Dear Readers,


I now consider this blog to be my Juvenelia. Have fun perusing the archives, and find me at my new haunt, here.

Welcome Bronte-Along to the Blogosphere



Lifelong friend of EBC BethDunn and tweep Melissa have started a new blog project to celebrate, communally, the works of the Bronte Sisters. I'll let Beth explain her rationale in her own words:

It is my secret hope that we can expand the theme, make it a true tour of the glories of the Sisters Bronte, and move on from Jane Eyre to Wuthering Heights, to enjoy Heathcliff’s sullen and vengeful brooding… and perhaps end the trip in a prolonged visit to Wildfell Hall to complete the cycle.

For although I love Jane Austen dearly, I often feel like the Bronte sisters get the short end of the stick. All this Darcying about and Colonel-Brandoning it up is quite well and good, but sometimes a girl just wants some dark and brooding moorland action to soothe her soul.

Time to add them to your RSS readers! I'll be participating at some point be re-reading The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and watching the BBC version.
