The Brontë family comprises three of the nineteenth century's greatest female writers – Emily Brontë (1818-48), creator of Wuthering Heights; Charlotte Brontë (1816-55), author of Jane Eyre; and Anne Brontë (1820-49), writer of The Tenant of Wildfell Hall – together with their brother, the painter-poet Patrick Branwell Brontë (1817-48).
Each Brontë sibling has her or his distinct voice, but their poems share common themes about unrequited love, the persistence of memory, physical and intellectual isolation, loneliness, the loss of loved ones, the longing for home and the power and beauty of nature.

A.E. and R.C.
A Death Scene
Fall, Leaves, Fall
I am the only being whose doom
If grief for grief can touch thee
Love is like the wild rose briar
The night is darkening round me
No coward soul is mine

O Thou, whose beams were most withdrawn
Oh, all our cares
