Portrait of Emily Brontë by her brother Bronwell Brontë.

Emily Brontë was one of three sisters, each of whom wrote works that have become famous. Her sisters were Charlotte Brontë and Anne Brontë. Ms Brontë was born in 1818; she died in 1849. She used the pseudonym Ellis Bell.

The poet Emily Dickinson chose one of Emily Brontë's poems, "No coward soul", for her own funeral.[1]


Emily Brontë's only novel was Wuthering Heights.

She also wrote poety, but very little of her personal writings have survived.
