Dictionary Definition : Jane: Also known as "Ally," "Allison," and "freshmeat," this female Homo Sapiens specimen has proven herself a strong member of the Literary Cabinet world. One can recognize "Jane" by her taste in, especially older, men, many of them classic fictional characters, as well as her distinct fear of drama class auditions. Like many of the other species in the Literary Cabinet Universe, she is crazy in her own right.

They are some of the greatest English authors, and I have enjoyed each book of their's that I have read. I was just wondering how many Bronte fans there are out there, what books you've read, and who you enjoyed the most. Which author's characters do you think were the best? Whose writing sounded the best? I've always thought of Charlotte as the best, but I know some of you have other opinions.

Also, has anyone else read Anne Bronte? No one I've asked before has read anthing by her.

Common names include Nicholle, CQ (Chocolate Queen), Crackhead, and Miss Martini Maniac. Lately, this individual has reportedly been seen dancing in a banana costume and drinking an excessive amount of martinis.

I like the Bronte sisters as well. I've read Charlotte's Jane Eyre, and Emily's Wuthering Heights. Like many other people, I haven't read anything by Anne, by I really should eventually.

I prefer Charlotte Bronte over Emily Bronte and I love Jane and Edward. Very Happy

Dictionary Definition : Louisa Lynn--a unique specimen of the female gender of Homo Sapiens that has almost everything in common with another species: Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous. This specimen is always found with Asian (Filipino) descent and is a loyal friend to the "good side" during the epic Choco War. A common mutualistic companion found with this specimen is a Pokemon (most likely, the epic Arceus). This species is closely related to the species Homo Sapiens Tourterelleous. Common names include Lynn's Angel.

I love the Bronte sisters! But truthfully, I haven't read anything by Anne Bronte yet, but I really should some time. I read Charlotte's Jane Eyre and Emily's Wuthering Heights. If Emily hadn't died a year after its publication, she could have written more wonderful books.

I prefer Jane Eyre to Wuthering Heights. Too much vengeance and hate in WH. Laughing

It's hard to find Anne's books. She's just not as famous. And to be honest, there's a reason for it. I love The Tenant of Wildfell Hall so far, but Anne's writing doesn't flow as well as her sisters'. She uses enough commas to make my head spin.

Dictionary Definition : Zara Sahana 007- Also known as "Zara," this abnormal specimen of the female gender of Homo Sapiens exhibits various bizarre behaviors. The most common of these include James Bond obsession, video game fever, and perhaps the strangest of all, a certain fondness for mathematics. Similar to other Homo Sapiens of the Literary Cabinet world, Zara Sahana 007 displays procrastination in brilliant forms, but will not admit to her oddball ways

I've read Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights is on my "You better finish it soon, Zara" list. So far, I prefer Jane Eyre. It would be interesting to find something by Anne Bronte...

Like most of you, I've read Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. I prefer Jane Eyre, though -- there's more character depth, or at least that's what I felt.

Sadly, I haven't read anything by Anne!

Dictionary Definition : Rodent - Homo Rodentiensis is a typical LC creature. Always ready to laugh about stupidity, this being has long occupied a special moderator status on the LC. As one of the very few LC creatures who actually can get and keep a partner, she is the object of constant envy. Though madness is not part of the average Rodents characteristics, this particular feature can at times be subject to change, especially when striken by severe sleep deprivation.

The only thing I've read by Anne Bronte is a quote

~But he who dares not grasp the thorn should never crave the rose.~

I adore the Bronte sisters. I've read Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte, but nothing else.
I think Charlotte is the most prolific sister, but I've always been drawn to Emily's tense poetry, which was absolutely enchanting. And I've always like Wuthering Heights, in my opinion, a very graphic novel expounding on the consequences of pride and obsessive, violent love. (which wasn't hardly love, but more obsessive occupation)

It was sad that Emily died so quick. She had a lot of genius. I know WT is super violent and hateful, but I think that makes me appreciate the gentle, pure love of the younger Cathy. Plus, instead of promoting obsessions, like Twilight does, it shows the hateful and horrible consequences of it. elephant

I finished Anne Bronte's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall today. I suggest it to everyone here, especially if you liked Jane Eyre. The story kept me turning pages like crazy, and the writing was better than I had hoped for. Really great book.

I haved loved Jane Eyre since I first read it at 9 and have jsut recently read The Professor and that was brilliant!

I have a Sony Reader and a DS Lite and have the classics for both so will read Shirley, Villette and Wildfell Hall which are on them and I have Agnes Grey too.

I wasn't so keen on Wuthering Heights as much and would never read it again!

Dictionary Definition : Laura: Also known as "Solveig", her internet pseudonym, this female specimen of Homo Sapiens founded the Literary Cabinet world. One can spot "Laura," by the fun she has grading papers and drinking coffee, with triple coffee consumption ever since she quit smoking. Like another species, Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous, she enjoys picking at the extreme Twilight fans. This specimen is particularly fond of procrastinating, as most of the other species of the Literary Cabinet Universe are.

I am currently reading Jane Eyre and really love it. As embarassed as I am about this, I have not read Wuthering Heights! I just recently decided to start reading the classic love stories, like Austen's novels and the Bronte sister's. Oh, the shame! Embarassed haha But as I get farther along in Jane Eyre, I will be able to give a more thorough opinion. Smile
