Celebrating the BrontÃ«s
This event will celebrate the bicentenary of Charlotte Brontë’s birth, with readings from and commentaries on her ground-breaking, powerful, and influential novels. Works featured will include Jane Eyre and Villette alongside the poetry and prose of her sisters, Emily and Anne Brontë. Readings will also reflect the creative reimaginings inspired by the Brontës’ fiction in the literature of later women writers, such as Sylvia Plath and Jean Rhys. Speakers include Professor Michael O’Neill, Dr Jenny Terry, and Dr Sarah Wootton.
