Last weekend the television show To Walk Invisible: The Lives of the Bronte Sisters was shown on Masterpiece. I was enraptured! I loved the show so much I watched it again the the very same day and then again on Monday. Each viewing gave me more to love and appreciate of the work and skill that was put into this production. After seeing it the first time I wanted to get out my Bronte collection and read them again! Last night I just contented myself with flipping through Jane Eyre and stopping to read at random places. It is the beauty of this particular book that you can do that and be entertained wherever you open up your book!
The scenery was astounding. Emily quoting her poetry on the moor just sent shivers down my spine.
Of the sisters in the show I loved Emily the best, she was so fierce and passionate. Anne and Charlotte were wonderful too, but Emily inspired me the most and I would like to believe that these amazing, wonderful women were really like what was portrayed in this production. I wondered how I could possibly find out, but then I realized that I already knew! You just have to read their books to know who they really were and then you can see that To Walk Invisible was faithful to them. A love letter on a grand scale!
