Excerpt from A Discourse on Modern Sibyls

Endless histories of the Bronte's have been written Of late, but the stories of Jane Eyre, of Shirley, of Villette, are each in turn the best biographies of Charlotte Bronte and her sisters, told with that passion which coloured everything she touched. We have no need to be taught to admire her. She was a Sibyl indeed with oracles at her command. She ashed her inspira tions upon her readers, and all through the sadness of her life and its surroundings one realizes the passionate love which pervaded it, both for the people who belonged to her and the places and things to which she belonged. She was a poet. She owned, as only poets can own, the world all round about her. The freehold of the fells and the moors was hers, and of the great Yorkshire vault overhead; and above all that eager heart was hers, throbbing in the little frail body.
