Charlotte Brontë: Why Villette is better than Jane Eyre Everybody knows Jane Eyre, but Charlotte Brontë's greatest and most original novel was her last, Villette
Everybody knows Jane Eyre, but Charlotte Brontë's greatest and most original novel was her last, Villette. Charlotte Brontë wrote not one but two masterpieces. Most readers know Jane Eyre. Even non-readers feel they know it, because they have seen a film version, or just because it is a part of our common culture. But Villette, Brontë’s last and – to my mind – greatest novel, is less popular, perhaps because it is so uncompromising and so original. It is high time it was recognised as the blazin
Charlotte Brontë: Why Villette is better than Jane Eyre (?!?) - Telegraph
Everybody knows Jane Eyre, but Charlotte Brontë's greatest and most original novel was her last, Villette. Charlotte Brontë wrote not one but two masterpieces. Most readers know Jane Eyre. Even non-readers feel they know it, because they have seen a film version, or just because it is a part of our common culture. But Villette, Brontë’s last and – to my mind – greatest novel, is less popular, perhaps because it is so uncompromising and so original. It is high time it was recognised as the blazing work it is. Reading it you enter an area of experience – of passion and disappointment and the violent return of the repressed – that has seldom been so lucidly articulated.

Watch Piotr Dumala's Wonderful Animations of Literary Works by Kafka and Dostoevsky | Open Culture
Piotr Dumala - Zbrodnia i Kara Crime and Punishment, Dumala’s idiosyncratic half-hour Dostoevsky adaptation (which we’ve featured previously), uses “destructive animation” to similar effect as in Kafka and Walls, creating shadowy, minimalist set pieces that emerge slowly from darkness and return to it. But this time, Dumala incorporates color—greens, reds, and browns—and the images are much more detailed, almost painterly.

So what is literature? According to Kiefer, "we think of literature as the imaginative shaping of life and thought into the forms and structures of language"(5).Literature can provide us with an unimaginable amount of information as well as teach us values and morals. It is so important for everyone to read literature from a young age and explore what they like and connect with. I thought that this video was creative way of illustrating what literature is and why it's important.
