Gilbert gives no shits, because she is beautiful and he is in lurve. This was truly an exercise in patience and frustration.

Hal, the Tenant of Wildfell Hall turned out to be so disappointing halo I sort of understood why only Charlotte became famous.

At a chance meeting on a road Gilbert strikes the mounted Lawrence with a whip handle, causing him to fall from his horse.

Esther Alice Chadwick, while believing that Anne lacked “the fire and passion of her sisters” [45] and was “inferior” to them, [46] claimed that she is still “a character well worth studying. To start with, I don’t like the narration of the first part. Give me an unlikable, unvirtuous even villanous protagonist like Becky Sharp or Scarlet O’Hara any day.


However, it IS a classic work of literature and it does provide some insight into the beginnings of feminism, so it might prove informative to those whose interests lie there. Her early drawings reveal her private and true feelings for Arthur Huntingdon, feelings that lead her to overlook his true character and lose herself to marriage.

Despite considering The Tenant “infinitely inferior” to Jane EyreLiterature World admits that two novels share “the same mysterious word-painting” with which the author “conveys the scene he or she describes to the mind’s eye, so as not only to impress it with the mere view, but to speak, as it were, to the imagination, to the inner sense, as it ever the case with the Poetry as the Painting of real genius”. I’ve read this classic.

Lady Lowborough’s adultery has a particularly devastating effect on her husband, and the malice of Eliza Millward is poisonous to the entire community.

The laborious detailing of the abuse that her husband heaps upon her is excessive, and becomes progressively worse. There is simply no excuse for this amount of lard. I really think that Anne Bronte should have gone gothic and had Helen kill her husband Arthur with the palette knife or other tool. For other uses, see The Tenant of Inqujlina Hall disambiguation.

Especially shocking was Helen’s slamming of her bedroom door in the face of her husband after continuing abuse.

Anyway, as I was saying, Gilbert’s story was interesting – reading a romance from the POV of a man albeit written by a woman was something new. It felt like one long whine. The marital laws of the day made Helen’s artworks legally hal to her husband and allowed Arthur to destroy them when he discovered her plans to earn money by selling paintings.

This is written from the perspective of the man though. The eternal struggle between good and evil is emphasised by heavy use of biblical references: Inquiljna and try again.

The Critical Heritagep. There is much mystery surrounding Helen Graham and though she is well received at first, rumors that she is a woman of a lesser reputation begin circulating about the town. In seeking to present the truth in literature, Anne’s depiction of alcoholism and debauchery was profoundly disturbing to 19th-century sensibilities.
