Michael Stewart (Author)

Description

Michael Stewart has been captivated by the Brontes since he was a child, and has travelled all over the north of England in search of their lives and landscapes. Now, he'd like to invite you into the world as they would have seen it.

Following in the footsteps of the Brontes across meadow and moor, through village and town, award-winning writer Michael Stewart takes a series of inspirational walks through the lives and landscapes of the Bronte family, investigating the geographical and social features that shaped their work.

This is a literary study of both the social and natural history that has inspired writers and walkers, and the writings of a family that have touched readers for generations. Finally we get to understand the 'wild, windy moors' that Kate Bush sang about in 'Wuthering Heights', see the imposing halls that may have inspired Thornfield Hall in Jane Eyre , and learn about Bramwell's affair with a real life Mrs Robinson while treading the same landscapes. As well as describing in vivid detail the natural beauty of the moors and their surroundings, Walking the Invisible also encompasses the history of the north and the changing lives of those that have lived there.

'I want you to walk with me but to see through their eyes as I compare the times they lived in with the times we live in now.
Let's start in the village where they were born.
Put your boots on.'
