In its exploration of legal issues presented in novels of the Brontë sisters, this book represents a significant and original contribution to the study, not just of the Brontës and the mid-nineteenth century 'woman's novel', but also the situation of women in nineteenth century English law and the debates which moved around its prospective reform.

Mi contribución a difundir de la narrativa brontëana en el campo de estudios iusliterarios en España ha sido haber animado a la Dra. Cristina Monereo Atienza en la redacción del trabajo que tituló “Narrativa y Género. Sobre desigualdad y justicia social en Villette de C. Brönte e Insolación de E. Pardo Bazán”, publicado en José Calvo González (coord.), Implicación Derecho Literatura: Contribuciones a una Teoría literaria del Derecho, Edit. Comares, Granada, 2008 (ISBN: 978-84-9836-344-9), pp. 235-252, a cuya lectura invito.
