Exploring the Book's
You could write a thesis about some aspect of
Jane Eyre. Countless graduate students have.
You could make a fascinating movie based on the
Jane Eyre story. Many writers and directors have tried, with varying degrees of success (see my
Jane Eyre movie reviews).
You could spend a lifetime wandering through the
pages of Jane Eyre and finding new pleasures there. Thanks, don't mind if I do.
I'm not a graduate student, or a movie director, or
even a literary critic ... just a fan of Charlotte Brontë's indescribably rich book. In this section of my website,
I'll be offering my thoughts — with luck, some may deserve to be called "insights" — about my favorite piece of
literature. Use the links below to explore what I have to say on various facets of the book. Thanks for stopping
