introspective member of the famous Brontë family, whose only novel is one of the most significant of its period.

Emily, the most introspective of the Bront? sisters was briefly educated at school but so disliked being away from her home that she returned and continued with more informal schooling. Her early attempts at writing included poetry. Her work conveys a sense of mystery and longing that she experienced in her life. Her only novel, Wuthering Heights, is considered to be technically brilliant, with forthright and passionate language used to tell a fascinating saga. The brilliance of this novel was only acknowledged after her painful death from tuberculosis.
