CHARLOTTE BRONTË: 200TH ANNIVERSARY
How did Charlotte overcome the prejudices of her time? What were the demons that drove Charlotte on, and that nearly destroyed her? Did she really burn a successor to 'Wuthering Heights' and suppress the publication of Anne's greatest novel for ten years, and if so why? We'll take a look at why Charlotte Brontë was such an important writer then, and why she remains so today.
