Fannie Elizabeth Ratchford presents a cycle of eighty-four poems by Emily Jane Bronte, for the first time arranged in logical sequence. This novel in verse, which Emily wrote about her beloved mystical kingdom of Gondal and its ruler, Augusta Geraldine Almeda, who brought tragedy to those who loved her. This Gothic romance reminds me of the works of Byron. This is the first work I've read by any of the Bronte sisters, except for Charlotte. But I now plan to seek out others.
