Recently I came upon the site "Ask the Brontë Sisters" and recommended it to you, my loyal readers, but my hidden (up 'til now) shame, is that I am a poseur when it comes to having actual knowledge of the Brontë sisters' work (outside of movies, I think I saw Wuthering Heights on AMC) - a fraud - a charlatan! Now it's time to come to the podium again. "Hi, I'm Dawno and I've never read any Brontë."
Well, I've remedied that dire and unwelcome lapse in my education - the Amazon order should arrive this week with the Complete Novels of Charlotte and Emily Brontë (a HUGE volume of over 1k pages) and Anne's novel The Tenant of Wildfell Hall as well as the Oxford Companion to the Brontës.
I'm having one of those moments where I just wonder if I should go back and get my Masters in Literature just for the heck of it. I wonder if my credits from the post grad classes I took 20 years ago are still acceptable.
By the way, if you like me, please don't tell me about any more wonderful, must read, you don't know what you're missing, writers from the 18th and 19th century for a while. I have quite enough to read now as it is.
