About Author

Charlotte Bronte

In Thornton, West Yorkshire, on April 21, 1816, Charlotte Brontë was born. She was the third of six children born to Irish Anglican clergyman Patrick Brontë (formerly Brunty) and Maria (née Branwell). Of her three sisters, she was the eldest who lived to adulthood. Publishers rejected her first book, The Professor, but her second book Jane Eyre was published in 1847. Brontë began writing poems at the age of 13 and went on to produce more than 200 poems. A lot of her poems were "published" in their home-made magazine Branwell's Blackwood's Magazine, and concerned the imaginary world of Glass Town. However, Emily and Anne "seceded" from the Glass Town Confederacy starting in 1831 to create a "spin-off" organization named Gondal, which featured many of their poems. Charlotte Brontë wed her father's curate, Arthur Bell Nicholls, in 1853. By all accounts, her marriage was a success, and she discovered a brand-new kind of happiness. Brontë passed away on March 31, 1855, three weeks before turning 39. According to biographers, she suffered from terrible morning sickness or hyperemesis gravidarum, which caused her to vomit a lot, which led to dehydration and malnutrition. Her body was buried in the family vault in the Church of St Michael and All Angels at Haworth.
