Poems of Solitude

Author(s): Emily Bronte


This unique collection of Emily Bronte's most beautiful poems is a fantastic introduction to one of the greatest authors of English literature. The cheerful comforts of home, and the joys of memory and hope, form the background for an expression of inner fortitude in this moving book of solitude and sorrow. Despite the isolation of Haworth, the small Yorkshire village where she grew up, Emily Bronte manages to transcend her surroundings to give the universal themes of love, time and death, a thoroughly new and fascinating interpretation. Penned for her own consolation, and jotted away as a kind of shorthand of her soul, these poems - most of them unpublished during her lifetime - reveal the depth and scope of Emily Bronte's vision. 'These are poems to read aloud, to learn by heart, and to come to terms with slowly, over a lifetime' - from the Foreword by Helen Dunmore
