The author: Currer Bell, a pseudonym of the acclaimed English author Charlotte Brontë, used this nom de plume to ensure that her work would be taken seriously in a time when female authors were often dismissed or ignored.
Charlotte Brontë (21 April 1816 – 31 March 1855) was an English novelist and poet, the eldest of the three Brontë sisters who survived into adulthood and whose novels became classics of English literature.
