About The Book Shirley, Charlotte Brontes second novel, was published two years after Jane Eyre--on October 26, 1849. The writing of it was a tragedy. When the book was begun, her brother, Branwell, and her two sisters, Emily and Anne Bronte, were alive. When it was finished all were dead, and Charlotte was left alone with her aged father. In the character of Shirley Keeldar the novelist tried to depict her sister Emily as she would have been had she been placed in health and prosperity. Nearly all the characters were drawn from life, and drawn so vividly that they were recognised locally. Caroline Helstone was sketched from Ellen Nussey, Charlotte Brontes dearest friend, who furnished later much of the material for the best biographies of the novelist. Shirley fully sustained at the time of its publication, the reputation won through Jane Eyre- but under the test of time the story--owing, no doubt, to the conditions under which it was written--has not taken rank with that first-fruit of genius, Jane Eyre, or that consummation of genius, Villette.
