Lukas Moodysson, Coco Moodysson comic book Stars:
I have reviewed the whole book in a separate postbut here I want to focus on a particular insight. Near the end of the book, in or thereabouts, the author has an encounter with a lady called Herma, a budding psychic one of many in the book!
As a young man, he was trained as a portrait painter and worked at this in Bradford in the late s.
His most famous portrait is actually of his three sisters. Anne was already employed there as a tutor to the children of the Robinson family. So far so good. However, things began to fall apart after a secret affair between Branwell and the lady of the house was exposed.
It appears that Mrs. Lydia Robinson shown right appreciated rather more about Branwell than just his tutoring abilities. But it was not to be. Branwell right was dismissed as soon as the affair was discovered, and was perhaps even paid to keep his silence.
He thereafter became an alcoholic, spending more and more time at the Black Bull Inn. He also appears to have become addicted to opium. His behaviour became increasingly irrational and self-destructive.
His family did not even realise that he was seriously ill until he collapsed outside the house. He died a short while later, miserable that he had done nothing with his life. As the only son in the family, there must have been a lot of pressure on Branwell to succeed and become the future breadwinner.
Both he and Charlotte alike felt that he had utterly failed. Branwell seems to be regarded as a bit of a bad boy, or at least a promising lad gone bad. There is a biography of Branwell by Daphne du Maurier entitled: Branwell, like John, was an artist and a poet.
Branwell drank and did drugs, actually he did more than doing drugs, he was an addict. Branwell, like John, lost his mother at an early age, and had sisters but no brothers.In her poem Because I could not stop for Death, Emily Dickinson depicts a close encounter with Death and Immortality.
She uses personification to portray Death and Immortality as characters. Her familiarity with Death and Immortality at the beginning of the poem causes the reader to feel at ease with the idea of Death.

Reader, I gave it five stars. Please let me tell you why. Jane Eyre is the quintessential Victorian novel. It literally has everything that was typical of the period, but, unlike other novels, it has all the elements in one story.
