Charlotte Bront was a British novelist, the eldest out of the three famous Bront sisters whose novels have become standards of English literature See also Emily Bront and Anne Bront.Charlotte Bront was born in Thornton, Yorkshire, England, the third of six children, to Patrick Bront formerly Patrick Brunty , an Irish Anglican clergyman, and his wife, Maria Branwell In April 1820 the fam Charlotte Bront was a British novelist, the eldest out of the three famous Bront sisters whose novels have become standards of English literature See also Emily Bront and Anne Bront.Charlotte Bront was born in Thornton, Yorkshire, England, the third of six children, to Patrick Bront formerly Patrick Brunty , an Irish Anglican clergyman, and his wife, Maria Branwell In April 1820 the family moved a few miles to Haworth, a remote town on the Yorkshire moors, where Patrick had been appointed Perpetual Curate This is where the Bront children would spend most of their lives Maria Branwell Bront died from what was thought to be cancer on 15 September 1821, leaving five daughters and a son to the care of her spinster sister Elizabeth Branwell, who moved to Yorkshire to help the family.In August 1824 Charlotte, along with her sisters Emily, Maria, and Elizabeth, was sent to the Clergy Daughters School at Cowan Bridge in Lancashire, a new school for the daughters of poor clergyman which she would describe as Lowood School in Jane Eyre The school was a horrific experience for the girls and conditions were appalling They were regularly deprived of food, beaten by teachers and humiliated for the slightest error The school was unheated and the pupils slept two to a bed for warmth Seven pupils died in a typhus epidemic that swept the school and all four of the Bront girls became very ill Maria and Elizabeth dying of tuberculosis in 1825 Her experiences at the school deeply affected Bront her health never recovered and she immortalised the cruel and brutal treatment in her novel, Jane Eyre Following the tragedy, their father withdrew his daughters from the school.At home in Haworth Parsonage, Charlotte and the other surviving children Branwell, Emily, and Anne continued their ad hoc education In 1826 her father returned home with a box of toy soldiers for Branwell They would prove the catalyst for the sisters extraordinary creative development as they immediately set to creating lives and characters for the soldiers, inventing a world for them which the siblings called Angria The siblings became addicted to writing, creating stories, poetry and plays Bront later said that the reason for this burst of creativity was that We were wholly dependent on ourselves and each other, on books and study, for the enjoyments and occupations of life The highest stimulus, as well as the liveliest pleasure we had known from childhood upwards, lay in attempts at literary composition After her father began to suffer from a lung disorder, Charlotte was again sent to school to complete her education at Roe Head school in Mirfield from 1831 to 1832, where she met her lifelong friends and correspondents, Ellen Nussey and Mary Taylor During this period 1833 , she wrote her novella The Green Dwarf under the name of Wellesley The school was extremely small with only ten pupils meaning the top floor was completely unused and believed to be supposedly haunted by the ghost of a young lady dressed in silk This story fascinated Bront and inspired the figure of Mrs Rochester in Jane Eyre.Bront left the school after a few years, however she swiftly returned in 1835 to take up a position as a teacher, and used her wages to pay for Emily and Anne to be taught at the school However, teaching did not appeal to Bront and in 1838 she left Roe Head to become a governess to the Sidgewick family this was partly from a sense of adventure and a desire to see the world, and partly from financial necessity Charlotte became pregnant soon after her wedding, but her health declined rapidly and, according to Gaskell, she was attacked by sensations of perpetual nausea and ever recurring faintness She died, with her unborn child, on 31 March 1855, aged 38

    Reader, I gave it five stars Please let me tell you why Jane Eyre is the quintessential Victorian novel It literally has everything that was typical of the period, but, unlike other novels, it has all the elements in one story At the centre is the romance between Jane and Rochester, which is enhanced by gothic elements such as the uncanniness of the doppleganger and the spectre like qualities of Bertha In addition, it is also a governess novel these were an incredibly popular type of stor Reader, I gave it five stars Please let me tell you why Jane Eyre is the quintessential Victorian novel It literally has everything that was typical...

    There is something deeply attractive about gothic romance Part of its appeal is the sense of intractable eroticism squirming to escape from just beneath the surface The tension in the genre is often generated by a virginal girl s attraction to a dangerous man Thepitiful and helpless the heroine the better, but she must also be proud and virtuous, brave and idealistic Her attraction to the ominous hero must be based on pity, not fear He must deserve her idealism Charlotte s Bronte ...

    Jane, be still don t struggle so like a wild, frantic bird, that is rending its own plumage in its desperation I am no bird and no net ensnares me I am a free human being, with an independent will which I now exert to leave you I am glad that in 1847 Charlotte Bronte made the decision to publish her novel under a male pseudonym Currer Bell had a much better chance of being published than Charlotte Bronte and, with reviewers and readers assuming that she was in fact a male writer, allo Jane, be still don t struggle so like a wild, frantic bird, that is rending its own plumage in i...

    The picture disappeared which made the comments rather irrelevantOh course, Rush Limbaugh is nuts.In December 2007, on a radio show with an audience of 14.5 million, Limbaugh asked this question about the former first lady s presidential prospects, after an incredibly unflattering picture of her had surfaced Will Americans want to watch a woman get older before their eyes on a daily basis I want you to understand that I m talking abo...
