Abstract

The Dunedin Public Library kindly lent Special Collections a very rare item: a page of writing in Branwell Brontë's hand. Never before published, this page provides the concluding lines to a story in which a group of rebels escape from Angrian soldiers, thanks to the clever thinking of the Falstaffian character, Joynes. The remainder of the story survives at the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth, England. Drs Tom McLean (Otago) and Grace Moore (Melbourne) are preparing an article that explores the significance of the Dunedin manuscript.
