An exhibition to celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of Emily Bronte.
Emily Brontë is one of the greatest writers in English literature and yet very little is actually known about her.
To mark the bicentenary of her birth, this exhibition invites a number of well known Emily admirers to share their own fascination with her life and work.
Specially commissioned contributions from Maxine Peake, Lily Cole and Helen Oyeyemi amongst others result in a thought-provoking selection of Emily’s possessions, writing and artwork as well as some of the well loved household objects she used daily.
These personal responses to Emily acknowledge the gaps in our understanding about this intriguing writer, but also encourage fresh perspectives on her life and work.
