Charlotte Bronte

It is in vain to say human beings

ought to be satisfied with tranquility:

they must have action; and they will make it

if they cannot find it. Millions are condemned to

a stiller doom than mine, and millions are in

silent revolt against their lot….

Women are supposed to be very calm generally:

but women feel just as men feel;

they need exercise for their faculties,

and a field for their efforts,

as much as their brothers do;

they suffer from too rigid a restraint,

too absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer;

and it is narrow-minded in their more privilege

fellow-creatures to say that they ought

to confine themselves to making puddings….

knitting stockings….playing on the piano….

It is thoughtless to condemn them, or laugh at them

if they seek to do more or learn more than

custom has pronounced necessary for their sex.-Ch. 12

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

As i begin writing of this review ,my first view and impressions go to Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist and a typical England workhouse attended by poor and miserable orphans,where uproar and laugh of children play in a sad surrounding, that they even were not fully aware of.Such emotions relate me to the saga of Charlotte Bronte and her work,though she grew up in a family environment, nourished by her father and mother ,which after mother’s death followed by help of the aunt/sister of her mother/.Charlotte was a child of Dickens’ milieu,curious and smart,passionate of life and rich in feelings ,which could have only been seen as associated with  a twirl of madness,strangeness and passion beyond the apprehension of average minds.By bearing the mark of these previsions,Charlotte followed that lane to know the challenging call of love with a married man and experience  the destiny predicted before her birth, which had to gain its expression in her works as well.

Some of that life juice she put into Jane Eyre ,much loved novel by all generations that survived its time and longing to reach timeless.I felt stream of vibrations coming from Jane Eyre and all the features she brought into life ,being so mindful and sensitive,with hidden torrent of strong emotions,being doomed to love in desperate circumstances and opposite to the time of their rising.As a governess with an appointment to Thornfield Manor,she lived her imagined landscape and a fairy tale house with ghosts,dwarfs,wizards and villa’s orb-all of which she dreamed in early childhood, by fantasy of a lovely child arisen in the whirl of mixed passions, where God and Devil battled each other.She was lured by spice of ancient insoluble puzzles traveling during the centuries ,the vortex of which brought her to such a place to meet  love of her life:Edward Rochester.As in each true love they fell in love at first meeting,although following life dictates,it realised much later.He found her in deep dedication to most serene feeling-loyalty, which seemed to him so bewitching since he was squalid and crestfallen at own experienced strikes of life corresponding his age.That blind devotion he saw in her was the key for his love.What about her?Brave to go toward the face of destiny,she still wanted a port to embrace her great love with no waves and suspicious clearness;everything had to be pure and crystal clear,her emotions must meet only unconventional love.

Our desires are the ones,yet circumstances to take us and throw around, make a bit different tide of happenings.Having discovered that  Rochester’s wife suffered from insanity,Jane had fled him, only to come back ,by finding him in complicated condition after losing of eyesight while helping to rescue the life of own wife, that eventually killed in fire.

So, destiny is finally filled-something from reality,some from enhanched imagination ,with expectations and sudden strikes to go along  with everyone’s lives,it came to the end.But, i am sure in one;Charlotte met true love in her real life which abundant feelings of,she transmitted in beautiful narrated story about Jane Eyre.Why am i so sure?Because i know of the taste of love with so strong emotions and passion, and know it never gets lost …never has been in vain,tracks of brilliant filaments follow their path of love all along  to the eternity.

Short description/source Wikipedia

Jane Eyre is a first-person narrative of the title character, a small, plain-faced, intelligent and honest English orphan. The novel goes through five distinct stages: Jane’s childhood at Gateshead, where she is abused by her aunt and cousins; her education at Lowood School, where she acquires friends and role models but also suffers privations; her time as the governess of Thornfield Manor, where she falls in love with her Byronic employer, Edward Rochester; her time with the Rivers family at Marsh’s End (or Moor House) and Morton, where her cold clergyman-cousin St John Rivers proposes to her; and her reunion with and marriage to her beloved Rochester at his house of Ferndean. Partly autobiographical, the novel abounds with social criticism and sinister gothic elements.

Biography/insert from online-literature/

Growing up in Victorian England, Charlotte and her sisters were inspired by the Romantic authors of the time including Sir Walter Scott, William Wordsworth and Lord George Gordon Byron. As sisters and authors, Charlotte, Emily and Anne gave each other moral support, shared creative ideas and proof-read one another’s work. As the oldest of the Bronte authors, Charlotte approached her writing career as a means to financial independence and to help support her siblings. She was born on 21 April 1816, at 74 Market Street in the village of Thornton near Bradford in Yorkshire County, England

Love&Annabel Lee

Love&Annabel Lee
 

Annabel Lee

Love and Death,beautiful and divine nexus to express strength and power of the ones who are in Love.The most beautiful poem ever composed by God to be given Human Beings, is Love.The all we see and feel,in Music,Paintings,Literature and Poetry,are only the expressions of Godlike gift.From such a superior source many generations have been inspired and great minds of the world created their magnificent pieces.
By writing this poem of Love,Edgar Alan Poe gave us eternal truth of divine origin of man;there is no power to be more powerful than Love has happened to be.With so gorgeous feeling of love, Edgar Alan Poe resurrected dead soul and beat death,showing simple and genuine path to the meridian happiness.We are blessed by love of Jesus Christ.His words have been spread everywhere and came to everything.
Divine Love gifted its crystal drops to every one of creatures formed by will of God;living bodies fulfilled of blood colored in red flow as eternal impress of passion-first sin of the three of Cognition;man and woman’s guilt gave birth to Devil!

If you ever wanted to know of how Devil was born ,now,by reading these lines there is no more Mystery for you:Devil has been conceived by sin of Adam and Eva /woman and man/

Did you ever experience a passionate love?Suddenly,even it is not known by you,he sneaks,and his name is DEVIL!The moment of falling in Love is most beautiful feeling we are able to feel.The charm of unknown like a magic possesses you and leading to serene spirit condition,which resembles death.By trying for the key point of the connection between Love/Life and Death i unveil:It is about Reconciliation with Destiny-final surrender and sense to be helpless,when you know there is nothing you can change anymore!
I am very happy to conceive this,it was the main spot i was longing to find!Magnificent common attribute that links Love and Death!
 
He lies by her ;there is not limit between life and death,since death have been beaten for all the time.Two souls has been joined forever.
The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me
Love was so glorious that angels in the heaven had not reached happiness of the temporal lovers.
.

It was many and many a year ago,

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams

Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;

And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes

Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;

And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side

Of my darling — my darling — my life and my bride,

In her sepulchre there by the sea,

In her tomb by the sounding sea.

Of those who were older than we —

Of many far wiser than we —

And neither the angels in heaven above,

Nor the demons down under the sea,

Can ever dissever my soul from the soul

Of the beautiful Annabel Lee:

In a kingdom by the sea,

That a maiden there lived whom you may know

By the name of Annabel Lee;

And this maiden she lived with no other thought

Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,

In this kingdom by the sea:

But we loved with a love that was more than love —

I and my Annabel Lee;

With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven

Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,

In this kingdom by the sea,

A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling

My beautiful Annabel Lee;

So that her highborn kinsmen came

And bore her away from me,

To shut her up in a sepulchre

In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in heaven,

Went envying her and me —

Yes! — that was the reason (as all men know,

In this kingdom by the sea)

That the wind came out of the cloud by night,

Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

Went envying her and me —

Yes! — that was the reason (as all men know,

In this kingdom by the sea)

That the wind came out of the cloud by night,

Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

Went envying her and me —
