Read full description of the books:
La conacul Wildfell Hall, de mai multa vreme nelocuit, apare o locatara misterioasa : o tanara doamna , insotita doar de copilul si servitoarea ei.
In scurt timp ea este vizitata de doamnele din aceasta asezare si invitata la randul ei, sa se alature micii lor societati.
Desi este o femeie discreta, nu va reusi sa se sustraga ...bunavointei societatii feminine.
In timpul vizitelor pe care le face mai mult fara voia ei, dar si in timpul unor intalniri mai mult sau mai putin intamplatoare, se infiripa si o timida relatie de dragoste intre necunoscuta de la Wildfell Hall si Gilbert , fiul doamnei Markham.
Dar in curand apar zvonuri rauvoitoare la adresa d-nei Graham, alimentate si de vizitele d-lui Lawrence, actualul proprietar al conacului in care locuieste Helen.
Zvonurile sunt raspandite cu "generozitate" si de Eliza Millward, fiica pastorului din tinut, invidioasa ca prezenta acestei doamne starneste interesul lui Gilbert, care pana atunci o curtase pe ea.
Tanarul Gilbert , care se imprietenise si cu simpaticul Arthur, fiul d-nei Graham, respinge toate aceste zvonuri, pana cand intr-o seara, il zareste in conacul de la Wildfell Hall, pe fostul lui prieten, actualmente detestatul domn Lawrence.
Ranit in sentimentele lui, se indeparteaza de d-na Graham.In cele din urma reusesc sa poarte o discutie , Helen Graham inmanandu-i fara alte explicatii un jurnal al ei.
Din paginile lui aflam scurta idila a Elenei cu frumosul si preaplinul de sine domn Huntington, idila care duce la o casatorie deloc fericita.
In aceasta casatorie sotul avea pretentia de supunere neconditionata a sotiei , tanara Helen afland cu mare dezamagire ca sotul nu corespunde deloc idealurilor ei si nu au nici preocupari comune , care i-ar putea apropia.
Superficialul ei sot se alatura de multe ori vechilor lui prieteni neseriosi si cu preocupari marunte si, spre nefericirea ei, se deda unui flirt pe faţă cu mai vechea ei rivala Annabella , casatorita acum cu lordul Lowborough.
Arthur Huntingdon, sotul lui Helen, cu firea-i nestatornica , pleaca intr-o noua calatorie la Londra, tanara femeie ramand sa se consoleze in lungile luni de absenta pe care le prevede, cu prezenta dulce si nevinovata a fiului lor.

Read information about the authorAnne Brontë was a British novelist and poet, the youngest member of the Brontë literary family. Anne's two novels, written in a sharp and ironic style, are completely different from the romanticism followed by her sisters, Emily Brontë and Charlotte Brontë. She wrote in a realistic, rather than a romantic style. Mainly because the re-publication of The Tenant of Wildfell Hall was prevented by Charlotte Brontë after Anne's death, she is less known than her sisters. However, her novels, like those of her sisters, have become classics of English literature.
The daughter of a poor Irish clergyman in the Church of England, Anne Brontë lived most of her life with her family at the parish of Haworth on the Yorkshire moors. In Elizabeth Gaskell's biography, Anne's father remembered her as precocious, reporting that once, when she was four years old, in reply to his question about what a child most wanted, she answered: "age and experience".
During her life Anne was particularly close to Emily. When Charlotte's friend Ellen Nussey visited Haworth in 1833, she reported that Emily and Anne were "like twins", "inseparable companions". Together they created imaginary world Gondal after they broke up from Charlotte and Branwell who created another imaginary world – Angria.
For a couple of years she went to a boarding school. At the age of 19 she left Haworth and worked as a governess between 1839 and 1845.
After leaving her teaching position, she fulfilled her literary ambitions. She wrote a volume of poetry with her sisters (Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell, 1846) and two novels. Agnes Grey, based upon her experiences as a governess, was published in 1847. Her second and last novel, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, which is considered to be one of the first sustained feminist novels, appeared in 1848 and was an instant, phenomenal success; within six weeks it was sold out.
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is perhaps the most shocking of the Brontës' novels. In seeking to present the truth in literature, Anne's depiction of alcoholism and debauchery was profoundly disturbing to 19th-century sensibilities. Helen Graham, the tenant of the title, intrigues Gilbert Markham and gradually she reveals her past as an artist and wife of the dissipated Arthur Huntingdon. The book's brilliance lies in its revelation of the position of women at the time, and its multi-layered plot.
Her sister Emily's death on 19 December 1848 deeply affected Anne and her grief undermined her physical health. Over Christmas, Anne caught influenza. Her symptoms intensified, and in early January, her father sent for a Leeds physician, who diagnosed her condition as consumption, and intimated that it was quite advanced leaving little hope of recovery. Anne met the news with characteristic determination and self-control.
Unlike Emily, Anne took all the recommended medicines, and responded to the advice she was given. That same month she wrote her last poem, " A dreadful darkness closes in", in which she deals with being terminally ill.
In February 1849, Anne decided to make a return visit to Scarborough in the hope that the change of location and fresh sea air might initiate a recovery. However, it was clear that she had little strength left.
Dying, Anne expressed her love and concern for Ellen and Charlotte, and seeing Charlotte's distress, whispered to her to "take courage". Conscious and calm, Anne died at about two o'clock in the afternoon, Monday, 28 May 1849.
