Notes
See p.68 in source for Bronte's letter of 19 January 1850 to Lewes, in which she states the reason for her objection to his article as being 'because after I had said earnestly that I wished critics would judge me as an <i>author</i>, not as a woman, you so roughly &mdash; I even thought so cruelly &mdash; handled the question of sex.'
