    Summary

    The Bronte sisters, most famous for their novels, began their career with a slim volume of poetry, published under pseudonyms. It only sold two volumes, but inspired much interest in the identities of the unknown poets. This is a recording of the more successful 1850 edition, which includes additional poems by Emily and Anne which Charlotte collected after their deaths.
