A Inquilina de Wildfell Hall
I’m reading Jane Eyre and I can understand it fine. I read a lot and I’m top English set. Jeanine I think you will be able to understand it. If you want to start with a smaller book, a very good one is “Agnes Grey,” by Anne Bronte. Another really …more I think you will be able to understand it.
Both books are wonderful. One of my favs when I was younger, is a lesser-known book, “Work,” by Louisa May Alcott, which is about a young woman’s search for meaningful life through work.
In those days, it was extremely hard for women to find work, because of the rampant sexism then. I have one bit of advice. Something I did not like to do when I was in high school, was read the introductions to these books. Always read the intros. It will give you so much insight into the meanings, usually multiple meanings, of the stories. It makes reading the stories so much more enjoyable.
Here is a link to a list of 20 lesser-known classics, by female writers. I’m familiar with a couple, but will try to read the others, too.

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall – Wikipedia
In the second, Branwell came to work as well and became intimately involved with the wife of the house, having an affair and all the disgrace that came with that. Anne had been reasonably happy in that position and had to leave because of Branwell’s actions. Anne had a more worldly experience of life than either of her sisters, especially Emily. While what she wrote here was only partly from personal witness, Anne knew more of the lives of her so-called betters than might be imagined when looking at the general notion of the sister’s lives.
For a book that is almost completely from her own experience, I’d recommend Agnes Grey about a governess and how awful life could be for governesses. See all 8 questions about A Inquilina de Wildfell Hall…. Lists with This Book. Ovakve knjige jednostavno nisu za mene.
View all 4 comments. At the end of this book your only desire is to line up all the characters against a wall and shoot them including the ones who died en route – exhume them, prop them up. Did writers have editors in the s? There is simply no excuse for this amount of lard. Yet that is the least of the book’s problems.

We’re supposed to admire characters who are insufferable; supposed to revere the character of a woman who shows severe symptoms of battered wife syndrome, and feeds her 4 year old son wine, brandy, and laa spirits inquilkna with “tartar emetic” a substance that induces vomiting so he doesn’t develop a taste for alcohol; supposed to excuse the narrator suddenly whipping a man he thinks is courting the woman he’s got the hots for.
The first pages were okay, but ultimately this is a big pile of crap. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I mean, okay, probably. Still, it happens sometimes, as is the case with The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. I anticipated a ship and strong characters and some subtle and witty social commentary. Let me just say: Now, obviously, the book is well-written blah blah blah. Small towns being what they are, gossip abounds about what has brought Mrs.
Graham here with her child and why she lives as she does. Gilbert gives no shits, because she is beautiful and he is in lurve. When people try to tell her what she should do or how she should raise her child, she shuts them down right quick. She seemed intelligent and strong and like she was fighting the system. Gilbert confesses his love for Helen, and for some damn reason she says she likes him too.
Then he stomps over and gets all shirty with her, and, rather than being offended by his so-called unshakable love, she gives him her diary, so that he can read it and understand why they cannot be together.
This is where the book hits a wall. A wall I hung on for literal months. Gilbert proceeds to transcribe the whole fucking diary and mail it in letters to the friend the whole book is written to. It took me months to read this book. I can read one or two books a day, but most every page of this felt like torture.
I do sympathize with her plight. That absolutely sucks for sure. Her diary really could have been summarized in twenty to fifty pages without a loss, but, no, you get every boring detail inqui,ina her life.
La inquilina de Wildfell Hall — Reader Q&A
And she ends up taking care of her incredibly sick husband, who is dying of dissolution basically. This book is pretty much a PSA about the dangers of drinking, sex, and over-indulgence. The husband conveniently dies, and eventually the two of them wed. As much as I wanted to love this classic, I feel like the storytelling drags on endlessly and ineffectively, and that the plot ends up resorting to lazy plot points.

I realise the appeal is to engage in the dramatics and the relationships of the characters whilst thinking about the social commentary that seems to be peppered atop the play. I guess at the time of publication you could read this and be entertained because there was quite literally nothing else to do in your free time other than play with a hoop and stick.
Where is an abridgment when you need one?!?! This was truly an exercise in patience and frustration. I have also read Jane Eyre and feel that I have fulfilled my Bronte quota. It is difficult to fathom that Helen went back to nurse her husband.
Even more unfathomable was the minute the horrible monster died Markham did not immediately hurl himself at Helen to renew his voracious love and desire to marry. The minute that did not happen my goose was cooked. I felt that Anne writing from a male perspective was fine but the story was too long and frustrating for my taste. After 8 weeks of marriage…Helen realizes her relationship is a mistake.
After pages I realized…reading this book is a mistake. I endured part 1 intro Gilbert and Helen I skimmed through part 2 diary I’ve read this classic. What did I learn from this novel? This book was a terrible drudge. It felt like one long whine. There was nothing I liked at all about the holier-than-thou Helen Huntingdon. I actually felt sorry for her reprobate husband not really. Give me an unlikable, unvirtuous even villanous protagonist like Becky Sharp or Scarlet O’Hara any day.
I suppose it is an exemplary treatise arguing for more favorable divorce laws, which the Victorians had to fight long and hard for, but then why oh why does Helen go and get married again? I fin This book was a terrible drudge.
I find Trollope a much more convincing feminist than the Bronte sisters.
