Commonweal Magazine reviews Cathy Curtis’s A Splendid Intelligence: The Life of Elizabeth Hardwick.
Hardwick’s literary journalism required not only intelligence but also endurance: all those word counts to hit, all those deadlines to meet. (“Amiability and endurance,” she writes, “are the clues to moral courage.”) The figures she admired in her 1974 collection Seduction and Betrayal—Emily Brontë, Zelda Fitzgerald, Jane Carlyle—were figures of great willpower, meeting life’s impediments with “incredible energy and [a] longing for discipline.” (Anthony Domestico)
AnneBrontë.org has a post on Charlotte Brontë and Charles Dickens. Brontë Babe Blog has read Jodi Taylor’s The Nothing Girl as a Jane Eyre-inspired fairy tale for adults.
