When I was in elementary school, I read Jane Eyre over, and over, and over again. She was the first heroine who really charmed me.
Mr. Rochester didn’t steal my heart the way Darcy did. I was always sympathetic to his poor insane wife, a woman who lived in a prison of the way society rejected mental illness and medical care did not understand or have any solutions for her condition.
Charlotte Bronte’s sister, Emily, received more movie attention with her dashing Heathcliff (Laurence Olivier) and Cathy in Wuthering Heights. That black and white film version became a classic, but any film attempt I’ve seen so far of Jane Eyre could never capture what the book meant to me.
I’m hoping a new generation will read Jane Eyre and find the girl and woman who was created by Charlotte Bronte.
If this image looks familiar, it is like one I used for Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett.
