the West Riding of Yorkshire, England. The sisters, Charlotte (born 21 April 1816), Emily (born 30

July 1818), and Anne (born 17 January 1820), are well known as poets and novelists. They

originally published their poems and novels under the masculine pseudonyms Currer, Ellis, and

Acton Bell, following the custom of the times practised by female writers. Their stories

immediately attracted attention, although not always the best, for their passion and originality.

Charlotte's Jane Eyre was the first to know success, while Emily's Wuthering Heights, Anne's The

Tenant of Wildfell Hall and other works were later to be accepted as masterpieces of literature.
