When sorrow becomes beauty

  She is a persistent woman who gives her whole heart not for fame and fortune, but for love;
  she is a woman who is accompanied by loneliness, the desolation of the wasteland and the departure of her relatives make her bloom the flower of life in the loneliness and pain;
  she She is a woman who has nothing to do with beauty, like an insignificant heather growing on the wasteland.
  She was powerless to resist in reality, so she had to entrust her protagonist to resist in her works: to eliminate cowardice in reality with the struggle in the works, to eliminate the misery in reality with the happiness in the works, and to eliminate the reality with the equality in the works The inequality of … It was not until the “Jane Eyre” handed down as favored by many readers that people remembered this ordinary and great name-Charlotte Bronte.
  
  She came from the moor
  
  Charlotte Bronte was born on April 21, 1816, into a priestly family in Thornton, England, and she was the third child in the family. Then there are two younger sisters, Emily and Annie. Charlotte and her two sisters were later called the Brontë sisters in the literary world.
  Charlotte’s father, Patrick Bronte, was born in a poor rural family. He learned to strike iron, worked as a weaver and a cloth dealer. With his own ingenuity and a coincidence of chance, Patrick, who was born in a poor family, entered the market. The opportunity to study at Cambridge, and received a bachelor’s degree, after graduation was appointed parish priest. Charlotte’s mother, Maria Branwell, was a petite, playful and well-educated woman. It was a happy family until Bronte moved with the family to Haworth for work reasons.
  In 1820, the Brontës moved to the Haworth vicarage, when Charlotte was only 4 years old. No one thought that it was in Haworth that the harsh living environment and a series of unfortunate blows made her lose her mother and five siblings in less than 30 years; it was also there, Her eloquent Irish nature was almost wiped out and replaced by silence and shyness; and it was also there that the emptiness and desolation of the moor kept her away from the hustle and bustle of the world, from the beautiful dresses and the lively balls , luxurious halls, magnificent carriages, these material temptations. Only thinking, thinking and meditating on herself, her relatives, nature, religion and society has become her lifelong companion.
  There are no cute toys, no beautiful clothes, no warm and happy family atmosphere, and no meticulous care and care from parents. In short, a happy childhood in the general sense has nothing to do with Charlotte. The conscientious and responsible Pastor Brontë obviously did not have much time to take care of the children. After his wife passed away, Pastor Brontë was more willing to stay in the study by himself and do his own business. The unique family atmosphere makes the children of the Brontë family much quieter than the children of ordinary families. The usual noise of children is not often seen in the pastor’s house. The children have found their own fun, that is, everyone sits together. Read quietly. This childhood reading training had a subtle influence on their later writing, especially that of the Brontë sisters.
  Haworth is not a good place to live, it is often rainy or shrouded in fog, and it is cold and humid for most of the year. Especially in the long winter, the continuous heavy snow covered the town, and the entire Haworth seemed to have entered an eternal hibernation. The Yorkshiremen who have lived there for a long time are unconsciously affected by it, and their mood is always up and down. The feelings brought by this environment are obviously also integrated into Charlotte’s blood. Whether it is from her own life or from her series of works, it is not difficult for us to find that the changes in this environment have affected her. Influence, a lingering sense of wasteland, flows or seeps between the lines of her words.
  When Charlotte with an Irish accent first walked into the metropolis of London, when she became an indispensable member of the British literary world, the unique temperament permeated in herself and her works told everyone – She came from the wasteland.
  
  Pleasure in the midst of suffering
  
  There are too many setbacks and misfortunes in Charlotte’s life, and her life itself is a sad story. From the loss of her mother at a young age to the loss of her siblings, she experienced the most complete heartbreak in the world. Pursuing perfect love, but unable to escape the fate of being “passionate but being ruthlessly annoyed”; longing to have enough time to gallop in the creative world, but forced by life to do the work of a tutor that he hates. She is always out of the reality of being an ordinary pastor’s daughter, and her heart’s wings fly to the ideal kingdom of heaven. When she wakes up suddenly, she still sees a boundless desolate wasteland. People will walk, dreams will wake up, only loneliness, like a lingering ghost, always follows Charlotte. The unpredictable clouds that were gloomy and bright at that time on the wasteland also witnessed her loneliness. An ordinary person would never observe them like her, but she was like watching her close friend, reading a book. Books that fascinated her. No writer has portrayed the agonizing struggle of a lonely soul better than Charlotte, because no one has felt loneliness more deeply than she.
  People who have been living in happiness are always easy to ignore those small joys. For a person who has experienced too many disappointments, the occasional trace of happiness can make her feel happy. Although Charlotte’s grief is like an endless desert, there are always small oasis dotted in it, supporting her in her bumpy journey.
  Friends are Charlotte’s most important source of happiness. She is not someone who opens her heart to others easily, and can’t have countless friends wherever she goes like some people. And once she identifies as a confidant, she is destined for a lifetime of friendship, as evidenced by her friends Mary Taylor and Ellen Nassi. In the more than 400 letters she wrote to Ellen, they are full of sincere concern, sincere thoughts, small joys, faint sadness, and some helpless complaints and inescapable troubles. Writing the letter itself was already a joy for her, especially when the thought of her outpouring of feelings would be shared by another person who truly cared about her brought a ray of sunshine into her miserable life.
  A long life in the wilderness gave Charlotte a keen observation and a deep love for nature. Needless to say, the wasteland in her hometown, the flowers and grasses growing there, and even the black rock rocks scattered in the wasteland have always attracted her attention and reverie. Every scene of nature is a miracle to her, especially the roaring and calm sea at that time, which obviously gave her an unforgettable life experience. Charlotte likes to feel the beauty and magic of nature alone. In nature, she can always enter a state of ecstasy, and the joy brought by that mysterious experience has become her usual method to get rid of her mental predicament.
  
