Anne Brontë may be less famous than her sisters, but contemporary popular culture still makes many knowing allusions to her. This article delineates the origins and development of some of the key motifs in representations of the writer’s life, death and literary imagination. Investigating the reasons for this writer's continuous marginalisation, this examination also explores the ways in which the critical discourse parallels the writer’s re-emergence in popular culture as a feminist figure.
