Emily Bronte was one of three sisters who became famous novelists. In this portrait by their brother Branwell, Emily stands between Anne (left) and Charlotte (right). Their lives and works are associated with the Yorkshire moors of England where they were born.
Emily wrote only one novel--her romantic masterpiece "Wuthering Heights". The immortal, passionate love of Catherine and Heathcliff is made believable by her vivid storytelling.
Her poetry, usually set in the moors, also reveals an enduring power. Here is one example,"Love and Friendship".
