Anne Bronte's second and last novel was widely and contentiously reviewed upon its 1848 publication, in part because its subject matter domestic violence, alcoholism, women's rights, and universal salvation was so controversial.

The tale unfolds through a series of letters between two friends as one man learns more about Helen Huntingdon and the past that brought this young painter and single mother to Wildfell Hall.

Powerfully plotted and unconventionally structured, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is now considered to be a classic of Victorian literature. This Broadview Edition includes a critical introduction that situates the novel in significant Victorian debates, and provides appendices that make clear Bronte's intellectual inheritance from important eighteenth-century writers such as Hannah More and Mary Wollstonecraft.

Material on temperance, education, childrearing, and nineteenth-century women artists is also included in the appendices.
