Kathleen Constable's ambitious work A Stranger Within the Gates investigates fully Bront''s Irish heritage and the way in which it is reflected in her literary endeavours, including Jane Eyre and Shirley. Constable draws on primary sources to illuminate the relations of Ireland and England, then gives a conclusive literary background of the Bront' family.

Industry Reviews

... the meticulous weaving into the text of the author's hypotheses on the Irish dimension in the Brontes' work, the influences of colonialism and post-colonialism and the Big House tradition make it a very interesting read... The author is enthusiastic, and a refreshing love of her subject shines through... This book should find its place on the shelves of Bronte scholars everywhere.
