The Brontes and Education PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Brontes and Education free pdf All the seven Bronte novels are concerned with education in both senses, that of upbringing as well as that of learning. The Bronte sisters all worked as teachers before they became published novelists. In spite of the prevalence of education in the sisters' lives and fiction, however, this is the first full-length book on the subject. Marianne Thormahlen explores how their representations of fictional teachers and schools engage with the intense debates on education in the nineteenth century, drawing on a wealth of documentary evidence about educational theory and practice in the lifetime of the Brontes. This study offers much new information both about the Brontes and their books and about the most urgent issue in early-nineteenth-century British social politics: the education of the people, of all classes and both sexes.
