Who Was Emily Brontë?

Thursday 12 December 2024

An online Thursday Talk from the Brontë Parsonage Museum.

An online Thursday Talk from 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, 7:30pm (GMT)
Tickets: £5

This online event will take place live via Zoom. All ticket-holders will also be emailed a recording of the talk within 24 hours after the event. The link to the recording will be live for a month.
