The story of the tragic Bronte family is familiar to many: the half-mad, repressive father, the drunken, drug-addicted wastrel of a brother, wild, romantic Emily, unrequited Anne and poor Charlotte. However, these are imaginary stereotypes, created by amateur biographers, such as Mrs Gaskell, who were primarily novelists and were attracted by the tale of an apparently doomed family of genius. Later biographers still repeat Mrs Gaskell's mistakes and have relied on bowdlerised texts published by T.J. Wise, a forger.

Not exactly what I expected, certainly overly definitive of the father & more than I ever wanted to read about him. Somewhat disappointed, as I was more interested in the three women.
