ç Read ñ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë ä 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 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 againstI know that had I been a sanguine, brilliant, careless, exacting, handsome, romping child though equally dependent and friendless Mrs Reed would have endured my presencecomplacently



I could bang Mr Rochester like a screen door till next Tuesday That s not all I got from this book, honestly 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 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 condesc 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 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 is indomitable.
In an era when women were expected to be brainless and ornamental, Jane through the words of Charlotte Bronte refused to bow to those expectations Child neglect, near death, a dash of magical realism, the power of love, the powerlessness of the poor, sexual rivalry, mystery, madness andIt 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 themequal, 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 Orphaned As A Child, Jane Has Felt An Outcast Her Whole Young Life Her Courage Is Tested Once Again When She Arrives At Thornfield Hall, Where She Has Been Hired By The Brooding, Proud Edward Rochester To Care For His Ward Ad Le Jane Finds Herself Drawn To His Troubled Yet Kind Spirit She Falls In Love Hard But There Is A Terrifying Secret Inside The Gloomy, Forbidding Thornfield Hall Is Rochester Hiding From Jane Will Jane Be Left Heartbroken And Exiled Once Again I read this book back in High School I hated it I thought it was boring and stupid and all I wanted to do was spread the word that this book was terrible and no one should read it I had it marked one star on Goodreads and it had a home on my least favorite shelf.
Well, I have been waiting years to find the perfect place to use this gif I reread in late August, early September 2017 I have to say that I should probably reread everything I read bank in High School to get a better perspective I enjoyed the book quite a bit this time The story in intricate and dark Jane Eyre is a tragic hero who does her best through the whole book but keeps encountering unfortunate situation after unfortunate situation The story held my interest a lotthan some other classic novels I have read My only complaint was a few times certain plot points were belabored I found myself saying, O
