    Yes, I suppose you can view this book mostly as a love story That s what I did at age 13 but that s why I was left disappointed back then.Or you can view this as an story of formation of a strong and independent female protagonist, a nineteenth century feminist, light years ahead of its time And that s what left my now closer to thirty than twenty self very satisfied and, quite fra...

    FIVE REASONS WHY JANE EYRE WOULD NEVER BE A BESTSELLER IN OUR TIMES 5 Four hundred odd pages of purely descriptive writing4 Overt religious themes and moral preaching3 A plain Jane heroine who stays plain No makeovers to reveal a hitherto hidden prettiness that only needed an application of hydrogen peroxide and some eyebrow plucking to emerge full blown.2 The world is not well lost for love In the war between self respect and grand passion, principles win hands down Rousing, yet tender speeches do not make our heroine forsake her creed to fall swooning and submissive into her alpha s arms 1 NO SEX When I was a little girl, I had a doll named Saloni Now Saloni wasn t a particularly attractive specimen as dolls go, especially since, over the years, I had drilled a hole in her little rosebud mouth in order to feed her, I had brushed her hair till all the poor synthetic threads had fallen out and I had dragged her around with me so much, one of her big blue eyes had fallen off But in my eyes, Saloni was the best doll ever created She was my comfort, my mainstay in a world filled with conf...

    Reader, I gave it five stars Please let me tell you why Jane Eyre is the quintessential Victorian novel It literally has everything that was typical of the period, but, unlike other novels, it has all the elements in one story At the centre is the romance between Jane and Rochester, which is enhanced by gothic elements such as the uncanniness of the doppleganger and the spectre like qualities of Bertha In addition, it is also a governess novel these were an incredibly popular type of storytelling in the age and for it to be combined with gothic elements, which are interposed with a dualistic relationship between realism and romance, is really quite unique The correct term for this is a hybrid, in which no genre voice is dominant they exist alongside each other creating one rather special book And this is so, so, special it s an excellent piece of literature Jane s journey is gut wrenching and emotional Through her life she experiences real sorrow, the kind that would make a lesser person give up She also experiences real friendship, the type that comes across perhaps once in a lifetime But, most significantly, she experiences true love and the development of independence to form he own ending I really do love this book Bronte utilises the first person narrative, which creates a high degree of intimacy with her character it makes me feel like I know Jane as well as she comes to know h...

    Though you have a man s vigorous brain, you have a woman s heart and it would not do It would do, I affirmed with some disdain, perfectly well. Oh Jane, you wondrously bold and beautiful gal After she was orphaned, Jane Eyre was sent to live with her maternal uncle and his wife Mrs Reed When her uncle dies, he forces his wife to swear to love, nurture and care for Jane as if she was their own child Unsurprisingly, Mrs Reed is not pleased in the least with this arrangement and does the absolute bare minimum towards Jane She spoils her three biological children but sees Jane as a wicked, conniving and devilish child despite ample evidence against I know that had I been a sanguine, brilliant, careless, exacting, handsome, romping child though equally dependent and friendless Mrs Reed would have endured my presence complacently her children would have entertained for me of the cordiality of fellow feeling Jane is sent off to boarding school where life is harsher than before...

    Jane, be still don t struggle so like a wild, frantic bird, that is rending its own plumage in its desperation I am no bird and no net ensnares me I am a free human being, with an independent will which I now exert to leave you I am glad that in 1847 Charlotte Bronte made the decision to publish her novel under a male pseudonym Currer Bell had a much better chance of being published than Charlotte Bronte and, with reviewers and readers assuming that she was in fact a male writer, allowed the novel a chance to be weighed properly without prejudice Jane Eyre became a bestseller The question is, of course, would the novel have been so successful or even published at all if CHARLOTTE BRONTE had been emblazoned on the cover I like to think that some editor would have realized the bloody brilliance of the story and would have published it anyway, even if they didn t spend any money on promoting it Would readers have bought it Hopefully, word would have trickled out about how compelling the plot was, and people would have overcome their natural prejudice for reading a novel by a woman So isn t it fun that Charlotte tricked everyone, including her...

    I am a very pretentious person.I try to seem hip and cool and relatable and down with the teens and of course I totally am all of those things but also I have my tendencies toward pretension It s who I am Just last night I shuddered at the idea of popular music, like some kind of eight hundred year old gremlin.I am not proud of this side of me, but it s who I am And also it is important background information for you, dear Reader, going into this review That direct address to you as an audience member was me emulating this book, not an example of my pretension Or was it Anyway It s important that you know my capacity to be pretentious so that I can make this statement I don t get how any reader can say they don t like classics.Oof A doozy, right Aren t you glad I warned you Now you know that that wasn t just a one off of self serious condescension but rather a pattern of my personality and oh sh t actually my explanation probably made the whole thing a million times worse Now I ve painted my insufferability as consistent.Come back, everyone Let me explain What I need to explain is that this book is excellent, and also a classic It is very very old but sometimes old stuff is still worth it I should know I have the mannerisms of the type of grumpy old man that gets endearingly profiled in Scandinavian bestse...

    For years I ve been saying that Jane Eyre is my favorite novel of all time and that it is The character of Jane is, to me, one of the most admirable and appealing fictional characters of all time Poor and plain she may be, but her spirit...

    Child neglect, near death, a dash of magical realism, the power of love, the powerlessness of the poor, sexual rivalry, mystery, madness and It is as powerful as ever but is it really a love story, given Rochester s Svengali tendencies, or is it a life story His downfall and her inheritance make them equal, but is it really love on his part I m not sure, which is what makes it such a good book just not necessarily a love story I also like the tension between it being very Victorian in some obvious ways, and yet controversially modern in others an immoral hero, a fiercely independent and assertive heroine, and some very unpleasant Christians it s not that I think Christians are bad or like seeing them portrayed in a nasty way it s Bronte s courage in writing such characters I admire CHILDHOODAbout the first quarter of the book concerns the tremendous hardship and abuse that Jane suffers growing up It s often heavily cut from film, TV and stage adaptations, but despite the fluff about this being a great love story, I think there is merit in paying attention to her formative years as an essential element of explaining what makes Jane the person she becomes.The Red Room, where young Jane is banished shortly before being sent to Lowood, is a very short episode in the book, but its significance is probably greater than its brevity implies The trauma of the Red Room is not just be...
