Which Classic Female Author Are You?

You got: Emily Dickinson

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.”

You got: Charlotte, Anne, and Emily Brontë

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.
