Sanctuary

Edric, Robert, 1956- author

Haworth, West Yorkshire, 1848. Following a succession of defeats and failures in his professional and personal life, Branwell Brontë - unexhibited artist, unacknowledged writer, sacked railwayman, disgraced tutor and spurned lover - found himself back in Haworth Parsonage, foundering and directionless, and surrounded by his father and his three sisters, whose own pseudonymous successes - allegedly kept secret from him - were only then becoming apparent. Struggling against the constraints and strictures of these claustrophobic surroundings, and in an effort to buttress himself against the disintegration and collapse of his intolerable and desperate existence, Branwell turned increasingly to the drugs, alcohol and self-delusion which already played an increasingly large part of his short, unhappy life
