Reading the Brontës
I've always loved the Brontë sisters' novels. It started with Jane Eyre when I was in eighth grade. These sisters intrigue me. Where did three single daughters of a parson get such passionate, dark, feminist, and even supernatural themes?
I've been re-reading Wuthering Heights this past month, and I've come up with a crazy idea. I want to read (or re-read) all the Brontë sisters' novels this year.
Here's a list. Books I've already read (but will still read again this year) are marked with asterisks.
Tales of Angria
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall*
Poems by Currer, Acton, and Ellis Bell (the Brontës' pen names)
The Life of Charlotte Brontë by Elizabeth Gaskell
The Brontë Sisters: The Brief Lives of Charlotte, Emily, and Anne by Catherine Reef
