Who Was Emily Brontë?

Thursday 12 December 2024

A Thursday Talk at the Brontë Parsonage Museum

December 12th 2024 02:00pm - 03:00pm

A Thursday Talk at the Brontë Parsonage Museum

Emily Brontë is regarded as the 'sphinx of English literature' and the most enigmatic of the three Brontë sisters. In her lifetime, she was known for her extreme reserve and, according to Charlotte, led an almost reclusive existence. This talk will explore what we know about Emily Brontë and will argue that, from her own writings and especially her poetry, we can learn a great deal more about her than is popularly believed.
This talk will be given by Tamar Yellin, a volunteer tour guide at the Museum and a lifelong student of Emily's life and work.
Date: Thursday 12 December, 2pm
Venue: Brontë Event Space at the Old School Room
Free with entry to the Museum and for residents in BD20, BD21, and BD22. No need to book.

Thursday Talks are delivered by our knowledgeable Museum staff and volunteers.  
This event will take place at the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth. Can't make it in person? No problem! We'll be running an online version of this talk the same day. Book for the online version of this event here.
