Author's Bio (see also Wikipedia)
The eldest and most prolific of the literary Bronte sisters, Charlotte Bronte (1816-1855) combined definitive life experience and her strong imaginative powers to create such famous works as Jane Eyre, Villette, and Shirley. At first, Bronte, like her sisters, published her novels under a male pseudonym, her own being "Currer Bell." When her first novel, Jane Eyre, received considerable public attention, many tried to guess the true identity of the author, sure that no man could have so expertly captured Jane's female voice. Despite the adversities of family instability, personal tragedy, and ill-health, Charlotte Bronte is well-established to this day as one of the most brilliant female writers in literature, with her haunting settings, cleverly-woven mysteries, and compelling, multi-faceted characters burning brightly in the minds of generations of readers.
