Self Portrait by Anushka Nair | 2015 | graphite on paper

I’m a student, writer, and artist.

I have been obsessed with the Brontë sisters for years, having first been introduced to them after reading Jane Eyre. I only later came to realize Brontëmania exists within a distinct community of people. My guiding question now is – what drives the strange obsession with these Victorian-era-Yorkshire-countryside trio of authors?

All information cited comes from The Life of Charlotte Brontë by Elizabeth Gaskell, the Brontë sisters’ original work, and secondhand sources of their personal diaries (courtesy of the Brontë Parsonage Museum).
