Course Title: Bronte Family
Course Number: C2228376
Course Description: The literary Bronte family have often been portrayed as consisting of a repressive father, a drunken, dissolute son and three daughters who produced novels labelled 'scandalous' by some critics and members of the reading public. Their family home, Haworth Parsonage in Yorkshire, is one of Britain's most visited literary shrines and the novels written by Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte have never been out of print since they were first published in 1847. The family's story has elements of tragedy, but includes inspiring accounts of triumph over adversity and disadvantage. We also look at some more recent research findings about the family, and consider male members of the family who have often been portrayed in a negative light. Are these portrayals correct - or were they victims rather than villains? Course members definitely do not need to have read any of the Bronte novels, nor to have watched any TV adaptations of their work in order to participate in this course.
