“Jane Eyre”

On this day in 1847, Currer Bell’s novel of desire, madness, and love was published.
The initials are correct, the author’s name, not. You know her as Charlotte Bronte.
Charlotte’s life read like one of her novels. Her family rivals the characters of any Gothic novel, growing up at a parsonage in Hawthorne, amidst the bleakness of the moors.
Death, passions, madness from drugs and alcohol, the duties and expectations of a proper English woman…….all there.
Found in the pages of Charlotte’s life….
Today Jane Eyre’s pages were fresh off the press….on their way to becoming one of literature’s classics.
Both stories equally intriguing……the story of the Bronte family and the story woven in Charlotte’s mind and heart.
And perhaps both live on…….in the hauntings of the Bronte parsonage and the words from Charlotte’s haunted mind and heart.

Namaste,
Shirl
