Happy birthday, Charlotte

It’s the 200th birthday of Charlotte Brontë — how the years fly by! Her first novel, Jane Eyre, was published around the time I started kindergarten, although I didn’t get around to reading it until I was in my teens. When I finally did, it marked the beginning of a love affair with nineteenth century British literature that has been one of the greatest sources of joy in my life. Thanks, Charlotte!

    I’m confused. Jane Eyre was published in 1847. That makes you about 165 years old.

    Despite your age, I too, an addicted to 19th century British literature.

    My favorite book as a child, and still, I think. And the film with Joan Fontaine and Orson Welles is wonderful.

  3. Time really does fly. I went to grade school with Jane. She was a brilliant writer even then. 😉
