In search of Anne Brontë, Cornwall’s daughter, with Nick Holland
Anne Brontë was the youngest and in many ways the most revolutionary Brontë sister, challenging the conventions of her time. She died aged 29, but left behind two brilliant novels and a moving collection of poetry. Anne lost her Cornish mother when she was just one, but her Penzance-born aunt changed Anne’s life (and thereby literary history) forever. Nick Holland, her most recent biographer, tells her story.
