Abstract:On April 21st will occur the first centenary of the birth of Charlotte Brontë. And on March 31st last it was sixty-one years since she died. It was here, in the Parish of Thornton, she was born, and it was in another Parish not very far away that she passed to “where beyond these voices there is peace.” Most of her life, i.e. of her external life, was passed, therefore in Yorkshire, except for those two short intervals in Brussels, which, nevertheless, left a deeper mark on her mind and heart than all the years spent elsewhere. For when we hear or speak the name of Charlotte Brontë we think less of life's externals than of those deep interior emotions and passions and srmpathies without which the external things of the world are of little human interest or importance.
