About This Quiz

The Bronte sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne were storytellers from a young age. Growing up in the moors of Yorkshire, England, they wrote stories to keep themselves occupied. This became the foundation for greatness to come. Later, they sharpened their writing chops by becoming teachers and governesses. They were worldly women who had aspirations to go beyond their English homes, eventually traveling to Brussels to improve their French. The theme of education and travel would show up in their various novels. One of the most famous Bronte novels, "Jane Eyre,"  centered on an intelligent English teacher and governess who wanted to live independently.

The forward-thinking women behind these timeless, feminist novels had life experiences that shaped what they wrote and delivered to the world. Forced to write under pen names, they knew what it was like to be intelligent women confined by society. Like them, the characters they created, like Jane Eyre, Agnes Grey, and Helen Huntingdon, sought their freedom in their circumstances. Centuries later, we're still reading their universal stories. The strength the Brontes exhibited in their lives and their writing resonates across space and time. Take our quiz, and see how you compare to these women who were ahead of their time. Find out which storytelling sister you are!
