While only twenty-one of Emily Bronte's 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.
Emily Bronte (1818-48) was the middle of the three famous Bronte sisters. Raised on the Yorkshire moors by her clergyman father, Emily spent her childhood inventing and writing about imaginary worlds with her siblings. Wuthering Heights was her only novel, for which she enjoyed much fame in her lifetime. She died of tuberculosis in 1848, after having refused all medical treatment.
My sister Emily loved the moors. Flowers brighter than the rose bloomed in the blackest of the heath for her; out of a sullen hollow in a livid hillside her mind could make an Eden. -- Charlotte Bronte
