By: Catera Scott, Jasmin Miller, and Samantha Hatton Emily Brontë Biography Writing Style Bibliography Emily Bronte was born in 1818, July 30th. Growing up in Yorkshire, she was born the fifth child of six. She was sent to a school, but pulled out a year later when her two older sisters died because of the harsh conditions. Her oldest sister Catherine found out Emily liked to write when she went through her stuff. Asking her to collaborate on poems, this was around the time Wuthering Heights began to be written. In 1847 Emily publishes Wuthering Heights, and a year late on the 19th of December 1848 she dies. Amazingly, Emily didn't like to be considered an author. She was a shy person who loved to stay at home and complete work from there. She was very kind, making sure her alcoholic brother got home when he was drunk and even moving in with a servant to help them heal when they broke their ankle. She was not a typical Victorian woman, shooting guns and having different outlooks on religion. Her style is seen as very pathetic and condescending. She thinks mankind is awful, and cruel; exploring on their natural want to succeed and do anything to get to their goal. She likes to reference religions a lot, making angels as a saviour for mankind. However, she does have a kind side. Some early poems reveal her intense like for nature, whether it be the summer breeze to explaining the English countryside. Winnifrith, Tom. "Emily (Jane) Bronte." Victorian Novelists Before 1885.

world mythical world with her sister Anna
called Gondal. It was a response to a world her sister
and brother made up called Angria. Their father was reserved and since their mother died a year after Emily was born they often wrote to keep themselves entertained.
Her poems ranged from light to extremely dark; dealing with the horrible reality of human kind to the beauty of nature. She liked to talk about the horrors of religion, and how man will often make up their idea of God to benefit themselves. Wuthering Heights The only book Emily wrote. Was rejected to be published often, being for its strange approach on love at the time. It has become a classic over the years, reaching popularity when the author died.
It's about a love story between Catherine and Heathcliff. Poem Examples Sleep brings no hope to me;
In sounder sleep they come.
And with their doleful imagery
Deepen the gloom

Sleep brings no friend to me
To soothe and aid to bear;
They all gaze, oh, how scornfully,
And I despair.

Sleep brings no wish to knit
My harassed heart beneath:
My only wish is to forget
In the sleep of death.
