    The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is not quite Wuthering Heights or Jane Eyre, but I did really enjoy it It s surprising, given how dated the characters moralizing is, but I was so swept up in the past and the setting that I felt totally 19th Century level shocked by the cheating and lying and gasp drinking.There s something about the Brontes because it feels impossible not to speak of them collectively that just works for me Maybe it is our shared birthplace close to those dark, dreary Yorkshire moors Maybe I just love that all three are unafraid to create characters protagonists, even that are pretty darn despicable Or worse annoying and sanctimonious like Helen Graham.I m pretty sure I should hate Helen I almost do But I thoroughly enjoyed reading her story and despite her being absolutely insufferable in her self righteous diatribes I can find a sort of affection for her and admire how strong and steadfast she was in a time when women had very little power.Here, Anne Bronte frames one character s first person narrative inside another, which I actually really liked Whethe...

    Carol said I must list my all time favorite books What a challenge this is I have read everything those Bronte girls wrote, even their childhood poetry and I love all of it But Anne will take the showing on my list for her bravery Of course Charlotte was the most prolific and Emily the true brainiac, but Anne has my complete respect for being a true literary pioneer she was the first woman to write of a wife leaving her abusive husband and then goes on to lead a happy, successful life Up to this point, any woman who left her husband met some type of horrific demise At one point in the novel she slams the door on her husband and feminists claim it was the door slam heard around the world Critics were and still are harsh toward Anne because of the structure of the novel she hides, somewhat, behind the devices of letters and diaries they claim, and I agree, that her tale would ha...

    Reformed rakes make the best husbands This is the maxim that governs the universe of historical romance novels That a puerile assumption regarding dissolute cads turning into paragons of puritanical goodness on being administered the vital dosage of a virgin s love fuels women s fantasies in this day and age depresses me to no end In a sense, this is the dialectical opposite of Kerouac s On the Road in that it systematically demystifies a contrived notion of masculine coolness the bastard child of a vile solipsism and unchecked aggression that the latter romanticized Women writers of today, particularly those who are laughing all the way to the bank by mass producing this unforgivable blather, wake the hell up The youngest Bront sister saw the evil the cult of machismo breeds in young male children and portrayed it without inhibitions, without holding anything back 150 years ago What are you still waiting for It is all very well to talk about noble resistance, and trials of virtue but for fifty or five hundred men that have yielded to temptation, show me one that has had virtue to resist And why should I take it for granted that my son will be one in a thousand and not rather prepare for the worst, and suppose he will be like this like the rest of mankind, unless I take care to prevent it Reading this nearly made me experience that same nightmare that is encapsulated in Atwood s The Handmaid s Tale Of co...

    An unknown woman suddenly appears in the dilapidated mansion, Wildfell Hall, abandoned for many years, by the wealthy family, who owned it, as uninhabitable, surrounded by the bleak moorlands, in a remote, quiet village, in the northern English countryside, during the early part of the 19th century, no one knew she was coming, the locals are very curious, who is she What is she doing, calling herself Mrs.Graham, a widow, with a lively five year old boy, Arthur The villagers distrust outsiders, the gloomy, dismal, cold, Wildfell Hall, is not fit to live, only a couple of rooms are fixed, and just loyal, old servant Rachel, to assist, there is a mystery to be solved The son of a late gentleman farmer, Gilbert Markham, a neighbor, is smitten by Helen Graham, her beauty, poise, intelligence, good manners, and still young, about 25, around the same age as he Going to see Mrs.Graham often, any excuse will do, being a friendly, good neighbor, bringing a book, giving her son a puppy, finally declaring his undying love, but Helen rejects him, it is not possible any future between the couple, some enigma, from the past, that remains unexplained and Gilbert shouldn t come any, it is upsetting her feelings The unusually independent woman, rare in those days, makes a modest living, painting and selling beautiful,...

