This new essay collection brings together some of the top BrontA scholars working today, as well as new critical voices, to examine the many layers of Anne BrontA 's fiction and other writings and to restore BrontA to her rightful place in literary history. Until very recently, BrontA 's literary fate has been to live in the critical shadow of her older sisters, Charlotte and Emily, in spite of the fact that her two published novels, Agnes Grey and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall were widely read and discussed during her lifetime. From a variety of fields-including psychology, religion, social criticism and literary tradition-the contributors to New Approaches to the Literary Art of Anne BrontA re-assess her works as those of an artist, which demand the rigorous scholarship and attention that they receive here.
