    This is the real life story of the BrontesThis isn’t some romanticised version of them; this isn’t some fanciful reworking of the backdrop of Wuthering Heights in which the sisters wondered around the moors all day looking forlorn; this isn’t some cultural regurgitation of this overworked schema that has infested our ideas about the sisters this is an actualised version of the reality of their lives an

    Some time ago I read The King's Touch by Jude Morgan about James Duke of Monmouth and loved it so I'm surprised it took me so long to read Morgan's latest novel The Taste of Sorrow The Taste of Sorrow tells a familiar sto

    Although much is known about the Bronte sisters and their shared passion for writing it’s difficult to make it through high school without reading one or both of Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights Morgan’s exploration of the Bronte family their struggles and the early losses that shaped their writing is so fresh it makes you want to read their work all over again The author effortlessly draws you into the Bronte’s world thei

    Charlotte and Emily originally published as The Taste Sorrow was a brilliant and beautiful novel I am on such a Brontë high after finishing it The novel opens with the death of the mother Maria Brontë in 1821 and ends with Charlotte's marriage to Arthur Nicholls in 1854 I'm thankful that the book ended before her death because frankly I had had enough of death at that point I'm not going to go into detail about the l

    Historical fiction about the Brontes Charlotte Anne Emily and Branwell I struggled with this book A lot The beginning was engaging and the end was simply on fire But the middle seemed weighted down with a lot of detail about the girls' times as governesses and teachers and understand uite uickly that was not what they want

    This is a book about the Brontë family and not just of the three girls turned writers Anne Charlotte and Emily but also of their household Their brother Branwell has a prominent place and a big influence on his sisters The book is uite inventive and can be read as fiction due to the long dialogues that are by necessity imagined However the facts themselves are stark and shocking Poor Mr Brontë the father his wife an

    It’s because I’m all wrong that I have to find something right And I found it here in this room We all did didn’t we? We found something that alters the conditions of life You write You write yourself out of it you write it out you write it right” p 258Like many other readers I suspect I first read the books by the Brontes in young adulthood and I’ve returned to them from time to time with fresh eyes over the years While

The Taste of Sorrow

Charlotte Emily Anne The Brontë sisters the drama the passion and a story that lives for everOnce upon a time there were three sisters bound by love and suffering growing up in w. This is the real life story of the BrontesThis isn t some romanticised version of them this isn t some fanciful reworking of the backdrop of Wuthering Heights in which the sisters wondered around the moors all day looking forlorn this isn t some cultural regurgitation of this overworked schema that has infested our ideas about the sisters this is an actualised version of the reality of their lives and it s rather excellent The Taste of Sorrow presents the true unadulterated life of the Bronte family It wasn t a very nice childhood for the girls It was full of sickness death and depravity What struck me most strongly when reading this and various academic biographies and theory books I ve studied over the last year is how much the personal experience of the young Charlotte affected her later writing In Jane Eyre the character of Helen Burns was inspired by her the oldest Bronte sister who died at a similar institute Similarly the deplorable Brocklehurst derived from an actual strict school master In a sense a part of Charlotte s novels are semi autobiographical Perhaps that s why she utilises the first person so effectively I m digressing here But what I mean to say is that the research carried out shines through this historically rich narrative Whist it is a work of fiction it is very strongly based upon facts The Bronte s produced such iconic pieces of literature their legacy speaks for itself and this is a uniue look at the women behind the works it is a suggestion how they could have felt when writing and undergoing personal turmoil It is truly surprising that all these works came out one family It is unusual and brilliant Emily s world fascinates and disturbs in it you can touch thick Yorkshire speech and moorland rain slants across your mind with a smell of mossy limestone and yet you are not at home you might almost be in Gondal or Angria except the towers and the dungeons are of the spirit the dungeons especially and sometimes when Emily reads out in her low almost guttural voice Charlotte wants to run but can t think why or where she would run to Personally Charlotte is my favourite Bronte I think she had the most talent And the Charlotte depicted here is a strong one She outlived all of her siblings and still carried on with her life it didn t prevent her from writing she transferred her feeling into her writing Emily was a little bit of an outcast and naturally in this novel she is a recluse Anne was the one who existed most in reality and actually tried to improve her family before her death rather than lock herself away Anne s is a world very like this one and you can move about in it with familiarity but not freedom it is a place of rigorous conseuence where the weak have to give way to the strong where her governess heroine Agnes must walk as best she can in the cold shade of money and masculinity Despite their contrasting personalities each Bronte sister found that they were looked down upon in the role of a governess After the failures they each had in teaching they began writing And I couldn t be thankful enough that their teaching careers were terrible Can you imagine what the literary world would have missed out on We never truly would have understood the role of the governess So this is a rather good historical novel I thought I d also take a moment to mention the writing style itself It is very evocative effective and laden with colons As some of you may have noticed I rather like colons and semi colons I find them most expressive So when I see them used so wonderfully in a modern novel I have to mention it They re simply not used enough in writing today I really do recommend this book to Bronte fans whether Charlotte Emily or Anne is your favourite I think you might enjoy this too

Ild isolation in a lonely house on the moor Their story will astonish you their passionate dangerous closeness; their struggle against the world; their determination to rise above. Charlotte and Emily originally published as The Taste Sorrow was a brilliant and beautiful novel I am on such a Bront high after finishing it The novel opens with the death of the mother Maria Bront in 1821 and ends with Charlotte s marriage to Arthur Nicholls in 1854 I m thankful that the book ended before her death because frankly I had had enough of death at that point I m not going to go into detail about the lives of the Bront s A simple Google search can fill you in there so I won t bore you The writing was just beautiful and I felt that Morgan totally got it From what I ve gathered the personalities of Charlotte Branwell Emily and Anne were written spot on I felt the sadness and the loneliness the heartbreak and the disappointment and finally success I loved the scenes of the three sisters sitting around the table at night writing their novels It was almost as though I was there with them holding my breath afraid of disturbing them As an avid fan of all things Bront I was not disappointed in this novel at all It completely passed my expectations above and beyond I feel as though I know them intimately now The only thing I was disappointed with was the title I hate how it was changed for the American edition because the story was than just Charlotte and Emily The title The Taste of Sorrow is much suitable This is definitely a keeper
