Launch of the The Brontës in Brussels by Helen MacEwan, published by Peter Owen (UK). This lavishly illustrated guide gathers together information on Charlotte and Emily Brontë’s stay in Brussels in 1842-43 and makes it easy to identify the Brontë places – which, without help, can be quite a challenge! Apart from giving a biographical account of Charlotte’s and Emily’s stay at the Pensionnat, the book is abundantly illustrated, with over 90 pictures including many of 1840s Brussels. It includes a self-guided Brontë walk with detailed maps; extracts from Villette showing how the novel reflects Charlotte’s real-life experiences in Brussels; English translations of some of the sisters’ ‘Belgian essays’; and translations of Charlotte’s four moving letters to M. Heger.
