The most controversial of the Brontë sisters’ novels, Anne Brontë’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.
Considered to be one of the first feminist novels, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall was so controversial upon publication that Anne's sister, Charlotte, prevented its re-publication after Anne's death in 1849. The most popular of Anne's novels, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall has been adapted as two BBC television films and also a three-act opera.
