In the Reading Room: Tre Anime Luminose Tra Le Nebbie Nordiche, an Italian Biography of the Brontë Family by Giorgina Sonnino

One of the books that kept us company in this cold pre-Christmas time is the Brontё family biography by the Italian author Giorgina Sonnino “Tre Anime Luminose Fra Le Nebbie Nordiche”, written in 1903 and out of sale for years before flower-ed Edition decided to republish it in a delicate, plain edition.

After reading every single page, we’re finally ready to add this biography to the library of our blog, and give our personal opinion about this lovely work that has very little to do with the cold and didactic style that many other biographies have.

What’s also very pleasant in Giorgia Sonnino’s book, is the clear and simple manner she uses to tell every Brontё story- in this peculiar biography in fact, there is no boring display of information but each line conceals the strong interest of the author who draws the reader into the lives of these real characters, which are almost depicted as the protagonists of the most fascinating novel.

We really enjoyed this book, which is part of the very little Italian material written on the Brontё sisters’ lives, and flower-ed did an amazing job recovering it. This is an interesting book for all those who want to know more about the Brontё family by reading a pleasant and fascinating book- best to be enjoyed on a cold winter night, while having a hot cuppa!
