Emily Brontë

Emily Brontë (1818 – 1848) is better known for her only novel Wuthering Heights than for her poetry. In the course of her short life she published only 21 poems in a volume entitled  Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell (1846) compiled with her sisters. It was nearly a hundred years before The Complete Poems of Emily Jane Brontë was published in 1941. This contains over 200 poems which explore the self, the imagination and the struggles of the human spirit.
