In 1834, Charlotte Bronte and her brother Branwell, created the imaginary kingdom of Angria, of which she was to write prolifically for the next five years.

Written from the viewpoint of the cynical, gossipy Charles Townshend, they offer an ironic portrait of the intrigues, scandals and passions of an aritocratic beau monde. With their varied cast of characters - ranging from the aging rake Northangerland and his Byronic son-in-law Zamorna to Elizabeth Hastngs, the respectable young governess - they provide a fascnating glimpse into the mind and creative processes of the young writer who was to become one of the worlds's great novelists.
