Branwell's Angrian manuscripts are more characteristic of his literary activities and comprise both poems and stories written out in the tiniest of hands.
Angria was one of the Brontë children's imaginary kingdoms, which grew out of early games with toy soldiers.
Sometime before November 1834, Emily and Anne created a new kingdom called Gondal. Many of Emily's poems were to have their origin in its now largely lost tales including some of her most distinguished such as 'Remembrance'.
Around the same time, Branwell and Charlotte formed Angria. Material in the collection demonstrates Branwell's literary creativity was nurtured by its possibilities.
