This volume, first published in 1999, contains all of Patrick Branwell Brontë’s known writings, excluding his letters, from 1837 to 1848. This title primarily covers and depicts the end of the Angrian conflict, Branwell’s abandonment of the Angrian saga, and his attempts to establish himself as a published poet and a man of letters. 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.
