Anne Bronte

Anne Bronte (born 17 January 1820; died 28 May 1849) was a British novelist and poet, the youngest member of the Bront→ literary family.  The daughter of a poor Irish clergyman in the Church of England, Anne Bront→ lived most of her life with her family at the parish of Haworth on the Yorkshire moors. For a couple of years she went to a boarding school. At the age of 19 she left Haworth and worked as a  governess between 1839 and 1845. After leaving her teaching position, she fulfilled her literary  ambitions. She wrote a volume of poetry with her sisters (Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell, 1846) and two novels. Agnes Grey, based upon her experiences as a governess, was published in 1847. Her second and last novel, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, which is considered to be one of the first sustained feminist novels, appeared in 1848. Anne's life was cut short when she died of pulmonary tuberculosis at the age of 29.
