Jane Eyre - Scented Book Candle
Among women writers, Charlotte Bronte has a sure and certain place for all time (Britannica).
Jane Eyre was the first published novel from the Bronte sisters, kick-starting one of the most famous literary legacies of the 19th century.
In 1846, Anne, Emily, and Charlotte published a poetry book under the pseudonyms Acton, Ellis, and Currer Bell.
They knew they would be taken more seriously if the public believed that they were men.
Charlotte also published Jane Eyre under the name Currer Bell. When it became a bestseller, the literary world became consumed with learning more about the mysterious Bell brothers. Having corresponded by letter, Brontë’s publishers, Smith, Elder, and Company, had no idea that Currer Bell was a woman.
Favorite quote: “If all the world hated you and believed you wicked, while your own conscience approved of you and absolved you from guilt, you would not be without friends.”
