There is an extremely physical feeling to Isabelle Greenburg’s art in “Glass Town: The Imaginary World of the Brontës. She wrote of the pain she felt at wrenching herself from her 'friends' and venturing into lands unknown". The warring brothers would later reappear in Charlotte Brontë’s novel The Professor (published 1857) as the Crimsworths. Valente’s young-adult fiction novel The Glass Town Game (2017), [27] "Glass Town turns into a Narnia-like world of its own, and the Brontës find themselves pulled through into their own creation". The one where the Bronte siblings, Charlotte, Emily, Anne and their brother Branwell, live a life sequestered from the rest of the world trapped like “potatoes in a dark cellar.

He is an accomplished horseman and a respected field marshal in the Angrian army whose troops come to Zamorna’s aid during the Angrian civil a fascinating piece which mixes reality and fantasy, and records Charlotte fretting over Branwell’s treatment of Mary. In this, it has almost a Magic Realism touch to it, as the lines between reality and the imagination become blurred. At one point in the juvenilia, she is abandoned and rejected by Zamorna who desires revenge on her father and is sent to Alnwick where she is killed off by Branwell whilst, in reality, Charlotte was away at school. On reaching the shores of West Africa, the Twelves (as the company is known) set up a colonial outpost, and lay claim to land as their own.

One of the Twelves, Arthur Wellesley, is chosen by the British to lead troops against the Emperor Napoleon.

Existing versions [ edit ] Charlotte Brontë's manuscript The Foundling (1833) is part of the British Library's collection. First of all, if you would like information to the background and stories which form the Brontë juvenilia canon then you can find many posts right here on Brontë Babe Blog covering these aspects.

In the manuscript The History of the Young Men (1830–31) by Branwell Brontë, Branwell chronicled the establishment of the Glass Town Federation colony by "twelve adventurers who set sail for West Africa" from his persona of Glass Town historian Captain John Bud. Henry Hastings (Captain) – Originally a much used pseudonym of Branwell Brontë, Henry Hastings originates as a soldier, poet, and historian of Angria, however, by the time he features in Charlotte’s novelette, Henry Hastings (1839), he is a disgraced murderer seeking to evade is not until 1834, the siblings' new kingdom Angria, and Zamorna's subsequent marriage to Northangerland's daughter, Mary, that the duo's incredible dynamic is fully unleashed.
