as long as I live!

And if anyone asks me

how you treated me,

I'll say you are bad,

and hardhearted and mean.

The very sight of you makes me sick!

At school, I shall have drawing lessons

and French lessons and history lessons

and music lessons,

and there'll be hundreds of other girls

to play with.

And, uh, what's the name of

this school of yours?

It's called Lowood.



(Lowood lnstitution, Henry Brocklehurst

Esq., Chairman of the Board of Trustees)

Here you are.

she's been asleep for hours.

Ride away, Bill.

I was to awaken in the morning to

find mydreams of Lowood shattered.

In their place was to stand a school

that was more like a prison,

dominated by the cold, implacable

crueIty of Mr. Brocklehurst.

Pupils, observe this child.

She is yet young.

She possesses the ordinary form

of girlhood.

No single deformity points her out as

a marked character.

Who would believe that the evil one

had already found in her a servant

and an agent?

Yet such, I grieve to tell you,

is the case.

Therefore, you must be on

your guard against her.

Shun her example, avoid her company,

exclude her from your sports,

and shut her out from your converse.

Teachers! You must watch her,

weigh well her words,

and scrutinize her actions.

Punish her body to save her soul.

For it is my duty to warn you,

and my tongue faIters as l tell it,

that this girl, this child,

the native of a Christian land,

no better than many a little heathen

that said its prayers to Brahma

and kneels before Jagannath.

This girl is a liar.

Let her remain on that stool.Let no one

speak to her for the rest of the day.

I brought you this from supper.

Didn't you hear what he said?

He said you mustn't have anything

to do with me.

Go on. Take it.

Charlotte Brontë

Charlotte Brontë (, commonly ; 21 April 1816 – 31 March 1855) was an English novelist and poet, the eldest of the three Brontë sisters who survived into adulthood and whose novels have become classics of English literature. She enlisted in school at Roe Head in January 1831, aged 14 years. She left the year after to teach her sisters, Emily and Anne, at home, returning in 1835 as a governess. In 1839 she undertook the role as governess for the Sidgwick family, but left after a few months to return to Haworth where the sisters opened a school, but failed to attract any students. Instead they turned to writing and they each first published in 1846 under the pseudonyms of Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell. Her first novel The Professor was rejected by publishers, her second novel Jane Eyre was published in 1847, although it was not initially well received; one critic described it as a "pre-eminently an anti-Christian composition". The sisters admitted to their Bell pseudonyms in 1848, and by the following year were celebrated in London literary circles. Brontë experienced the early deaths of all her siblings. She became pregnant shortly after her marriage in June 1854 but died on 31 March 1855 of tuberculosis or possibly typhus. more…
