Poll ‘Which Bronte are you?’

Cast yourself back into the 1830’s.  Out on the winding windy moors…sorry coming over all Kate Bush here.  You live in an old draughty parsonage overlooking a muddy overcrowded graveyard which frequently floods.  You live on a diet of mainly potatoes, your drinking water isn’t all it should be and your under 5 ft tall. You share the draughty house with your clergyman Father, who’s getting on in years, your equally old Aunt Branwell, monied but quite tight fisted with it.   You have one servant, Martha Brown who is more like one of the family and she frightens the living daylights out of you with her  ghost stories as you and the other children sit around the fire in the evening  with the wind wuthering around the house. We’ve all been there.  But – which Bronte are you?  which Bronte do you think you are most like – and why?

I’ll go first.  I can’t claim to be the Full Bronte so I suppose I would be most like a hybrid of Branwell (I won’t be told, highly strung and always getting into hot water and the pub :-))  The other half would be Charlotte (small, stroppy, bossy and likes writing 🙂

Video by  thanks!

  1. Mr Hubson Says:

    Who wouldn’t want to be a bit of a Branwell…an 1830s version of a rock n roll rebel.

  2. Branwell Bronte by default. lol I am a fan of Kate Bush. Creative post, Lynda. Looking forward to the next poetry challenge 🙂

    • YES one for Branwell! I’m a hybrid of him and Charlotte but unfortunately you only get one vote and I’d already pressed Charlotte 😦 (she was not amused :-D) More poetry challenges coming soon!
