We Are Three Sisters



Blake Morrison


Nick Hern Books

“Well-researched... beautifully intact, and speaks absolutely to the constrained world the Brontës inhabited.” -- Telegraph

“Morrison's use of the Three Sisters template is as intelligent as it is daring... a finely tuned piece.” -- Guardian

“Goes some way to setting right the many myths and easy answers that seem to have grown round the Brontë family... with its honest and vigorous humour, it banishes the gloom.” -- Stage

Poet, playwright and novelist Blake Morrison evokes the lives of the Brontë sisters, with a nod to Chekhov’s Three Sisters.

Against the backdrop of a windswept northern village, three remarkable young women live their lives brightly.

In Haworth in the 1840s, in a gloomy parsonage, where there are neither curtains nor comforts, Charlotte, Anne and Emily Brontë light up their world with outspoken wit, aspirations, dreams and ideas. And throughout their confined lives intensely lived… they write.

With a touch of poetic licence, Morrison shows us the overwhelming humanity, charged emotions and brooding unease which characterise the Brontë household - and that of Chekhov's Three Sisters.
