'Frighteningly up-to-date tale of single motherhood and wife-battering' Independent
When the mysterious and beautiful young widow Helen Graham becomes the new tenant at Wildfell Hall rumours immediately begin to swirl around her. As her neighbour Gilbert Markham comes to discover, Helen has painful secrets buried in her past that even his love for her cannot easily overcome.
It is a powerful and sometimes violent novel of expectation, love, oppression, sin, religion and betrayal.
On its first publication in 1848, Anne Brontës second novel was criticised for being 'coarse' and 'brutal'. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall challenged the social conventions of the early nineteenth century in a strong defence of women's rights in the face of psychological abuse from their husbands. Anne Brontë's style is bold, naturalistic and passionate, and this novel, which her sister Charlotte considered 'an entire mistake', has earned her a position in English Literature in her own right.
