A few years ago, Robynn Colwell was walking home through the beech forest near her house in Brussels, when she stopped to enjoy the autumn colours. She had been puzzling over the role of Charlotte Bartlett, in E.M. Forster's novel A Room with a View. The sight of the trees caught her attention; in a few moments, she resolved the conundrum that had been bothering her.
Robynn told of what she had learned in a presentation
to the Brussels Brontë Group last week. Her talk, Seeing the Wood for the Trees, was beautifully written and
delivered, making for a memorable evening.
