8. “There is enough said. Trouble no quiet, kind heart; leave sunny imaginations hope. Let it be theirs to conceive the delight of joy born again fresh out of great terror, the rapture of rescue from peril, the wondrous reprieve from dread, the fruition of return. Let them picture union and a happy succeeding life.” Which happy ending?The Telegraph and Argus reports that the Brontë Society has presented the Daphne Carrick scholarship for research:
Villette by Charlotte Brontë
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
Middlemarch by George Eliot
The Brontë Society is funding research into the famous writing family's links with Cornwall.The news is also reported on the Brontë Society's own website.
It has presented the Daphne Carrick Scholarship to Penzance woman Melissa Hardie-Budden to look into “Branwell Papers”.
She will assemble all possible documentary references to the Branwell and Carne families, ancestors of Charlotte, Emily and Anne.
The sisters’ mother and aunt, Maria and Elizabeth Branwell, moved from Penzance to Yorkshire in the early 1800s.
