    Probably the most shocking of the Brontës' novels, this novel had an instant and phenomenal success and is widely considered to be one of the first sustained feminist novels. A mysterious widow, Mrs. Helen Graham, arrives at Wildfell Hall, a nearby old mansion. A source of curiosity for the small community, the reticent Helen and her young son Arthur are slowly drawn into the social circles of the village.

    i. Ski says: "A good story ruined by the narrator"
    "Incredible Journey. Poignant Read!"

    Story
    Would you listen to The Tenant of Wildfell Hall again? Why?

    Yes, to remind myself of the capacity for dignity and courage in difficult situations.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I am moved by the journey and courage of the heroine, Mrs. Graham -- a woman caught in an abusive marriage - that finally finds the courage to free herself and her child through dignity and art.


    What about Mary Sarah Agliotta’s performance did you like?

    The narrator captured the bittersweet emotions, gut-wrenching tensions and difficult realities of this time through her restrained passion and warmth of tone. She seemed to really understand what the characters were going through.


    If you could rename The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, what would you call it?

    Have no improvements on the title.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of my favorite classic books, though not so well known.
