I never would have been interested in the Brontë sisters if it wasn't for meeting two sets of neighbours who lived side by side in Brontë Country, but didn't realize they did until meeting me at a brewery tour on my side of the planet (Australia) and then telling me all about why it was called Brontë Country -
All the world really is a stage I guess?-)
I can't help thinking how everything really is connected in life by some higher power as I read all about past authors and current day artists and actors/authors.
I only just watched the 2006 TV series on BritBox this week of 'Jane Eyre', which was adapted to the small screen from Emily's sister Charlote's book of the same name, and couldn't help thinking how the lightening hitting the tree in 'Jane Eyre' was very much like the lightning hitting the tree in Mary's book 'Frankenstein' and wondered just how much one author's works influence future author's works, and so on down the line of future works of art like a cosmic collective un/consciouness group mind?

Jane Austen passed away in 1817, the year before 'Frankenstien' was published?
I only subscribed to Britbox to watch Jane Austen shows so I didn't have to slog through boring romance novels borrowed from the local library:-)
