Jane Eyre - Scented Book Candle
Scent: Better Happy Than Dignified
Size: 12.5 oz.
This literary candle has been inspired by the first published novel by the Bronte sisters, kick-starting one of the most famous literary legacies of the 19th century.
Among women writers, Charlotte Bronte has a sure and certain place for all time (Britannica).
In 1846, Anne, Emily, and Charlotte published a poetry book under the pseudonyms Acton, Ellis, and Currer Bell.
They knew they would be taken more seriously if the public believed that they were men.
Charlotte also published Jane Eyre under the name Currer Bell.
When it became a bestseller, the literary world became consumed with learning more about the mysterious Bell brothers. Having corresponded by letter, Brontë’s publishers, Smith, Elder, and Company, had no idea that Currer Bell was a woman.
Remember, when Jane said: “I have not much pride under such circumstances: I would always rather be happy than dignified, and I ran after him - he stood at the foot of the stairs”.
The scent recalls the smell of rain, a crackling fireplace, with notes of wildflowers.
