Charlotte Brontë’s Ankle Boots


PS Charlotte Bronté is a literary genius. I had no idea till yesterday when I started reading Jane Eyre and five pages in I had to fall on the floor dwarfed by her mastery of the English language, and connecting her to Virginia Woolf. These women of British Literature have no one to challenge them. Titans would be an understatement and a misgenderfication, as well.

The image is of her ankle boots taken by me at the National Gallery the other day.
