Charlotte Bronte's Birthday


Today is Charlotte Bronte’s birthday.

Jane Eyre is hands down one of my favorite novels. I read it nearly every year, relishing the vivid Gothic detail and the unlikely love story. What literary gems the Bronte sisters were. In a time when
women weren’t considered to be novelist, they strove to publish their works. In fact, Jane Eyre was originally published under the name Currer Bell to hide her gender, just as her sisters selected masculine pseudonyms to hide their gender.

It is due to pioneers such as Charlotte Bronte that women writers were accepted and published.They gave us a start and a future.

So, Happy Birthday, Charlotte and thanks!

That's it according to Maddy~
