Charlotte Bront‘ and Defensive Conduct

Janet Gezari seeks to revise our sense of Charlotte Bronte's life by turning attention from its familiar romantic circumstances to its less familiar practical circumstances. They reveal a woman more embattled, contentious, and resilient, though no less passionate, than the more familiar trembling soul.
