Anne Bronte (1820-1849) was an English novelist and poet who didn't live long enough to give the world all she could have, but she did write Agnes Grey**, which is now generally considered a classic in English and Western literature.**
Of all the sisters' works, it is Emily's Wuthering Heights that has aged the best over time, continuing to retain its place as a classic of English literature. Anne's Agnes Grey was written as a Volume III to be packaged with Wuthering Heights and was finished within a year of Emily's novel. Anne is somewhat overshadowed today by her more famous sisters, Charlotte, who wrote Jane Eyre; and Emily with Wuthering Heights. But Anne was a great writer in her own right, and she wrote in a sharper, more realistic style than her two sisters, who focused on romantic prose.
