• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

The other other Brontë sister.

Anne Brontë was the youngest of the three writing Brontë sisters, and the one who most people forget about. Charlotte wrote Jane Eyre (and some other books that get much less love); Emily wrote Wuthering Heights (and some much less melodramatic poetry); but Anne's books are the polar opposite of both. Bleaker than Charlotte (and, in fairness, Charlotte could get pretty bleak) and more prosaic than Emily, Anne's popularity has unfairly waned in comparison with her sisters'.

She wrote only two novels, under the name of Acton Bell (and a volume of poetry in collaboration with her sisters):

Despite having such a small list of works, her work was influential in English literature, making her a case of Short-Lived, Big Impact.
