This volume, first published in 1997, contains all of Patrick Branwell Brontë’s known writings, excluding his letters, from 1827 to 1833. This title primarily focuses on the creation of the Glass Town Confederacy and on the emergence of Rouge/Alexander Percy/Ellrington as Branwell’s chief character. All of the texts in this edition are based on Neufeldt’s own transcriptions of the manuscripts, or, where the manuscript is unavailable, on the most reliable accessible text. This edition serves as a record for the growth and development of Branwell’s writing, and it is hoped that it will help to dispel some of the myths and misconceptions that have become associated with Branwell’s name. This book will be of interest to students of English Literature.
