by Jane O'Neill



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Published to coincide with the bicentenaries of the Brontë siblings, this quirky volume looks at the life, work, and legacy of this wildly creative family.
The Brontës Treasury explores Britain’s best-loved literary family and the enduring popularity of their writing. It reveals why the Brontës’ novels have intrigued, inspired, and shocked millions since their publication more than 160 years ago, and how the sisters’ social world and surroundings influenced their art. Devoted fans will learn about the provenance of the surname Brontë, why the siblings all died so young, which sister became famous in her lifetime, and the passionate love that influenced Vilette.

Jane O’Neill is a life member of the Brontë Society and plays an active role in the educational program of the Brontë Parsonage Museum. She has written and produced a video for the Museum entitled The Young Person’s Guide to the Brontës of Haworth, which won a commendation from The Society for the Interpretation of Britain’s Heritage. She also wrote and produced a critical video on Wuthering Heights, and published books on both this and Jane Eyre.
