我上周读完一本英语小说《勃朗特一家人的故事》,一开始选购此书是因为书名中的“勃朗特”挺耳熟,读到全书后半段我才反应过来,大学读过的《呼啸山庄》的作者就叫做艾米莉·勃朗特,《勃朗特一家人的故事》讲述的正是勃朗特三姐妹家庭的故事。

另外两位女作者及其代表作是夏洛蒂·勃朗特 ——《简·爱》,安妮·勃朗特 ——《艾格妮丝·格雷》。

Haworth is a windy, cold and miserable place where Bronte sisters live. The education environment is so terrible, children had to climb over hills and walk a long time from home to local school. There are many children died in local school. Patrick Bronte who is leading character of the book lost his two children too. There are left four children in the family: Charlotte, Anne, Emily and Branwell.

The sisters always wrote stories in secret. Emily had a dog named keeper. The sisters and the only son Branwell grew up With aunt Branwell’s helping. Charlotte Bronte and Anne Bronte worked as governesses for some months, although they didn’t like it, Branwell wanted to be a writer, but his books always were post back. After some days, Anne and Branwell got job from Robinson family, teaching family’s children. Emily stayed at home to cook and clean, Charlotte learned French in Brussels, every one wanted to achieve a goal —— making a French school in Haworth. But bad things followed, Branwell loved a Mrs Robinson who is old, wicked woman, the woman make Branwell lost himself forever. And no child sent to Bronte school.

One day, Charlotte Bronte gave Patrick Bronte good news, their books are published successfully, and sisters all used writer names because on one believed that woman can write:

real name writer name book
Charotte Bronte Currer Bell 《Jane Eyre》
Emily Bronte Ellis Bell 《Wuthering Heights》

Patrick Bronte was so proud of his daughter, but his son Branwell had become a drunk animal, finally he died in his room. The best days went away, Bronte sisters got ill one by one, they met god early. Patrick Bronte wrote his family story when he was almost blind.
