The Brontës: 1820
“Brontë Country,” West Yorkshire (Part 2)

The windswept vegetation, bird and animal life, grey stone cottages, and isolated farms and villages of the Yorkshire moors play a central role in the Brontë novels. Despite their ostensibly exotic settings, a sense of the Yorkshire moorland also suffuses the Brontës' childhood sagas. These moorlands have been transformed by the Brontë sisters into one of the most famous literary landscapes in the English-speaking world.
