Charlotte Bronte early work
on 24 May 2016
Clearly an early work, and maybe the publisher should have respected her intention to revise or withdraw the m/s. Her extensive use of archaic French without footnotes does not add to its clarity and some agility of mind is needed to unravel it.
But, one must realise that she was not writing for this century, and her English is exquisite, as always!
