Can we imagine a world of literature without Jane Eyre? Since Charlotte Brontë’s catapulting entry into literary fame, along with her sisters, our notion of the world and how literature portrays our world have changed. Today marks the 200th birthday of Charlotte Brontë and though she is to some extent eclipsed by the Bard this Saturday (and the British queen today as well), she deserves a celebration of her accomplishments in her all too short life.
I always stare at people’s book cases, and honestly, I do judge a tiny bit if you don’t have books in your home. To me, they are what make a home along with the people. You can have all the hip designer furniture straight out of a interior decorating magazine but if there is no life, then what can possible make it a home?
First of all, a hearty welcome to my small site here in internet land. And what a day to share hopefully many ‘blogiversaries’ with the birthday of Anne Brontë and Anton Chekhow. Perhaps they will bring good luck to this endeavour? Second of all, some of you may already know me from instagram or one of my other online profiles. I am very excited to start this journey and hope some of you want to come along. To start things off, I want to explain what I have in mind for this blog and what you, as readers, can expect.
