Branwell and the Anti-hero

13 Jun 2024

14:00 - 15:00

The Brontë Parsonage Museum

Through their lessons from their father, the Brontë children were led to support the great men of the Victorian period - with Charlotte naming her toy soldier after the Duke of Wellington. Branwell, however, did not adopt the same admiration and named his own soldier after the anti-hero, Napoleon.

This talk explores the impact of hero-worship in the early writing of Branwell and Charlotte.

Free with entry to the Museum and for residents in BD20, BD21, and BD22. No need to book.

Thursday Talks are delivered by our knowledgeable Museum staff.

This event will take place at the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth. Can't make it in person? No problem! We'll be running an online version of this Thursday Talk the same day at 7:30pm. Book for the online version of this event at our website.
