Compare and contrast Anne’s connection with German philosophy with Emily’s.


Anne didn't study philosophy but was more didactic and religious in her writing than Emily, who provided no moral imperative. Anne was raised a Calvinist but her writing urged moral redemption, forgiveness and charity via self-determination and faith in God. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is an example of her belief that people can and should grow personally and spiritually, through Christ's example. Emily's writing posits that God is within individuals and that heaven is on earth, which is more representative of the German Romantic tradition.

#2.

I’m glad you might get this resolved. I hope you do.

Emily, in effect, was sort of pantheistic, perhaps transcendental in the Emerson sense.

Yes, to an extent. She was inspired by Goethe and Schiller. Darwinism, power, and survival of the fittest were another recurring theme.

I'm totally off topic though. Yes #2 -- my insurance said Friday that they STILL need more information. :(

Nope. #1. I like Brussels Sprouts and detest liver, though I like the scent of liver when it’s being cooked.

True. Actually, I've never even had liver. My parents didn't like it so I never had to try.

1. I'm making coffee.

2. I'm thinking of delving into a book.

3. I'm making scones.
