Jane Austen vs. Emily Brontë: who’s the queen of English literature ⚔️📚❤️
Author Kate Mosse and academic John Mullan debated the relative merits of these two 19th-century pioneer novelists.
Both parties debated well mannered, eschewing negativity, throwing occasional hostile points, yet remained friendly 📖 ...simply brilliant! I enjoyed every minute of it! Have you watch it yet 🍿 who is to you the Queen of English literature
You don’t have to ask me 😋 I liked Wuthering Heights, but I admit that’s the only book of #EmilyBronte
I ever read. But #JaneAusten...
❤️📖 I read all classics and that multiple times.
Best part of the debate was when Mullan went on to extol Austen's brilliance and "wonderful sentences", pointed to the opening scene of #PrideAndPrejudice
to suggest she was "the greatest writer of dialogue in English literature". He went on to call her pioneering use of free indirect style "the most important invention in the history of the novel". 👏👏👏 yes!!! 📚 🖋
