Reprint. Originally published: Basingstoke: Macmillan, 1998.

In this text, Edward Chitham explores the sources of Emily Bronte's inspiration and the ways in which she composed her poetry and her one major novel.

This study discusses the probable content of her unfinished second novel and also makes use of new discoveries to show that Emily Bronte was not only well read in the classics, but that she had also made her own translations of Virgil and Horace.

It also gives a foreground of the publishing history of "Wuthering Heights", revealing how the original text was almost doubled in size from its first submission to a publishers and its final acceptance.

This book, published for the first time in paperback, should provide a fascinating insight into Emily Bronte's mind and working methods.
