really liked it
bookshelves: poetry, brontë
Read in October, 2004

Break my heart in a million pieces! Not only could they write fantastic novels, but the Brontës could write poetry! I have to agree with the critics that I like Emily's poems the best. They are extremely well written and evoke such emotions. From the perspective of someone familiar with the lives of the Brontës, however, Charlotte's two poems (written after Emily died and after Anne died) about the loss of her sisters nearly killed me. Also, Anne's Last Lines (written shortly after Emily died and shortly before she died) were gut-wrenching. I'm a sucker for sad poems, anyway. There are definitely worth reading!
