Part of the appeal of the Brontë siblings is how vastly different their personalities were, though.

Hermit Emily: “I don’t want to deal with the outside world. I prefer living in my wild fantasies.”

Sensible Anne: “Maybe we should try living in the outside world? We could give it a go, I guess?”  

Ambitious Charlotte: “The outside world has to know about our books and our genius!”

Drunken Branwell: *gets drunk” 

Jane Austen and the Brontë sisters hold our imagination because, ultimately, they all believed in women thinking for themselves and only marrying a man they truly loved.

Ahead of their time? 

Man, they were ahead of people in the world NOW.

Don’t forget that. Even 150 years ago, smart, sensible women knew what the deal with marriage was.

The worst question you can ever ask about the three  Brontë sisters: “Well, who was the best one?” Yeah, that’s not the point.  They were ALL the best ones.

Charlotte, Anne and Emily were brilliant and dazzling and outspoken in their own ways. They were always bringing up their own POVs and were saying things that their other two sisters never once brought up. 

A family full of actual, proper literary geniuses. With unique opinions. Few ever truly appreciate this or how amazing and historical that is.
