Struggling manufacturer Robert Moore considers marriage to the wealthy and independent Shirley Keeldar, yet his heart lies with his cousin Caroline. Shirley, meanwhile, is in love with Robertas brother, an impoverished tutor. As industrial unrest builds to a potentially fatal pitch, can the four be reconciled?… (mais)

    Miss Miles: or, A Tale of Yorkshire Life 60 Years Ago por Mary Taylor (CurrerBell)
    CurrerBell: Miss Miles, published in 1890 and centered on "Brontë country" in Yorkshire in the 1830s, was authored by Mary Taylor, who along with Ellen Nussey was one of Charlotte Brontë's two best friends from boarding-school days. It addresses the "women's issue" with particular emphasis on Taylor's belief that women had a moral obligation to be self-supporting and not to rely on men. Taylor's "Radical Dissenter" response to the "Tory Anglicanism" of Shirley.… (mais)

This book is high key horrible and I fucking love it! Shirley is trans. End of review. ( )

If there was a 4 1/2 that is what I would have given this book. I really, really liked it but the last little part "less" good. The tension between Robert and Caroline was very intense but then when I figured it was going to work out and Shirley really liked Louis then I wasn't quite as absorbed... ( )

Charlotte Bronte was a gifted writer who had one great story to tell -- the story of self. She told that story best, and electrifyingly, in Jane Eyre, the story of an indomitable ego that chooses morality and personal integrity at any price. Her later books are sometimes-interesting, sometimes-not, reworkings of that theme. "Villette" has the integrated, appealing central character of JE, but succumbs to pathos. "Shirley" is full of interesting twists and turns, nearly all of which peter out, or worse. The subplot of populist rebellion against automating industrialism is interesting, but deflates as British military victory returns prosperity to the region. CB splits her female heroine into two women, demure Caroline and bold Shirley, who has what was then a man's name, and who is occasionally referenced with male pronouns and called "Captain Shirley." Caroline and Shirley clearly esteem and love each other, but this too goes wrong as the narrative requires classic marriage-plot denouements, with each proving unintentionally unsavory. Caroline's devotion to her leading man is creepily self-effacing, while Shirley's is even ickier, as she, her boyfriend, and CB all seem to agree that she will never live happily ever after unless and until she finds the man who can master and dominate her. The plot obliges, in a benevolent way that makes it clear this is not meant as irony. Anyone who thinks of CB as a feminist might want to read the last few chapters while hiding under a 19th century writing desk.

And yet . . . the book is worth reading. The frequent doses of great writing; the unflinchingly honest, and funny, insights into social foibles and clerical failings; the deeply resonant and empathetic portrayals of human loneliness and frustration all make it worthwhile. And what if CB, with her gender-bending, Luddite-channeling, transparently absurd love-is-submission happy ending, was groping toward something her early 19th century mind just wasn't ready for? ( )

The first chapter of Shirley ("Levitical") hooked me. Nineteenth-century Church of England politics? Yes, please! But the rest of the novel doesn't quite deliver, on that or any other score. Brontë's prose is so pleasant to read that I stayed engaged and ultimately persevered with the book over the course of a few months, but I don't think I'd repeat the experience; I just didn't care about the characters quite enough.

This was the second novel by Charlotte Bronte, but I didn't find this anywhere near as interesting as Jane Eyre (or indeed the other three Bronte novels by Emily and Anne). While set in an interesting historical period, the economic depression following the Napoleonic wars and the era of Luddite opposition to industrialisation, this was only a minor part of the backdrop and nowhere near as vivid as the description of industrial strife and economic hardship in Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South, which I read last autumn. The title character was not really the most prominent one (she wasn't mentioned until nearly a third of the way through) and I can't say I found any of the main quartet especially interesting, though there was some amusing sharp dialogue between Shirley and her uncle. The minor character of schoolboy Martin Yorke was also quite funny. Overall, definitely my least favourite Bronte novel. ( )

Of late years, an abundant shower of curates has fallen upon the north of England: they lie very thick on the hills; every parish has one or more of them; they are young enough to be very active, and ought to be doing a great deal of good.
Shirley was Charlotte Bronte's watershed. (Introduction)
