We all have read books by female novelists once in a while. But how many of us have read their works knowing that they wrote under male pen names?! INTERESTING, right?!
So ladies, let’s see the top 10 female novelists who wrote under a male pen name !
We all read the famous classics “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Brontë, “Wuthering Heights” by Emily Brontë, and "Agnes Grey" by Anne Brontë while growing up. They are regarded as few of the most influential works of literature in history and are now published under their true name. Many, however, do not realize that these quintessential English novels were originally written under male pen names. Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë wote under the pen names of Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell respectively. Each sister used the first initials of their first names and adopted men's names instead so they could preserve their identities and avoid the sexist views of those who didn't take kindly to female writers.
