Revised edition of this biography with a twist about Emily Bront , the subject of major film Emily starring Emma Mackey.
Bront scholar Claire O'Callaghan conjures a new image of Emily Bront and rehabilitates her reputation by exploring the themes of her life and work. We discover that Emily was a thoroughly modern woman.

Emily Bront occupies a special place in the English literary canon. And rightly so: the incomparable Wuthering Heights is a novel that has bewitched us for almost 200 years, and the character of Heathcliff is, perhaps, the ultimate romantic hero--and villain. But Emily herself remains an enigmatic figure, often portrayed as awkward, as a misanthrope, as no normal being. That's the conventional wisdom on Emily as a person, but is it accurate? Is it fair?

It's time for the real Emily Bront to please stand up.

Dr Claire O'Callaghan is a Lecturer in English in the School of Arts, English and Drama at Loughborough University in the UK, where her research focuses on Victorian and neo-Victorian literature and culture, with an emphasis on gender, sexuality, and queerness. She has published widely on these topics.
