her sisters Charlotte and Anne, pseudonymously titled Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell in order to conceal the authors’ gender. Emily’s poems are distinguished from her siblings’ by their sober tone and visionary spirituality, qualities also found in her famous novel, Wuthering Heights.

What People are Saying

"Something that I learned from Poetry Out Loud that surprised me is how connected I feel with the poems I have recited. I never expected to have such a great love of poetry and I know that is something that will never go away because of this amazing experience."
