"How little know we what we are/How less what we may be!" Reflecting on
the nature of potential, Anne Brontë had little chance in this 1841 diary
paper of predicting the Brontës' literary impact. But is there more
potential? This panel seeks papers that find "newness" in traditional
ideas or traditional ideas in new places in both better and lesser known
Brontë writings. How does one reenvision the Brontës' works, their
inspirations or their legacies? What new theoretical interpretations
broaden or restructure our understanding of their literary connections?
