Brontë novels rated by MILF levels
Jane Eyre - Mrs. Reed, while a mother, is a mother very few of us would like to fuck. Céline Varens has the ILF, but is not much of a mom. Jane acquires MILF status in the last few pages of the epilogue, and that counts for something, right? 3/10
Villette - Madame Beck is a badass, entrepreneurial MILF for the ages. There is a legitimate risk that she will steal your man, but mostly for business reasons. 6/10
Wuthering Heights - Impossible to have any MILFs when you FRIDGE EVERY MOTHER WITHIN TWO PAGES OF HER CHILD’S BIRTH, Emily! The only mother who survives her childbirth flees town, disappears, and dies offscreen. MILF lives matter! -10/10
Tenant of Wildfell Hall - Helen Graham is PEAK MILF. Even when in hiding and posing as a widow, so sexy that men stop and stare. Would do anything for her son, including crime. One hell of a lady. 10/10

Scans are mine. I never saw Bette Davis but it could work.

11-05-21 | book annotations
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
I’ve usually been against writing in books but today I started annotating in the book I’m currently reading (Jane Eyre) and I’ve been pulled over to the dark side.
My annotations are mostly things like ‘nice’, ‘[judgement of Mr Rochester]’, and ‘hot... also, therapy for all three of us?’ but I really enjoy doing it and I feel like I’m engaging with the text more and understanding it better which is GREAT because I’m going to be studying this after half term.
That does pose a problem though because a lot of the phrases I’ve underlined and annotated are interactions between Jane and Mr Rochester such as when he waited outside her room in chapter 27 or when he calls her ‘my little darling’ or ‘my good little girl’... this might become problematic when I have to have my book open to these annotations at school...
But that’s not my problem today.
I don’t have school tomorrow but I have a LOT of work to do so I’ll have to drag myself away from Jane Eyre and Lana’s poems :(

I just watched the newer Jane Eyre Movie for the first time, it's also the first time I have seen any Jane Eyre adaptation. And damn, it's definitely one of those books where I imagined things completely differently than I saw them in the movie. I went back to the book to see how things were described and they actually matched the movie aesthetic very well. I really don't know why it looked so different in my head. What a fun experience!

Duuuude, Jekyll and Hyde is actually all about sin and to what extent it defines us and it's more of a morality story than popculture would have you believe! at least that's my take on it, would love to read yours. Personally I was very pleasantly surprised when I only read it to pad out my Victober lol Also I'm devastated you don't love Jane Eyre? i'd've thought it'd be right up you alley
That sounds interesting! You may have just convinced me to actually read Jekyll and Hyde soon. Stevenson has long been on my TBR anyhow, given Gilbert and Frances Chesterton’s love of his work.
Jane Eyre is fine. I enjoyed large parts of it. I just hate Rochester. He lost me when he pulled his gypsy fortune-teller shenanigans, and the attempted bigamy just made everything worse. Not my idea of a good romantic hero, especially when compared to Austen’s. (And everyone compared Jane Eyre to Austen). It’s possible that I could change my opinion if I approached it as a novel about life rather than the Great Classic Romance I was told to expect. But even beyond that, the Bronte style is usually more self-seriously melodramatic than I prefer. I love that some people love the book so much, but I don’t think I’ll ever love it the same way.

I wish people would stop comparing jane austen with charlotte brontë... just because they were female writers in the 19th century doesn't mean that they wrote the same way or with the same purpose. Jane's novels are not as dark or intense as Charlotte's, they're less introspective.
Jane's novels are much more comparable to Dickens, since they both usually reflect on society and its traditions and expectations, rather than the self, as charlotte and her sisters did. It doesn't mean that charlotte's novels are better, they're just different.

“I have for the first time found what I can truly love – I have found you. You are my sympathy – my better self – my good angel – I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my centre and spring of life, wrap my existence about you–and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one.”

I’m currently reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë but I also picked up Lana del Rey’s poetry book ‘Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass’ because my mum was at the book store and offered to buy me a book and how could I resist that?
I haven’t really dug my teeth into Lana’s book just yet because I have exams in a week today but I’m on page 304 of Jane Eyre. It’s okay so far... I have no idea whether I love it or just think it’s okay and I probably won’t until I finish it.
In terms of revision... well I have a lot to do today and for the rest of this week because exams start Monday. I’ve been quite productive recently so hopefully everything will be okay!!!

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.

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.

Quote
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.
Currently reading: Villette by Charlotte Brontë; Sailing to Sarantium by Guy Gavriel Kay

✍🏻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.
