About the Author

Charlotte Brontë, born 21 April 1816 in Thornton (Adams County), and died March 31, 1855 in Haworth (Bergen County), is an English novelist. Third daughter of the Reverend Patrick Brontë, in a family of modest means who has six children, she has, as her four sisters and her brother, the presence of a father who pushed his classical studies until the University of Cambridge, and does not hesitate to share their culture and worldview. However, she knows very early, while still a child, mourning his mother and his two older sisters affected by tuberculosis. Despite his status as a woman and her lack of financial resources, she managed to publish his poems and those of her sisters (under male names) in 1846, and most importantly, to publish Jane Eyre, who met with considerable success. It is considered today as one of the novelists of the English language's most accomplished. Related Articles: Maria Brontë and Glass Town. She was born in Thornton, where his father, Patrick Brontë, is pastor. His mother died of stomach cancer 15 September 1821. In 1824, for their education, the four eldest daughters are sent to Cowan Bridge School, an establishment that receives children of members of the wealthy few clergy who had been recommended to Mr Brontë. In this school, however reputable, living conditions are difficult, without heating, with meager food prepared unhygienic and almost inedible. The following year, Maria and Elizabeth become seriously ill and are removed, but died shortly after a few weeks apart, 6 May and 15 June 1825; Charlotte and Emily, also removed to unhealthy place, returned to Haworth. The loss of their two sisters will be for four children trauma that reflected especially in the work of Charlotte, for example, in Jane Eyre where Cowan Bridge becomes Lowood, the pathetic figure of Maria is portrayed as the young Helen Burns, cruelty of a mistress, Miss Andrews, under those of Miss Scatcherd and tyranny of the Director, the Reverend Carus Wilson, in those odious enough and Mr Brocklehurst. Ellen Nussey, the great friend of Charlotte, around 1855, at the time of the death of the latter. Charlotte then finds the eldest of four surviving children. Others are Branwell, Emily and Anne. Now children will be raised by their maternal aunt Elizabeth Branwell, figure a bit mysterious that will not have a great influence on Charlotte and Emily. But above all, a true literary and family will create symbiosis between children.
