    • Thanks Christy! I’m reading Villette as well.

      I’m understanding Lucy Snowe more and more with every page. I’m about 3/4s of the way through.

      The way in which Charlotte writes/describes Lucy’s emotions — particularly during her intense anxiety/mental breakdown — is extremely moving: “….Fate was of stone, and Hope a false idol…”

      So poetic.

      Lucy will never take the place of Jane Eyre for me, but I’ll be adding her to my favorite heroine list 🙂

      How are you liking Villette?
