The BrontĂ« sisters, Thomas Hardy, George Eliot, Charles Dickens–the Victorian era was a treasure of great writers. Mostly very heavy social commentary. Loved them all.

and each infused with their own individuality;
wit, character, and spirit.

In honor of Emily Brontë’s birthday
Today July 30th 1818

Here is a tribute to the Brilliant Brontë Sisters:

10546-2.JPGTheBrontës
 A nineteenth-century literary family associated with the village of Haworth in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England. Charlotte, Emily, and Anne, are well known as poets and novelists. Like many contemporary female writers, they originally published their poems and novels under male pseudonyms: Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. Their stories immediately attracted attention, although not always the best, for their passion and originality. Charlotte’s “Jane Eyre” was the first to know success, while Emily’s “Wuthering Heights”, Anne’s “The Tenant of Wildfell Hall” and other works were later to be accepted as masterpieces of literature.


Jane Eyre
By Charlotte Brontë
Deliciously haunting and dark Jane Eyre follows the emotions and experiences

Elizabeth’s volume Poems (1844) brought her great success, attracting the admiration of the writer Robert Browning. Their correspondence, courtship and marriage were carried out in secret, for fear of her father’s disapproval. Following the wedding she was indeed disinherited by her father.
The couple moved to Italy in 1846, where she would live for the rest of her life. They had one son, Robert Barrett Browning, whom they called Pen. She died in Florence in 1861.A collection of her last poems was published by her husband shortly after her death.
Elizabeth’s work had a major influence on prominent writers of the day, including the American poets Edgar Allan Poe and Emily Dickinson. She is remembered for such poems
