A few weeks ago, we studied middle grade books with Gothic influences. It totally inspired me to think about a few of my favorite Gothic novels for today’s marry, date, or dump. We’ve got the brooding Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Brontë, the mysterious and sometimes cruel Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights, by Emily Brontë, and Victor Frankenstein from Frankenstein, by Marry Shelley. Lots of characters with high positives and high negatives, am I right? To play leave a comment letting me know who you would marry, who you would date, and who you would dump. Can’t wait to see who you pick!
Here are my choices (they were hard!)
- Marry: Mr. Rochester (he made some stupid mistakes when he was young, but overall seems like a good guy who got tricked into a bad situation)
- Date: Victor Frankenstein (show him the beauties of nature and don’t let him get to distracted by science … it doesn’t lead to good things)
- Dump: Heathcliff (he never did it for me. I always felt like Catherine made a good call marrying Linton, but maybe that’s just me?)
