Shirley (Wordsworth Classics)
CITESTE MAI MULT
The novel is set in a period of social and political ferment, featuring class disenfranchisement, the drama of Luddite machine-breaking, and the divisive effects of the Napoleonic Wars. But Charlotte Brontes particular strength lies in exploring the hidden psychological drama of love, loss and the quest for identity. Personal and public agitation are brought together against the dramatic backdrop of her native Yorkshire.
As always, Bronte challenges convention, exploring the limitations of social justice whilst telling not one but two love stories.
