The other Brontë novels
The first novel to be published was Shirley, in 1850. It was an adapted version – “imité de l’anglais par Old Nick” (P.E. Dauran Forgues). Old Nick later also did an imitation of Jane Eyre, after it had first appeared in 1854 as Jeanne Eyre, ou les Memoires d'une institutrice. The first French Agnes Grey was published in 1859, together with Shirley. Wuthering Heights had to wait until 1892, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall until 1937.