  ”Jane Eyre” came out The
  
  original writing may just be to record one’s own emotions, to show the space of one’s imagination, and to comfort the loneliness and emptiness in reality. But as we get older, this love for words grows stronger, and is no longer a simple, dispensable preference. And once in her own writing space, her colorful, bizarrely changing life begins to dominate. That kind of imagination is different from the warm and beautiful fantasy that ordinary people long for, but a wonderful, grotesque and grandiose imagination.
  At the age of 30, Charlotte felt that she was about to withdraw from the imaginary world she was used to and depended on. She began to describe reality realistically. That illusory color that adds to them.
  Charlotte came to Manchester in 1846 to take care of her sick father. It was in a small house in this strange city that she began to brew and write her second novel, Jane Eyre. Charlotte seems to have developed an ability to write in a noisy environment since she was a child. She can stop immediately when her mind is the most agile to meet the various demands made by her father. After taking care of her father properly, she And can quickly enter the creative world.
  During that month in Manchester, Charlotte felt like she was having a good time, so she wrote fast and made the most of the time she had. When Charlotte and her father returned to Haworth at the end of September, she had a heavy bag of manuscripts in her hands.
  When her two younger sisters heard that she had decided to make the heroine small and unattractive, they both thought the idea was risky, but Charlotte was very insistent: “I want to prove to you that you Wrong. I will show you a heroine who is as ordinary and small as me, and she will be as attractive as your heroine.” In this way, Charlotte continued to create according to her own ideas, after many ideas And the night of creation, “Jane Eyre” was finally completed.
  In 1848, the shocking work of “Jane Eyre” caused a frenzy among readers, and the obsession of tens of thousands of readers proved the great success of “Jane Eyre”. People are moved by the intense plot, unique and distinctive characters, and plain but shocking language in the book.

  Those discerning literary veterans praised the value of this work. Thackeray, a contemporary writer deeply admired by Charlotte, said it was the best English novel he had read for the first time in years.
  ”Jane Eyre” is a page of bizarre brilliance in the British and even the world’s literary gallery. Today, more than 100 years later, it has been translated into more than 20 languages, and together with Charlotte’s other works, it has been adapted many times into a movie or TV series that is deeply loved by the audience, and has become a spiritual wealth shared by people all over the world. Charlotte Brontë was also included in the annals of history with this book, becoming a name people will never forget.
  
  Sadness is always related to love.
  
  Charlotte knows that she does not have the unique charm of women, and that God has not given her a beautiful face. According to her classmates, Charlotte was small and thin when she was a teenager, and as she herself said, “not long enough”. Her childhood habit of writing in very large numbers and in very small fonts forced her to wear glasses with thick lenses.
  When Charlotte was 23 years old, two pastors proposed to her successively, but based on her fundamental attitude towards marriage is to have love, Charlotte rejected the two suitors without hesitation. Charlotte has such a near-perfect expectation of love that she sometimes doesn’t believe that it really exists, or that even if it did, it would be so fortunate to befall her. So even though in the Victorian era, choosing to be an old maid not only meant walking a long life alone, and even more daunting, at times she was publicly insulted for it, Charlotte gave A friend’s letter said that he intended to never get married. And this is just a helpless excuse for a perfectionist in love when he is not confident in reality.
  Later she fell in love with a married man who loved his wife deeply. Love, when it can’t get the other party’s response, when the whole-hearted devotion is not accepted by the other party as love, it seems so powerless and sad, and the love at this time, for its giver, that makes The bitterness of heartbreak can completely drown out the occasional sweetness. Charlotte struggled countless times to get out of this wrong relationship, just like any other woman who has suffered so much.
  Charlotte’s ultimate emotional affiliation was Arthur Bell Nichols, curator of Mr Bronte, an Irishman of Scottish ancestry who had labored hard in the North and was remarkably secure and reasonable. , but not very interesting people. After the marriage, Nichols protected Charlotte in every possible way. She said: “May God make me grateful and contented. I have a kind, kind, and loving husband, and my love for him is growing day by day.”
  However, this ordinary and happy married life was only 9 months. When she just realized the sweetness of the real love that Nichols brought her, on the morning of March 31, 1855, Charlotte was ill forever. left, three weeks before her 39th birthday.
  Although happiness is so short-lived, it existed after all. Charlotte experienced true happiness at the end of her life after all. She left with deep love, and she will no longer be alone in heaven.
