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

The Penguin English Library Edition of The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte

'She looked so like herself that I knew not how to bear it'

In this sensational, hard-hitting and passionate tale of marital cruelty, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall sees a mysterious tenant, Helen Graham, unmasked not as a 'wicked woman' as the local gossips would have it, but as the estranged wife of a brutal alcoholic bully, desperate to protect her son. Using her own experiences with her brother Branwell to depict the cruelty and debauchery from which Helen flees, Anne Bronte wrote her masterpiece to reflect the fragile position of women in society and her belief in universal redemption, but scandalized readers of the time.

“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

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
