A Square In Brussels To Be Renamed In Honor Of The Bronte Sisters

Brussels is renaming one of its squares to honor the Bronte sisters. The two sisters, Charlotte and Emily, spent a lot of time there visiting friends. The sisters lived in Haworth, West Yorkshire before moving to Brussels. They moved in order to improve their French, so they could teach it. Two of Charlotte’s novels Villette and The Professor are set in Brussels.

The square will now be called the Place des soeurs Bronte/Zusters Bronteplein. The name change is apart of the feministation of street names in Koekelburg. The Bronte sisters are the first ones to be honored, and according to Helen MacEwan, author of Bronte in Brussels, this is just the first step for the feministation movement.  Now the Bronte sisters are not only pioneers of the 19th Century but the 21st Century as well.
There is also a school in Brussels that the sisters used to attend, however now it’s an arts center that has a plaque in their honor. The square is the kind of tribute the Bronte Brussels group were looking for. The square will be in Rue des Braves/Dapperentstratt and it will be home to a library. What a great way to honor the sisters; their novels made a big impact on the literary world and having a square dedicated to them is a great honor. Their legacy will continue to live on in the square and throughout all of Koekelburg. Soon, they will be joined by other women as the feministation continues.

Here Are Our Favorite 'Wuthering Heights' Memes!

Wuthering Heights is a gorgeous and outrageous novel about ridiculous people, and it’s frankly amazing this list isn’t a hundred entries long. What’s to say that hasn’t been said before? Sure, the book is a little bit of a bummer, but these memes are spicy and fun.
 

Just a casual drop by

Y’know, the way you just casually drop by post-death because you’re obsessed with someone. We’ve all been there, in the cold, hovering outside our ex’s window, screaming to come in to our old house. Relatable, right? It can’t just be me. And Cathy.

I gotta say, this does not seem like the way to anyone’s heart. I’m not really an expert, but I think the truly appalling results support my point, there are better ways to hit on someone than to marry someone else and then reject their ghost.
 

 

Hot takes

I mean, they’re complex, but they’re definitely not good, and each and every one of them is a complete disaster. Just, the choices. The way they treat each other. Everyone is too much and I dig it. What crazy, lovable jerks.

Honestly I just think someone should move on. Or get it together. Or something. These people’s choices are silly. I’m just saying, a lot of people’s lives all get scrambled and knotted, and everyone could have just been happy. They could have been happy!

Look how round! Too bad she died. The real Cathy was definitely hit by a meteor or something, right? All that height’s going to help her, she can just tap her nose on Heathcliff’s window, and he can pat her head like Jurassic Park.
