Emily Brontë was a British writer, poet and novelist born in 1818 and died in 1848.

Emily was the fifth of six children in the Brontë family. After the death of her mother and two older sisters, her father, a clergyman, decided to give the other four children more freedom.

With Charlotte, Anne and Branwell, Emily began to write poems, plays and other novels.

Her only novel, Wuthering Heights, was published a year before her death in 1848. After her brother Branwell died of tuberculosis in September, she died of the same disease in December of the same year.
