She also wrote a fair amount of poetry, some of which is set in the fictional country of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gondal_%28fictional_country%29 Gondal]], invented by Emily and her sister [[Creator/AnneBronte Anne]], and which along with diary entries is the only record of that world [[note]]sadly the prose works they also wrote no longer exist[[/note]]. This poetry was allegedly very personal to her, and she as furious when [[Creator/CharlotteBronte Charlotte]] discovered them; nevertheless they have been published after her death.

Despite ever only writing one novel, her impact on English literature has been profound. That one book has been adapted dozens of times, making her ShortLivedBigImpact.

Badass Damsel is now Damsel Out Of Distress because distress is required for the trope
She was perhaps the strangest (or most openly strange) of the three Brontė sisters. She preferred solitude to company, thus reminding of her namesake Creator/EmilyDickinson, and loved to take long walks in the Yorkshire moors, which doubtlessly inspired ''Literature/WutheringHeights''. She was an adept drawer and was very fond of nature studies. She is also noted as the only one of the entire Brontė household who could control the family's Mastiff [[AngryGuardDog Keeper]], whom she famously submitted to herself by [[BadassDamsel beating him up]] and afterwards tending to his wounds.

We don't trope authors as if they were characters.
---- !! Tropes describing Emily Brontė * BasementDweller: She was originally sent to [[BoardingSchoolOfHorrors Cowan Bridge]], the sisters' very own, very real version of [[Literature/JaneEyre Lowood]], but got so homesick she was sent back and educated by her father. * CloudCuckooLander * DarkerAndEdgier: She is perhaps the darkest in nature of all three Brontė sisters. Her work reflects this. * {{Kuudere}}: Loved her family dearly, but had hardly any friends outside of it of which we know today. * NamesTheSame: Which other [[Literature/JaneEyre Jane]] can you think of who is very fond of drawing and is closely linked to the Brontė sisters...? * NotGoodWithPeople: A middle ground between the two types. * PreachersKid: Their father was Reverend Patrick Brontė. * SpiritedYoungLady: Nature studies were quite an unusual hobby for women back then. She was also known for being quite bold. * VictorianNovelDisease: What she died of. She refused treatment until it was too late. ----

There was also another side to her, the one that loved the Brontė elderly housekeeper Tabby so much that she'd herself [[NiceToTheWaiter peel the vegetables for lunch, as Tabby's eyesight got so bad she couldn't do it anymore, lest she would get fired]]. Her sister Charlotte described her as “stronger than a man [and] simpler than a child”.
