Hiya everyone, it’s Phoenix here!
There are many great writers in the world and we keep hearing the name Charlotte Bronte…so I decided to do a short introduction to her!
Charlotte Brontë was the eldest of the three, well know Brontë sisters, who eventually wrote novels which became classics in English Literature.
Charlotte was born in Thornton, England on the 21st of April, 1816.
When she was 14 years old, she enlisted in school at Roe Head in January, 1831. But then she took a leave the year after, to teach her sisters – Emily and Anne – at home.
She returned to Roe Head in 1835, not as a young student, but as an eighteen year old with the role of a Governess, which she soon gave up in 1839.
Charlotte Brontë returned to Haworth, where she and her younger sisters opened up a school but failed to attract students!
So the close sisters turned to writing instead and they each published a book in 1846.
Although her novel, The Professor, was rejected by publishers, her second book was published in 1847, and that was infamous Jane Eyre!
Now, Charlotte Brontë is well known and her work is celebrated in London literary circles and all around the world!
