Example text

Though none of the children had much formal instruction, all were avid readers of several newspapers, literary magazines like Blackwood舖s, popular ladies舗 annuals, the Bible, and literary classics like John Bunyan舗s Pilgrim舗s Progress, The Arabian Nights, William Shakespeare, John Milton, Sir Walter Scott, and the latest Romantic poetry, all used as models for their own creative efforts. The four Brontȵ children舗s writing endeavors began about a year after their sisters舗 deaths, when Patrick Brontȵ brought home toy soldiers for his children to play with.

Since she had always considered herself most undesirable and even unlovable, this expression of ardent love shocked and gratified her. At age thirty-eight, Charlotte renounced her romantic dreams and for a while was surprised by how happy she was in her new life. It did not last long. Within months she became severely ill and wasted, and died in March 1855. Though a local doctor linked her symptoms to pregnancy舒and there has been much popular psychological criticism purporting to explain her death as an unconscious rejection of sex, marriage, and motherhood舒there is no real evidence that she was pregnant, or if she was, that she died of a pregnancy-related condition rather than tuberculosis (like her sisters) or typhoid, which was rampant in Haworth in the nineteenth century.
