We have none of us long to live; let us help each other through seasons of want and woe, as well as we can, without heeding in the least the scruples of vain philosophy.
Charlotte Brontë, Shirley

"Perché soffrivo sempre, perché ero sempre calpestata, accusata, condannata? Perché non potevo mai essere amata?"

Jane Eyre is probably the only classic text I’ve read where:
-There is a dog
-The dog has a prominent place in the story
-the dog does not die in the end
Pilot is a very good boy and I’m very glad he was spared the quite virulent and all too common dog-in-book syndrome.

To twenty-first-century eyes, it shows a woman who fights for, yet abdicates to, love. To nineteenth-century eyes, it showed a woman who should abdicate to, yet fights for, love.
Sorry, but Jane Eyre Isn’t the Romance You Want It to Be

...it is as if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly and inextricably knotted to a similar string situated in the corresponding quarter of your little frame.

08.05.2021 - Thank God it's Saturday! I was slightly hung over this morning - I had a games night with my undergrad cohort and, let's just say there was a lot of wine consumed than normal...! So, I've spent most of today cleaning, doing a jigsaw with an audiobook of Villette, and eating badly made porridge. Good news is I've finished Villette at last - to no one's surprise I hated it.

✍🏻Brontë
Manuela Santoni ✍🏻
✍🏻✍🏻✍🏻 (out of five)
✍🏻Favorite character: Emily Brontë.
✍🏻 Least favorite character: Branwell Brontë.
✍🏻 Quote: “When a man writes something, he’s judged for what he writes. When a woman does the same, she’s judged for what she is”.
✍🏻Format: e-book.
This graphic novel tells the story of the Brontë siblings.
As before the sisters became writers and sold their works, the family had many financial problems, compounded by the addiction of their brother Branwell.
It spans a short period of time, before Emily agrees to submit her manuscript, until shortly after their works are published.
The Brontës are classic writers of English literature and are recognized worldwide, but they had to go through great obstacles to become what they are now, such as: having to use men's names in their works or having to put up with their brother and help with the illness of his father and overcome the death of their mother and older sisters.

07.05.2021 - I finished my theory reading! Well, for the time being anyway... I've also started a spreadsheet to track mentions of issues around communion in visitation articles, yeah it's become that "interesting" folks!
Now I'm just battling through Villette, I'm desperate just to get it done at this point... I hate everyone in it, there's 0 plot, and I can't understand why people seem to prefer it over Jane Eyre?! If anyone wants to explain the appeal then please feel free.

Ciarán Hinds and Samantha Morton in Jane Eyre (1997) - The Sunrise on Millcote Hill
“The ease of his manner freed me from painful restraint: the friendly frankness, as correct as cordial, with which he treated me, drew me to him. I felt at times as if he were my relation rather than my master: yet he was imperious sometimes still; but I did not mind that; I saw it was his way. So happy, so gratified did I become with this new interest added to life, that I ceased to pine after kindred: my thin crescent-destiny seemed to enlarge; the blanks of existence were filled up; my bodily health improved; I gathered flesh and strength.”
― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Ciarán Hinds and Samantha Morton in Jane Eyre (1997) - Unspoken Feelings
"I believe he is of mine - I am sure he is - I feel akin to him - I understand the language of his countenance and movements: though rank and wealth sever us widely, I have something in my brain and heart, in my blood and nerves, that assimilates me mentally to him. Did I say, a few days since, that I had nothing to do with him but to receive my salary at his hands? Did I forbid myself to think of him in any other light than as a paymaster? Blasphemy against nature! Every good, true, vigorous feeling I have gathers impulsively round him. I know I must conceal my sentiments: I must smother hope; I must remember that he cannot care much for me. For when I say that I am of his kind, I do not mean that I have his force to influence, and his spell to attract; I mean only that I have certain tastes and feelings in common with him. I must, then, repeat continually that we are for ever sundered - and yet, while I breathe and I think, I must love him.”
― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

The real reason I prefer Brontë to Austen is that I realize how much better I would do as a character in a Brontë novel than an Austen Novel.
Following social constructs *just* well enough to prove their absurdity? Nah. I don’t have the constitution for that.
Wandering around on a moor? Screaming, biting people, and acting as a metaphor for colonialism and female oppression? Now that’s something I can handle.
