Mansions in the Sky – The Rise and Fall of Branwell Brontë
Who was Branwell Brontë? This new exhibition, curated by poet Simon Armitage, invites us inside the mind and world of the notorious Brontë brother in a search for answers to this question. Inspired by an early poem sent to William Wordsworth by the optimistic and precocious twenty-year old, Armitage explores Branwell’s colourful personal history through his writings, drawings and possessions, displayed at the Parsonage alongside newly created installations.
Simon Armitage was born in West Yorkshire and is Professor of Poetry at Oxford University.
