A consideration of the way in which family life in the Haworth Parsonage became the inspiration for poems and novels regarded by many as the finest ever written. We will look at the life of the father, Patrick Bronte, repeatedly and erroneously depicted as cold and aloof, and his part in inspiring and encouraging his gifted daughters and self-destructive son. We will reflect on the way in which family, religious and literary influences fed the imagination of three devout spinsters inspiring them to write works of fierce, dangerous passion which outraged Victorian sensibilities.
Talk by Lynne Taylor-Gooby past principal at the Royal School Haslemere.
