From the transcendent beauty of nature observed on the Yorkshire moors to fierce and forceful confrontations of mortality, Emily Brontes poems are powerful and passionate works that eloquently elaborate upon her sister Charlottes description of her as “a solitude-loving raven, no gentle dove”. While only twenty-one of Emily Brontes poems were published in her lifetime, her poetic oeuvre is rich and varied, and not only includes visionary poems such as `No Coward Soul Is Mine and `Remembrance, but also features the poems that describe the imagined realm of Gondal and its inhabitants, which she created with her sister Anne.
