It’s Charlotte Bronte’s Birthday!!!!
I really should not be taking a break from my Modern Drama papers to post this, but it’s only the first day of dead days. So I’m fine, right?
The Bronte sisters have factored importantly in my life this year. The new Jane Eyre film came out last May. And as cited in earlier posts, my first essay for my first tutorial at Oxford was a comparison between Jane Eyreand Anne’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. Plus, I saw the full portrait of the three sisters (the inset of just Charlotte is pictured above).
Too bad this isn’t quite enough of an excuse to really procrastinate and read Villette today …
