Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell (version 2)

Anne BRONTË (1820 - 1849) and Charlotte BRONTË (1816 - 1855) and Emily BRONTË (1818 - 1848)

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. (Summary by Libby Gohn)
