Jane Eyre's rich lexicon

Jane Eyre's Rich Lexicon

Daily Mail jokes that Charlotte Brontë might be accused of 'cultural appropriation' because she owned a pair of moccasins.

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that the Bronte Parsonage museum contains a pair of Native American moccasins which belonged to Charlotte Bronte.
That’s her off the reading list. And I give the Bronte statue outside her old home in Yorkshire a couple more days before some lunatic tears it down.
Charlotte Bronte must fall! (Richard Littlejohn)
The statue is in the back garden so hopefully it will be safe ;)

US News recommends Jane Eyre for your 'ACT, SAT Summer Reading List'.
"Jane Eyre," a classic novel by Charlotte Bronte, is a great starting point. A story about love and overcoming life’s struggles, "Jane Eyre" employs a rich lexicon while reporting on the plot’s many characters. Thus, this work allows students to prepare for two key types of ACT and SAT reading questions: understanding vocabulary in context and recalling details. (Tiffany Sorensen)

MACG on the song Beautiful Liar by VIXX:
“Beautiful Liar” is a K-pop gothic story. And no, we’re not talking modern goth. The literary Gothic stories such as “Wuthering Heights” or “Frankenstein.” The symbolism alone is enough to make my head spin, but to remember that these are the same guys who gave us “Dynamite“?! It’s mind boggling. (Jess)
