villetteIt is her year too, after all…

And I came across Carrie Frye’s musings about… oh, several things, actually: Claire Harman’s new biography, Charlotte’s rather desolate 1843 summer break in Brussels, its portrayal in Villette, and the very, very early days of writing Jane Eyre. Also, first drafts, recent discoveries and readerly thrills…

Quite a nice piece – and one that made up my mind: now I just have to read Claire Harman’s book.
