Sophie Franklin

Charlotte Brontë in the 21st Century.

Charlotte Brontë is undoubtedly one of English literature’s great writers and, 200 years after her birth, she’s still as relevant as she ever was. Sophie Franklin, author of Charlotte Brontë Revisited, takes an original and entertaining look at Charlotte through 21st-century eyes: exploring her feminism, fascination with human rights, her interest in the supernatural and her role as one of the original nature writers. Discover the unknown Charlotte Brontë!

Sophie Franklin is forging a successful academic career studying the lives of the Brontë sisters and their literary works. She has worked in an editorial capacity for a small publishing house and in bookselling, and is currently at the University of Durham, where she is researching aspects of Charlotte Brontë’s writing. This is Sophie’s first book.
