About the Author:
Anne Brontë was born in 1820, the youngest of the Brontë family. She was educated at home in the Yorkshire village of Haworth, and later held two positions as a governess. Both of these positions proved difficult experiences, which inspired her first novel, Agnes Grey, in 1847. Agnes Grey was followed by The Tenant of Wildfell Hall in 1848, which critics now claim to be one of the first feminist novels.
Anne was also a prolific poet and In 1846 she published a book of poems with her sisters (OurBrontë BedtimeCandleboasts the first verse of Anne's poem, Night, on its label. Check it out here.)
Anne died of tuberculosis in 1849, aged twenty-nine.
