To one another! for the world, which seems
To lie before us like a land of dreams,
So various, so beautiful, so new,
Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night.
--"Dover Beach" by Matthew Arnold
Regarding yesterday’s post about housing developments threatening Brontë tourism in Haworth, and Haworth’s restoration fundraiser.
You can do your part, literary friends, to help raise money for Haworth before January 20th! Purchase a funny calendar produced by the locals, or give money to the Haworth Church Restoration Fund. Every little bit counts!
