9780141199351: The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (The Penguin English Library)

The Penguin English Library Edition of The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontė

'She looked so like herself that I knew not how to bear it'

In this sensational, hard-hitting and passionate tale of marital cruelty, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall sees a mysterious tenant, Helen Graham, unmasked not as a 'wicked woman' as the local gossips would have it, but as the estranged wife of a brutal alcoholic bully, desperate to protect her son. Using her own experiences with her brother Branwell to depict the cruelty and debauchery from which Helen flees, Anne Brontė wrote her masterpiece to reflect the fragile position of women in society and her belief in universal redemption, but scandalized readers of the time.

The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

Review:

'This is the seventh and final volume of the Clarendon Edition of the Novels of the Brontes ... not only have they all been edited with scrupulous scholarship but great care has obviosuly been taken to make them handsome in binding, layout and typography'Douglas Hewitt, Pembroke College, Oxford, Notes and Queries, March 1993

It is particularly gratifying to have a definitive library edition of The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. (reveiw of English Studies)

It is obvious to the careful reader that a massive amount of textual evidence has been compressed into this Clarendon volume. The Introduction to the Clarendon edition ... is a model of its type ... Rosengarten unequivocally introduces the text, providing the reader with a context for the composition and publication of the novel. Nowhere in Brontė scholarship is it possible to find such a complete and valuable compilation of the publication history ... One can only admire the grasp Rosengarten has of the myriad typographical and substantive errors that mar the variant versions of the early editions and the lucid way in which he presents and explains such complex data ... a book well worth having: it is scholarly, handsomely produced and easy to read ... provides a fitting conclusion to the Clarendon series and, as such, represents a milestone in Brontė scholarship. (Peter L. Shillingsburg, Mississippi State University, TEXT, Volume 9, 1997)
