Celebrated British authoress, Charlotte Bronte is best-known for her novels which have achieved the status of world-famous classics. Marked by individuality, her writing style is outstanding for its exquisite sensibility, intense passion and zealous honesty.
In 1846, Charlotte Brontë and her sisters began publishing under assumed gender - ambiguous pen - names because of 'a vague impression that authoresses are liable to be looked on with prejudice. ' By 1849, all her siblings had died. The now well - known author of 'Jane Eyre' travelled to London and enjoyed the friendship of many writers and intellectuals. In 1854, she married. She and her unborn child died soon thereafter.
