News about the Brontes has truly dried up this weekend. Everything is either repetitive or not at all interesting. I did save up some articles to share, so we do have something to discuss today.
Firstly, a production of Jane Eyre will be playing in Salt Lake:
The Riverton Arts Council will be performing “Jane Eyre” on June 30, July 1, 5, 6, 7 and 8 at the Riverton Civic Center’s Sandra Newman Lloyd Auditorium. “Jane Eyre” is a haunting retelling of the Charlotte Bronte classic about an orphan girl who grows up to become a governess of Thornfield Hall. Tickets will be available after June 17 at Peterson’s Marketplace and at the door on performance nights. Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for children and seniors.
From google blog search, there are a few interesting articles:
This is a brief citation of Charlotte’s The Professor in the context of, I suppose, Marxism?
The Conneticut Post has a post from Jane Freeman who wrote for the Bronte Society Gazette. She reprints her essays on Jane Eyre, starting with Jane Eyre and the Symbolic Landscape. She starts off her post with a brief plug for the BBC’s 1973 Jane Eyre- which is always nice.
My favourite character was Mr Mybug, an author who is working on a biography of Branwell Bronte. His theory is that it was the sisters who were drunks, and not Branwell.
