Poems of Solitude (Hesperus Poetry) by Emily Brontë, Helen Dunmore



The cheerful comforts of home, and the joys of memory and hope, form the background for an expression of inner fortitude in this moving book of solitude and sorrow. Despite the isolation of Haworth, the small Yorkshire village where she was raised, Emily Brontë manages to transcend her surroundings to give the universal themes of love, time, and death a thoroughly new and fascinating interpretation. Penned for her own consolation, and as a kind of shorthand of her soul, these poems—most of which were unpublished in her lifetime—reveal the depth and scope of her vision. Emily Brontë is the author of Wuthering Heights, one of the most popular romances of all time.
