Anne Brönte, an English novelist, the youngest of the three famous sisters, who began her literary ventures in 1846 with in a book of poems, by Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell, which names distinguished the identity of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brönte.

The failure of the poems did not deter the authors from further effort, for they had each a novel to dispose of.

Anne wrote two stories, Agnes Gray and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, and as a hymn writer she still has a place in most religious communities, though she does not hold the place high of her two sisters.
