Excellent Women - Charlotte Bronte: An Anglican Imagination
Thursday, 14th June 2018 | 6.30pm - 7.45pm | Poets' Corner
The 19th century was a time when the novel came of age. Many of the era’s female novelists responded in powerful and sophisticated ways to the era’s preoccupation with issues of belief and religious practice.
Join us for this series of lectures asking how three authors – Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte and Charlotte M. Yonge – use fiction to explore questions of faith, morality and personal adherence to the Church of England.
In this second lecture, Dr Sara L. Pearson, Trinity Western University, Canada, discusses the work of Charlotte Bronte (1816 – 1855).
The series draws in part on the collection of essays Anglican Women Novelists: Charlotte Bronte to P.D. James, ed. Judith Maltby and Alison Shell (Bloomsbury, forthcoming 2019).
