Publisher: Classic Books Library
“The Tenant of Wildfell Hall” a novel by English author Anne Brontë. Her second and last novel, it is presented in the form of a series of letters from one Gilbert Markham to his friend and brother-in-law about how he met his wife. An enigmatic young widow arrives at the uninhabited Elizabethan mansion called Wildfell Hall. After taking up residence there in a hermit-like manner, she becomes the victim of terrible slander. She is befriended by a local man who is sceptical of the local and who gradually comes to learn of her tragic past. Among the most disturbing and shocking of the novels published by the Brontës family, it enjoyed incredible success—despite her sister Charlotte's preventing its re-publication after her death. “The Tenant of Wildfell Hall” constitutes a must-read for lovers of classic English literature and it is not to be missed by those who have read and enjoyed other works by the Brontë sisters. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
