Jane EyreMay 17, 2008
What have I been doing lately? One thing is that I am reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. WOW! What a good read. The story line is good but what I really love about it is the vocabulary. Ms Bronte has such a command of words. She uses very descriptive words so that there is no misunderstanding what her meaning is. She uses words such as lugubrious, confabulation, imposing, phlegmatic and pith.
OK, so a few of them I had to look up in the dictionary to see what the meaning was, but once I read the definition there was no misunderstanding! 🙂
I’m only half way through Jane Eyre but already I can tell that I will be reading it again.
