Mr. Charlotte Bronte by Alan Adamson
Using recent scholarship and new material, Alan Adamson’s biography of Arthur Bell Nicholls, Charlotte Bronte’s husband, paints a picture of Nicholls’ family, education, and early life in Ireland and explores why Bronte, at first cool and often hostile towards him, came to respect and love him. The book also examines how Bronte’s father grew to rely on Nicholls after her death. Drawing on Nicholls’ correspondence with, among others, Elizabeth Gaskell, Ellen Nussey and Harriet Martineau, Mr Charlotte Bronte: The Life of Arthur Bell Nicholls presents a compelling picture of Nicholls’ efforts to emphasize Bronte’s literary reputation and curtail speculation about her private life.
