ABOUT ME

Yo,
My name is Siham. I'm 20. I live in Australia.
I have an unhealthy addiction to movies, tv shows, Batman and tea.
I'm the person who laughs when someone falls over.

favourite classical authors meme | 2/? authors: Charlotte Brontë (1816-1855

Charlotte Brontë was an English novelist and poet, the eldest of the three Brontë sisters who survived into adulthood, whose novels are English literature standards. She wrote Jane Eyre under the pen name Currer Bell. (x)

Without a doubt, Charlotte Brontë was progressive in her beliefs. In a time when women were considered little more than social adornments and bearers of offspring, Charlotte Brontë bravely contradicted society through her writing. Her novels speak volumes for the oppressed woman; thus establishing Charlotte Brontë as one of the first modern women of her time. Charlotte Brontë withdrew from a society that would not entirely accept her, and expressed her stifled ideals through her words.

Brontë, in her subtlety, wrote of simple women, who relied upon the respect of themselves, rather than society, to provide fulfillment in their lives. Through her characters, Brontë gave the gift of the modern woman, a woman determined to make her own way, and live her life by her own set of standards, dictated not by society but by herself, and herself alone.
