The Life of Charlotte Bronte
Gaskell was Charlotte's close friend in the last years of her life; after her death, she investigated Charlotte's childhood, family and writing. Her aim was to let Charlotte speak for herself through her letters, but she had a further goal: to defend her against the charge of "coarseness" leveled at her work. The result is one of the most atmospheric and perceptive biographies ever written, and a powerful tribute from one writer to another.
