Jane Erye vs. Charlotte Bronte

Charlotte Bronte, born in 1816 at Thornton, Yorkshire, England, is an English writer who
is one of three sisters, who are also famous for their writings. Bronte wrote Jane Eyre
based on her own life experiences, which is why the novel is subtitled "An Autobiography".
Much of the romantic appeal in Jane Eyre comes from Bronte's own personal history. Many
critics argue that the novel is simply a reflection of Bronte's life. Furthermore, there
are several ways in which, Bronte's life is similar to the life of Jane and the events
that take place in the novel.

Charlotte is described as simple, plain, and petite and the daughter of a clergyman just
like Jane. Whenever, Charlotte wanted to get away from her daily life, she would absorb
herself into the landscape and nature around her to relive her of stress and Jane is also

with her strict and religious aunt, Elisabeth Branwell, who is like Jane's aunt, Mrs.

    Film Noir Forty years after Raymond Borde and Étienne Chaumeton defined the challenge, critical commentators on film noir continue to grapple with it. Ironically, American writers did not immediately take up consideration of this indigenous phenomenon and the question of its "essential traits." Only gradually in a frequently cross-referenced series of essays in the 1970s did they begin to express themselves. There are now a dozen full-length books in English concerning film noir and undoubtedly

    Dominican music and film The Caribbean island nation of the Dominican Republic is little known by most Americans, but America is ever present in the Dominican consciousness. Until Sammy Sosa and Mark McGuire went head to head in the legendary homerun battle of 1998, few Americans were aware of any American-Dominican rivalry in western hemispheric culture. Nothing gave Dominicans more pride than to see Sosa hold Major League Baseballs homerun record, albeit for less than 24 hours before McGuire

    Americanization "If you ask me to name the proudest distinction of Americans, I would choose- because it contains all the others- the fact that they were the people who created the phrase to make money. No other language or nation had ever used these words before; men had always thought of wealth as a static quantity- to be seized, begged, inherited, shared, looted or obtained as a favor. Americans were the first to understand that wealth has to be created." Ayn Rand People have always been inte
