For all their show of strength,
their straight backs,
and strong will,
Charlotte Bronte & Edith Wharton still exhibit a profound entrenchment in social prisons.
Charlotte in her rewrite of Emily’s work so that it appears tamer, less grim and more Christian and Edith who lingered in a love-less marriage because divorce was unacceptable.
Neither woman, though pioneers, were truly free.
Are you allowing yourself to be held back by societal expectations or other prisons?
