About the Author:

Lyndall Gordon is the prize-winning author of T. S. Eliot: An Imperfect Life and Lives Like Loaded Guns. She is a Fellow at the Royal Society of Literature and a member of PEN. She lives in Oxford.

From Booklist:

The author of Jane Eyre and Villette lived an extraordinary life, not so much in terms of events, but because of her profound resourcefulness and creative expressiveness. Gordon, author of a biography of Virginia Woolf and Shared Lives (1992), achieves some remarkable eloquence herself as she dismantles once and for all the image of Charlotte Bront{‰}e as a figure of pathos and presents, instead, a courageous survivor, a determined writer, and a woman of volcanic emotion. Small, tough, and unfashionable, Bront{‰}e lived on after her mother and her five siblings, including fellow writers Emily and Anne, succumbed to illness and death. As the physical world betrayed her, Bront{‰}e turned to the life of the mind and the revitalizing power of words. Gordon, as skilled at literary analysis as at chronicling a life, approaches Bront{‰}e's tragic and enduringly relevant story from several angles, carefully identifying all the autobiographical elements of her novels and contrasting her commitment to writing and her independent spirit to her era's strict and pitiless code of behavior for women. Gordon also examines the gestalt of Bront{‰}e's unusual family, her painful relationships with men, and her decision, at the peak of her success, to choose life over art and marry, a choice followed all too soon by her premature death.
