C. S. Lewis. Doesn't he look just like you imagine Digory? There is honesty in those eyes, along with a fair amount of mischief. Wonder if this is before or after his mum died.

Charlotte Brontë (1816-1855) “I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”
Charlotte Bronte (1816-1855) English novelist, author of Jane Eyre (under the psedonym of Currer Bell). Charlotte married late and became pregnant soon after her wedding, but her health declined rapidly and, according to Gaskell, she was attacked by "sensations of perpetual nausea and ever-recurring faintness (what would now be diagnosed as often fatal form of morning sickness). She died, with her unborn child, on 31 March 1855, aged 38. #nomorolemodels #childless
Charlotte Brontë (April 21, 1816 – March 31, 1855) attended the Clergy Daughter's School in Cowan Bridge. Her two older sisters died of consumption because of the malnutrition and harsh treatment they suffered at the school. Charlotte and Emily Bronte returned home after the tragedy. Despite several proposals of marriage, she did not accept an offer until 1854 when she married the Reverend A. B. Nicholls. One year later, at the age of 39, she died of pneumonia while she was pregnant.

7 Famous Authors Who Were Rejected and Finally Made It Big ...
Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin, best known by her pseudonym George Sand, was a remarkable woman - a prodigious novelist, dramatist and campaigner for all manner of political reform. A rebellious, cross-dressing, cigar-smoking, scandalously-acting woman writer who lived at a time that was certainly much more of a man's world than today. Chopin was only one of many famous men in her life. After the relationship fell apart, in 1847, he scarcely composed again, before his death two years later.

George Sand, remarkable French woman - a prodigious novelist, dramatist and campaigner for all manner of political reform. A rebellious, cross-dressing, cigar-smoking, scandalous lady years ahead of her time. Chopin was only one of many famous men in her life. Would have fitted in nicely with 1960's California.
Georges Sand ~ Real name: Amandine Aurore Lucile Dupin, was born on July 1 1804, and was a respected female French writer with a penchant for wearing mens' clothes - which, in 19th Century Paris, caused quite the scandal. Her works included novels, plays and both literary and political comment pieces.
CLEO DE MERODE. NOT "Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin (George Sand)." ( Sachant que George Sand est morte en 1876, et que cette photo représente une " belle 1900" ...ça ne peut pas être elle !)
The burlesque dancer and 'demi-mondaine' Cléo de Mérode, a famous woman in the years 1890-1900. Like George Sand, she had many lovers, but the comparison ends here.

Fiodor Dostoievski 1821 // 1881- Escritor russo "Conhecemos um homem pelo seu riso; se na primeira vez que o encontramos ele ri de maneira agradável, o íntimo é excelente."
Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821 – 1881) was a Russian novelist, short story writer, essayist, journalist and philosopher. Dostoyevsky's literary works explore human psychology in the troubled political, social, and spiritual atmosphere of 19th-century Russia. Author of Crime and Punishment, The Idiot and The Brothers Karamazov.
"Deprived of meaningful work, men and women lose their reason for existence; they go stark raving mad." Fyodor Dostoevsky
“People speak sometimes about the "bestial" cruelty of man, but that is terribly unjust and offensive to beasts, no animal could ever be so cruel as a man, so artfully, so artistically cruel.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky
"What is hell? I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love." Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821–1881) was a Russian novelist, short story writer, essayist, and philosopher. Literary works explore human psychology in the troubled political, social, and spiritual atmosphere of 19th-century Russia. Many of his works contain a strong emphasis on Christianity, and its message of absolute love, forgiveness and charity, explored within the realm of the individual, confronted with all of life's hardships and beauty.
Fyodor Dostoevsky, oddly enough looking intense and a tiny bit depressed.
notes from the underground and the double by fyodor dostoyevsky
"The more conscious I was of goodness and of all that was 'sublime and beautiful', the more deeply I sank into my mire and the more ready I was to sink in it altogether." Fyodor Dostoevsky b. 1821 (Russia), d.1881

pictured above: Lucien Carr, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and William Burroughs, 1944 Crazy Beatnik Killers! That would be the title of the 1950s Hollywood cheapo exploitation film, anyway. No surprise that an even better title was cooked up by co-writers Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs. "The Hippos Were Boiled in Their Tanks", a new novel co-written by the two giants of the Beat Generation, is set to be published. The book was written over sixty years ago, was inspired by a murder that led to their arrests, the 1944 stabbing of David Kammerer by Lucien Carr, a friend of the writers and another Beat. Carr served two years after pleading guilty to manslaughter, claiming Kammerer had been obsessed with him and had become a violent stalker. After the killing, Carr confessed to Kerouac and Burroughs, who helped him dispose of the knife but did not go to police. Kerouac was arrested as an accessory to the killing in 1944 and was put in a Bronx jail but he was freed after his girlfriend, Edie Parker, posted bail. Burroughs was also arrested, but escaped incarceration. The book is an early work, and probably not very good since neither writer was eager to see it published. Of course, Kerouac and Burroughs went on to worldwide fame with the publication of their later works, "On the Road," and "Naked Lunch," respectively. Penguin Classics will publish the new book in November. Hear Kerouac recite "The Moon in Her Majesty" by clicking here.

Samuel Beckett laughing, yes, laughing. Well, I'm not sure why, because there is plenty of dark humour in his plays like Waiting For Godot, but I just never think of Samuel Beckett (1906-1989) as a laughing kind of man so I was startled by this wonderful photograph of the man, not just laughing, but, well, corpsing. It is truly charming and, for any of us feeling a bit down at the moment, inspiring. If, after-all, Beckett can laugh, well, then I'm pretty damned sure I can too even though I've got the 'flu. A more familiar Beckett expression Here's a Beckett joke: "There's man all over for you, blaming on his boots the fault of his feet." - well I thought it was funny. I'm indebted to the fine Irish poet Noel Duffy for this Utube clip of another Irish poet, the charming John Montague, who has some amusing Beckett anecdotes:
