Writing on Charlotte Bronte at The American Scholar!

If you’ve got a few minutes for some literary nostalgia today, please check out my new piece online at The American Scholar! 

Charlotte’s poem, written on a scrap of an envelope


. . .She wrote the poem when she was only a little younger than I was when I first fell in love with Jane Eyre. Much of my life as a reader and writer stems from the moment my father gave me that book. I return to it, and the rest of the Brontë canon, whenever I need guidance or inspiration. They have never let me down. . .

It has the added benefit of being my first professional clip since undergrad 🙂
