Description - The Infernal World of Branwell Bronte by Daphne Du Maurier
As a bold and gifted child, his promise seemed boundless to the three adoring sisters over whom his rule was complete. But as an adult, the precocious flame of genius distorted and burned low. With neither the strength nor the resources to counter rejection, unable to sell his paintings or publish his books, Branwell became a spectre in the Bronte story, pursued by the twin demons of drink and madness. No reader will fail to be intensely moved by Branwell's final retreat into laudanum, alcohol - and death.
