About this book

Comprising nine original essays by specialists in material culture, book history,

literary criticism and curatorial and archival studies, this co-edited volume

addresses a wide range of Brontë’s writing—from vignettes composed during her

teenage years (“The Tea Party” and “The Secret”) to completed novels (The

ProfessorJane EyreShirley and Villette) and unfinished works (“Ashworth” and

“Emma”). In bringing to life the surprising array of embodied experiences that

shaped Brontë’s creative practice (from writing to book-making, painting, and

drawing), Charlotte Brontë, Embodiment and the Material World forges new

connections between historical, material, and textual approaches to the author’s

work.
