#AtoZChallenge: E


Theme: My Favorite Stories in Haiku

In the first half of the 1800s the Bronte sisters entered the world, ever to change Victorian literature. Although their works were first published under masculine pen names, or posthumously, the girls were undeterred and sought refuge in their writing. Charlotte perhaps most of all, who continued to put pen to page after the deaths of her dear sisters.

Charlotte Bronte brought us the Victorian / Gothic classic, Jane Eyre. It is, perhaps, one of the most loved romances and the story intertwines mystery, suspense, longing and a historical view of the life of an orphaned woman. The story opens with Jane’s horrible experiences as an orphan who is shuffled from place to place. She eventually comes of age and sets out on her own to be a governess. Upon arriving at her place of employment, Jane meets the master of the house, Mr. Rochester. Secrets and mystery surround the Gothic mansion and the peculiar actions of her employer. As Jane and Rochester’s relationship grows and changes, the mysteries unfurl. For so many reasons, some mentioned above, Jane Eyre is one of my favorite stories, and that is why….

jane1E is for Eyre

plain Jane … governess

chilling secrets sequestered

he, she…found solace

I would not hesitate to recommend the most recent film adaptation of the book. Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender play their roles to perfection.

  1. Again, love your theme. I did a similar thing a couple years ago for A to Z Challenge only it was with art from the Masters. I learned so much. You had a better idea though about keeping the intro to the haiku short. I sometimes got carried away:)
