Jane, rimasta orfana da piccolissima, trascorre la fanciullezza in un triste asilo di Lowood, dopo essere stata rifiutata da alcuni parenti che l'hanno tenuta in custodia. In questo luogo, dove vigono regole molto rigide, la ragazza si fa conoscere per quello che è davvero, diventando in seguito una stimata insegnante. Trova così lavoro a Thornfield Hall, proprietà della famiglia Rochester; l'incontro con il padrone di casa, il cupo Edward, cambierà per sempre la sua vita. Una storia d'amore sofferta e tormentata, che porterà la protagonista a scoprire tristi verità, ma che allo stesso tempo la farà maturare e cambiare nel profondo.

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 then¹. 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. An Leggi tutto
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 en

FIVE REASONS WHY JANE EYRE WOULD NEVER BE A BESTSELLER IN OUR TIMES: 5. Four hundred-odd pages of purely descriptive writing 4. Overt religious themes and moral preaching 3.

I could bang Mr. Rochester like a screen door 'till next Tuesday. That's not all I got from this book, honestly...
I feel like an ass saying this but... who actually thinks this is a cute romance!? What the actual f!! Now that this is out of the way. I did like Jane as a character and I also liked the portion of the book about her childhood but the two RoMaNcEs were train wrecks and if I hear anyone say they love Leggi tutto
“‘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 Leggi tutto
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 Leggi tutto
Child neglect, near death, a dash of magical realism, the power of love, the powerlessness of the poor, sexual rivalry, mystery, madness and more.

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 bra Leggi tutto
