Example text

The Angrian visions of her Roe Head Journal and associated poems, unmediated by Lord Charles, reflect her own infatuation with her hero, whose power is cruel, gratuitous, and hypnotic: “I had really utterly forgot where I was and all the gloom & cheerlessness of my situation. I felt myself breathing quick and short as I beheld the Duke lifting up his sable crest” (Brontë 2007, 156). She has assumed Lord Charles’s role of voyeur. In another fragmentary scene she describes the debauched Quashia defiling the bed 24 Christine Alexander of Mary Percy in a drunken stupor, “savagely exulting” in his sexual and political power.

Charlotte depicts him as continually inciting quarrels, avoiding work and with a “constant disposition to all kinds of mischief”—acting more like “an evil brownie than a legitimate fairy” (Brontë 1987, 1: 202). Clearly Branwell resented the fairy tale element of her play and resisted Charlotte’s influence as much as she resisted his. His interest in the supernatural derived not from fairy tale but from the Greek myths and legends of his Latin and Greek lessons: in the Young Men’s Play he envisages himself as a Zeus‐like figure riding on the clouds and dispensing bolts of lightning and thunder (Branwell had learned that “Brontë” means “thunder” in Greek).
