Description
A mysterious young widow calling herself Helen Graham arrives at Wildfell Hall and immediately arouses her new neighbors' suspicions with her unconventional opinions and the attention she draws from the local bachelors. One of her admirers, a farmer named Gilbert Markham, readily offers his friendship but has second thoughts about Helen's reclusive conduct and the gossip it excites. When Helen allows Gilbert to read her diary, he discovers the reason behind her secretive behavior - a disastrous marriage to a ne'er-do-well, whom she ultimately flees in defiance of the legal lack of rights for wives. An instant bestseller upon publication under the pseudonym Acton Bell, Anne Bront'͡s book was later suppressed by her eldest surviving sister, Charlotte, because of its unorthodox content. Written with a realism that scandalized critics in its portrayal of adultery, alcoholism, and marital discord, this compelling tale has been hailed as one of the first major works of feminist literature.

With her small son, Arthur, she adopts an assumed name and makes her living as a painter. The inconvenience of the house is outweighed by the fact that she and Arthur are removed from her drunken, degenerate husband.Although the house is isolated, she seeks to avoid the attentions of the neighbors. However, it is difficult to do so. All too soon she becomes an object of speculation, then cruel gossip. Narrated by her neighbor Gilbert Markham, and from the pages of her own diary, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall portrays Helen's struggle for independence in a time when law and society defined a married woman as her husband's property., In The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Anne Bront ͡created a strong, modern heroine who challenged the prevailing morals and politics of the Victorian era. When Helen Graham shut her bedroom door on her abusive, drunken husband, it was a door-slam heard around the world. Escaping to Wildfell Hall after a loveless marriage, Helen, the mysterious tenant, lives in quiet seclusion, but her reclusive nature quickly becomes the subject of local gossip.

Considered one of the first feminist novels because it challenged the social norms of the Victorian era, "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall" is essentially a romantic novel which is chiefly concerned with the relationship between Gilbert Markham, a prosperous farmer, and the mysterious widow Mrs. Helen Graham, who takes up residence in the nearby tumbledown mansion of Wildfell Hall. A classic of the Victorian era, "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall" is a must read for fans of the Bronte sisters., Read by Alex Jennings, Jenny Agutter., Read by Jenny Agutter and Alex Jennings., Read by Nadia May., Read by Piers Wehner, Katy Carmichael., The Tenant of Wildfell Hall challenged the prevailing morals of the Victorian era. Especially shocking, at the time, was Helen's slamming of her bedroom door in the face of her husband, thereby overturning the sexual politics. It is considered to be one of the first feminist novels. The main character, Helen, is spirited and forthright, unafraid to speak to the men in her life with frankness. Anne Bront ͡portrays this as desirable, compared to the meekness of Milicent, who is trampled and ignored by her unrepentant husband. Vice is not unique to the men, however; Lady Lowborough's adultery has a particularly devastating effect on her husband, and the malice of Eliza Millward is poisonous to the entire community., The bleak Yorkshire moors and the presence of an old mansion set the stage for a tragedy that reveals the secret violence of a battered wife in a society considered well mannered., The most controversial of the Bronte sisters' novels, Anne Bronte's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is the story of Helen Graham, a woman who, unique for her time, acts in her own best interest to rise above her personal circumstances to secure a better life for her son. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is a powerful and gripping story of oppression, bravery, and love., The tenant of Wildfell Hall, The tenant of Wildfell HallAnne Bronte., The tenant of Wildfell HallAnne Brontë., Triangles (Interpersonal relations), Unabridged., Wehner, Piers,narrator., Written by Anne Bronte, the youngest of the famous Bronte sisters, this classic romantic novel has been enjoyed by readers around the world for over 160 years.
