One of the BBC's '100 Novels That Shaped Our World'

A beautiful edition of Anne Brontë's most enduring novel, to accompany her sisters' greatest books in Penguin Clothbound Classics.

Gilbert Markham is deeply intrigued by Helen Graham, a beautiful and secretive young woman who has moved into nearby Wildfell Hall with her young son. He is quick to offer Helen his friendship, but when her reclusive behaviour becomes the subject of local gossip and speculation, Gilbert begins to wonder whether his trust in her has been misplaced. It is only when she allows Gilbert to read her diary that the truth is revealed and the shocking details of the disastrous marriage she has left behind emerge. Told with great immediacy, combined with wit and irony, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is a powerful depiction of a woman's fight for domestic independence and creative freedom.

The Penguin Classics edition of Anne Brontë's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall has been designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith and is edited with an introduction and notes by the novelist Stevie Davies.

“Surprisingly relevant today”

This was very much a surprising novel, and the Brontes continue to upend my expectations of them. I loved Anne's frankness, and bravery in painting a viscerally detailed picture of what life was like for abused... More

“A pleasant surprise”

Having given to believe that Anne was the "lightweight" of the Bronte sisters, I had not considered reading this book until now, in my 66th year. I have been pleasantly surprised. This book is very forward... More
