Apostasy

Charlotte Brontë (1816-1855)

Read by Margaret Wilson (Alumna, English, 2003).

Four of Charlotte Brontë's poems--"The Wife's Will," "The Wood," "Regret," and "Apostasy"--together constitute a single story of an English wife who chooses to accompany her husband into political exile in France, where she affirms at the end of her life a loyalty to her native faith, the religion of romantic love.
