The Tenant offers a finely written plot with two well realized main characters,
one through letters and the other via diary entries.

Unfortunately, the episodes of catering to all those insufferable men and the overlong diary
made for interminable boredom.

As well, the horrific beating of a former friend was both unwelcome and improbable. ( )

the worst length:interesting ratio of any novel I've read. three stars for brontë's turn of phrase and description of the natural world. everything else - no. ( )

Gripping, scandalous and quite ahead of its time. ( )

Anne Brontë was an author capable of producing vivid scenes and believable characters. You can picture everything clearly. owing to Anne’s superb writing skills. I consider this woman to be a genius.

This is the first novel I read with a twin narrative. To begin with, we have first-person narration from the lead male character Gilbert Markham, followed by the first-person narrative of the lead female character Helen Graham/Huntingdon, and finally it’s back to Markham again. This approach works incredibly well.

Anne shows – and mean “shows”, not “tells” – us the hearts and minds of these two principle characters. You feel what they feel; see what they see. You sense the oppression of being in a home where you can’t be happy, or even at ease. This is one of few books I’ve read that has left strong impressions of certain scenes in my mind like memories.

The way this gifted author conveys emotion is impeccable. Sometimes it’s a simple thing, like showing Helen’s annoyance with Gilbert as she flicks through some pages without reading them – creative writing at its best.

This is essentially a love story, but it has great depth, and is by no means your average boy-meets-girl story. Lots of conflict and heartache feature along the way.

The theme of drinking too much is didactic but this in no way proves irritating to a modern reader – not to this one, anyway. Anyone familiar enough with Brontë history will know that Anne’s brother died through his addiction to drink, so it’s understandable that she’d want to dissuade others from following the same path via the means she knows best – her pen. Again, this doesn’t detract from the story. In fact, it strengthens it.

The “bad boys” of the story are led by Arthur Huntingdon. Arthur is a despicable character, to whom it’s hard to feel any sympathy for. Same can be said for his cohort Grimsby. Hargrave is more likable, but having said that, he’s still something of a sly creep. Hattersley, on the other hand, I found rather likable, especially as Helen’s narrative progresses.

I first read “The Tenant of Wildfell Hall” in 2010 as part of a module during the second year of my BA degree. All the books I’d studied beforehand paled compared to this literary masterpiece. I was so absorbed by it that I chose this and Charlotte Brontë’s “Villette” as my essay for the module’s assessment, which meant reading both these books a second time only a few months after my first reading. This was no chore.

Ten years after reading “The Tenant of Wildfell Hall” for a second time, I decided to pay tribute to Anne Brontë on her 200th birthday in January 2020 by reading it again. This is one of few books I’ve read more than twice (not counting the likes of Mr Men stories, which I read repeatedly when I was a boy). Pleased to say that I once again enjoyed my experience of this classic novel.

When some people talk about the Brontë sisters, they refer to Anne as “the other one”. I refer to Anne as “the best one”. Her writing style is notably different to her sisters Charlotte and Emily, who both write romantic fiction. Anne was a realist author, and a damn good one at that. ( )

This book is so adorably, painfully, frustratingly Hufflepuff. The good folks at The Toast knew what they were about when they sorted Anne Bronte into that esteemed Hogwarts House. This is an interesting book with sporadic plotting and framing, but a worthwhile read, nonetheless. I would definitely choose to spend class time on this over Wuthering Heights ANY DAY. ( )

"The reader of Acton Bell gains no enlarged view of mankind, giving a healthy action to his sympathies, but is confined to a narrow space of life, and held down, as it were, by main force, to witness the wolfish side of his nature literally and logically set forth."

[English] society owes thanks, not sneers, to those who dare to shew her the image of her own ugly, hypocritical visage".
 
"...like the fatal melody of the siren's song, its very perfections render it more dangerous, and therefore more carefully to be avoided."

To J. Halford, Esq.

Dear Halford,

When we were together last, you gave me a very particular and interesting account of the most remarkable occurrences of your early life, previous to our acquaintance; and then you requested a return of confidence from me.
