About the Author Emily Bronte

Emily Brontë was born in Thornton, near Bradford in Yorkshire to Patrick Brontë and Maria Branwell. She was the young sister of Charlotte Brontë and the fifth of six youngsters. In 1824, the family moved to Haworth, where Emily's dad was perpetual curate, and it was in these surroundings that their literary oddities flourished. In childhood, after the death of their mom, the 3 sisters and their brother Patrick Branwell Brontë built imaginary lands, which were showcased in stories they wrote. Little of Emily's function from this period survived, except for poems spoken by characters (The Brontës' Web of Childhood, Fannie Ratchford, 1941).

In 1842, Emily commenced function as a governess at Miss Patchett's Ladies Academy at Law Hill School, near Halifax, exiting after about six months due to homesickness. Later, with her sister Charlotte, she attended a private school in Brussels run by Constantin Heger and his spouse, Claire Zoé Parent Heger. They later tried to open a school at their house, but had no pupils.
It was the discovery of Emily's poetic talent by Charlotte that led her and her sisters to publish a joint collection of their poetry in 1846, Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. To evade modern prejudice against woman writers, the Brontë sisters adopted androgynous initial names. All 3 retained the initially letter of their initially names: Charlotte became Currer Bell, Anne became Acton Bell, and Emily became Ellis Bell. In 1847, she published her just novel, Wuthering Heights, as 2 volumes of the 3 amount set (the last amount being Agnes Grey by her sister Anne). Its innovative structure somewhat puzzled critics. Although it received mixed critiques when it initially came out, the book subsequently became an English literary classic. In 1850, Charlotte edited and published Wuthering Heights as a stand-alone novel and under Emily's real name. One of Emily's biographers Juliet Barker has reported that Charlotte destroyed the manuscript of the 2nd novel following her death.

Emily's wellness, like her sisters', had been weakened by the harsh regional climate at house and at school. She caught a cold during the funeral of her brother in September which led to tuberculosis. Consequently, having refused all health aid, she died on 19 December 1848 at about 2 in the afternoon. She was interred in the Church of St. Michael and All Angels family capsule, Haworth, West Yorkshire, England.