    Bravissima, Bront There is a straight logical line leading from the brilliant fiction of Anne Bront , written in 1847, to Margaret Atwood s equally persuasive The Handmaid s Tale of our own era Eloquent, erudite, witty women describe what makes patriarchal, Christian society brutally unjust to any woman of feeling and intelligence, and not just in extreme cases, but in its core idea of women s roles and choice lessness their suppressed individual right to self defined sexuality and their denied financial and judicial independence.It is the eternal story of beautiful, smart Helen She is 18 years old, and she feels attracted to a typical bad guy, Arthur Huntingdon In a modern, liberal, democratic and equal society, she will have an affair with him during her teenage years, then she will get over the butterflies, leave him and embark on another adventure during her years of professional emancipation and training, possibly with less disgusting Mr Hargrave When she realises that he isn t her type either, she will break up again and eventually find her Mr Markham, marry him and have children while pursuing her professional career Possibly, the marriage will work out, and they will live through ups and downs and stay together Or they might divorce and go their separate ways again, on equal terms.But this is not the kind of society Helen is born into She is brainwashed with a genuine fear of Hell, and a ...

    Some movies are really pretty bad except for one transcendent performance, Sophie s Choice for instance The glittering pallid Meryl Streep is just brilliant whilst the movie itself is a bit of a pain Same with novels The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is a game of three halves For the first 100 pages the tiresomely earnest Gilbert Markham tells his tale of how he fell in love with the new lady tenant of the crumbling hall and how she drove him crazy with her intense mysteriousness and this is all very well but the next 200 pages is the diary of the said lady and wow.Helen Graham s own story is fierce and scintillatingly told It s of how she set her cap for this beautiful bad boy and got all married to him with everyone telling her it was a terrible mistake, and how little by little, she found herself living a life of horror no, there was never any physical violence, but there were all the colours of the rainbow of psychological violence, beginning with the speed his originally perfectly sincere love and lust dwindled away, and how his excursions to London with his old rakish buddies began to take longer and longer, and how the wine and spirits became and noticeable, and how eventually he would openly flaunt his affairs in front of her, inviting his latest girlfriend as a houseguest...

    What a surprisingly good read The Tenant of Wildfell Hall was.I think when you read a Classic like this you have to immerse yourself in the time when it was written and this one goes back to the mid 1840s, a time when the pace of life was slower, and when there was no Television or social media and a time when snail mail and word of mouth were the facebook and twitter of the time I think if you have the ability to do this you would love and enjoy this novel as I am sure this was a rocking good read for any reader back in 1848.The novel is divided into three volumes and begins with the arrival of the beautiful and mysterious Mrs Graham in a sleepy country neighborhood Mrs Graham causes quite a stir as she gives the country folk something new to talk and gossip about but the talk soon turns to nasty rumors about her and her son The book s setting is the English country side with its isolated sprawling manors, rugged good looking gentlemen and cackle of young women on the hunt for well to do husbands.The story is edgy and fresh for its time with likable and dislikable characters and a plot that was suprisingly engrossing The writting is descriptive but very readable and while I read this ...

    An autobiographical novel that shocked society at the time, it mainly addresses the problems caused by alcoholism and debauchery and the struggle of women to achieve equal rights Gilbert Markham is deeply attached to Helen, a woman who has a reputation for being immoral and hiding an obscure past, which he always tries to defend even if he does not know the truth Only with the passage of time Helen gains confidence and ends up revealing ...

    4.5 stars Move over, Charlotte Make room for my new favorite Bront It is inevitable for me to compare Anne Bront with her sisters, and Helen Graham with Jane Eyre particularly, but I shall momentarily do so anyway Some said this was better than any Bront novel published, some claimed it deeply overhyped After reading this, I shall have to agree with the former claim as I thought this book surpassed, to quite an extent, the love I had for Jane Eyre.The Tenant of Wildfell Hall shook me from the first page, when I discovered that rather than the conventional female perspective, the narrative opens with a letter penned by a male protagonist, Gilbert Markham I am not the biggest fan of framed stories but this one was deeply engaging all the way through Through Gilbert s letter, we then dive into Helen s diaries and her life, which forms the majority of the novel.Helen Graham is by far of the strongest female protagonist I have ever had the pleasure of reading about It s not simply because she has been thr...

    With this book Anne has now become my favorite Bront Amazing story Not only is the writing phenomenal but the issues she addresses were truly progressive for the time feminism, alcoholism, abuse, etc A must read
