Which Classic Female Author Are You?
You're the eccentric, cryptic, and hyper-focused recluse of the 19th Century. Dickinson wrote about faith, nature, and death (hardcore, right?), proving she was versatile and all the hours she spent writing did not go to waste. “That it will never come again is what makes life so sweet.”
All three sisters published novels under pseudonyms, Currer (Charlotte), Ellis (Emily), and Acton (Anne), with differing levels of success. The sisters were educated, ambitious, and some of the best writers ever. “I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will" — am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will," — Charlotte.
You're the multi-talented author, poet, dancer, and activist. You'll always be remembered for your profound poetry and your participation in the Civil Rights Movement with Malcolm X and Martin Luther King. You were so badass, you even made Tupac Shakur cry. “I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass.”
You're the epic novelist, playwright, and children's author. You've spoken out against censorship and have proven you're one of the most prolific writers of all-time. “Beauty was not simply something to behold; it was something one could do.”
You're the mad-talented super observant writer of the 19th Century. People love your characters and gripping novels. “Stupid men are the only ones worth knowing after all.”
“Perhaps it is better to wake up after all, even to suffer, rather than to remain a dupe to illusions all one’s life.”
You're the troubled, badass author and poet. You're anything but boring and one of the most exciting young poets of all time. "Perhaps when we find ourselves wanting everything, it is because we are dangerously close to wanting nothing."
You're the rockstar author, playwright, and Princeton professor. You aren't the best at Twitter but you're super talented and amazing in just about every way possible. "I never change, I simply become more myself."
You've won a Nobel Prize in literature and transformed millions of lives with your amazing short stories. "The conversation of kisses. Subtle, engrossing, fearless, transforming."
You're the English novelist, essayist, and literary critic that shaped 20th Century ideas about art, sex, gender, and literature. Her super creative, whimsical stream of consciousness writing displayed her true intellectual freedom and paved the way for many artists to come.“You cannot find peace by avoiding life.”
You're the emphatic novelist, poet, and dancer of the Lost Generation. Some scholars try to downplay your brilliance, but never mind them. Scott would have been nothing without you. “Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much the heart can hold.”
