About the Author

Charlotte Bronte (1816-55) was an English novelist and poet, and the eldest of the world-famous Bronte sisters whose novels are considered classics in nineteenth century fiction. Their works still intrigue fans today, more than 150 years after they were first published. Charlotte left school at age 14 to tutor her sisters, Emily and Anne, and the sisters later turned to writing when they were unsuccessful in opening a school. Charlotte's first novel The Professor (1857) was at first rejected, but her second novel Jane Eyre was published in 1847 to great success. By 1848 the sisters had renounced their pseudonyms and became celebrated in literary circles for their gripping novels.
