    Happy 200th Birthday, Charlotte Bronte!

    By Anne Perry

    Happy 200th Birthday, Charlotte Bronte!

    Brontë hipsters will claim that the actual best Brontë novel is The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, by Anne Brontë. Contrarians like to argue that the best Charlotte Brontë novel is not the most famous, Jane Eyre, but instead Villette or even Shirley. And today – Charlotte Brontë’s two hundredth birthday, is not the day for us to argue. (Or maybe it is! But not here on Hodderscape!) Instead, today is all about celebrating Charlotte Brontë, one of the most superb novelists of the English language (and a Hodderscape favourite).
