Description - A Chainless Soul by Katherine Frank

A fine retelling of the Brontes story . . . It does much to throw light on the achievement of one of the greatest geniuses of nineteenth-century literature. The New York Times Book Review In this compelling, beautifully written book, Emily Bronte emerges for the first time in the full complexity of her nature the most gifted and intelligent of the Bronte sisters, and also the most passionate, willful, and self-destructive. Katherine Frank, whose biography of Mary Kingsley won wide critical acclaim, brings a novelist s dramatic flair and a brilliant gift for analysis to this bold reinterpretation of Emily Bronte s life: the negligence of her sickly father, her affliction with anorexia, the fierce need to rebel that produced Wuthering Heights and her magnificent poetry. Probing the depths of Emily Bronte s dark nature as no other biographer has done, Frank also sheds new light on her special place in her gifted, doomed family and her consuming relationships with Charlotte and her alcoholic brother, Branwell. A Chainless Soul paints an intimate, vivid, and deeply affecting portrait of one of the greatest, and most misunderstood, artists of nineteenth-century fiction."
