“The Three Brontës” is a 1912 treatise on the Brontë sisters by Mary St. Clair. Within this volume Sinclair explores their lives, characters, and works in great detail, offering the reader a fascinating and informative glimpse into their unique world. The Brontës were a famous literary family during the nineteenth century synonymous with the West Riding area of Yorkshire, England. The sisters, Charlotte (1816–1855), Emily (1818–1848), and Anne (1820–1849), are now world-famous poets and novelists; and their father, Patrick Brontë (1777 – 1861), was also an author. Numerous novels produced by this family have since become classics of English literature. Mary Amelia St. Clair (1863 –1946), also known by the pen name May Sinclair, was a British writer, active suffragist, and member of the Woman Writers' Suffrage League. Other notable works by this author include: “Nakiketas and other poems” (1886), “Essays in Verse” (1892), and “Audrey Craven” (1897). Contents include: “Prefatory Note”, “Introduction”, “The Three Brontës”, “Appendix I”, and “Appendix II”. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this classic volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition for the enjoyment of literature lovers now and for years to come.

E M Forster

The five novels E.M.Forster published during his lifetime enjoyed a popularity and critical acclaim out of all proportion to this modest fictional output or the books' apparent pretensions: certainly since the publication of Howards End in 1910 he has been regarded almost without question as one of the foremost novelists of the century. Since his death in 1970 there has been no slackening of interest; the appearance of a comprehensive biography, an edition of his letters, a major critical edition of his works, and other scholarly and critical aids has given fresh impetus to the reassessment of his achievement. The present study provides a short account of Forster's life and career, followed by detailed discussion of his major writings. A final chapter considers his posthumous novel Maurice and the short stories. Although his most significant work belongs to the first quarter of the twentieth century, Forster's alliance of wit and seriousness, satiric comedy and moral insight, gives it a perennial freshness for new generations of students and readers.
