Jane Eyre
Jane Eyre | Charlotte Brontee
Charlotte Bronte's moving masterpiece - the novel that has been "teaching true strength of character for generations" (The Guardian) A novel of intense power and intrigue, Jane Eyre has dazzled generations of readers with its depiction of a woman's quest for freedom. Having grown up an orphan in the home of her cruel aunt and at a harsh charity school, Jane Eyre becomes an independent and spirited survivor-qualities that serve her well as governess at Thornfield Hall. But when she finds love with her sardonic employer, Rochester, the discovery of his terrible secret forces her to make a choice. Should she stay with him whatever the consequences or follow her convictions, even if it means leaving her beloved? This updated Penguin Classics edition features a new introduction by Bronte scholar and award-winning novelist Stevie Davies, as well as comprehensive notes, a chronology, further reading, and an appendix. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

So eloquently written and it has resemblances of differing books I have read in the past. Superb eloquence of dialogue within certain impoverished scenes, reminds me sometimes of Hugo, or when I am transcended to a more pastoral scene I feel like Hardy‘s hand is penning the page. Or during the scene of quaint but sophisticated and humble enjoyment I am transported to Howard‘s End. The ending had perceived notions of Great Expectations. Remarkable.

“There was no possibility of taking a walk that day.  We had been wandering, indeed, in the leafless shrubbery an hour in the morning; but since dinner (Mrs. Reed, when there was no company, dined early) the cold winter wind had brought with it clouds so sombre, and a rain so penetrating, that further #outdoor exercise was now out of the question.” #QuotsyJun21

Jane Eyre: A Guide to Reading and Reflecting | Charlotte Bront, Karen Swallow Prior

I love reading new intros, so I was excited to see these on #netgalley! Prior does an excellent job introducing students to the texts, highlighting important themes and explaining relevant background info. And there are so many great study questions! The books are from a Christian press, however, and assume readers will be also, so they're not for everyone.

I always wonder if in-depth intros are too spoilery for new readers. Is it just me? 📚🤓

Bookwormjillk Yes! I got spoiled on Mansfield Park because I read the intro. 2y
Ruthiella Way too spoilery . They should be Afterwords instead of Introductions, IMO. (edited) 2y
Linsy @Ruthiella Right??! I only love reading them after I've read the book. I've never understood why you would point out all the major plot points. 2y
Linsy @Bookwormjillk That's happened to me!! I had to start reading the intros after I finished the book the first time. They should really give new readers spoiler warnings; or, as @ruthiella said, make them afterwards! 2y
Bookwormjillk @Linsy yes! They should just be afterwards 👏👏 2y

I actually read this book because of the references in The Eyre Affair. It was really fun to read the original source after finishing that book. The book itself was good, a sweet story, characters that were relatable. I also find it interesting to read novels written in other times. #thatsclassic #janneyre #charlottebronte

This novel was on my TBR for 4 years before I was asked to read it for university this year. I'm ecstatic that we are asked for it this semester because I wouldn't have read it if it wasn't.(I have a slight 🤏🏼 fear of classics although I'm a literature student. I don't know why. Don't ask me)
I loved this story so much that I know I'll re-read it after the exams. Also, I'm thinking about reading Wide Sargasso Sea now since I loved this one.

KathyWheeler I liked Wide Sargasso Sea. 2y

Very good. It is such a heart wrenching and gut wrenching book as it shows how you can be consumed with love and it's effect on you. It may show all these things but it also shows the other side of love and how it can conquer all. Also it explores how you can be resilient through tough times.

I wanted to love it. I expected to love it. The writing is amazing.

But Rochester was so immature that I could not vibe with him at all. I actually loved Jane until she was stupid enough to make the VERY LAST DECISION SHE MAKES. I won't specify to avoid spoilers. I didn't understand how she allowed that. Nothing showed that Rochester actually went through personal growth, just that he was "punished." Apparently.

Such a let down. ?

Lovely writing and young Jane is an interesting character. However, i can feel the 1800s Christian indoctrination coming along to strangle that out of her.

Also, this is the coffee mug that I won during the 24 in 48 readathon years back. It's remained one of my favorites. 🥰

I decided to make a #BookspinBingo board because I like Bingo boards and I had a reread (tagged) and a new spiritual book already started, so why not mix them in with the gang? I don't expect to get many bingos, but it was fun to make. Either way, I'm super excited because the #BookSpin and #DoubleSpin are both parts of series I'm eager to continue! Yay!

@TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! I love putting my list into the board because it's mostly books I'm hoping to read this month anyway. So I may not score a bingo, but it's one more thing for me to check off and feel like I'm getting somewhere 😂 2y

I knew very little about the plot going into this and was expecting a gothic romance similar to Wuthering Heights. Boy, was I surprised. But in a good way. I ended up really enjoying this and loved Jane.

Mehso-so

So.

I always feel a little bit bad when I don't LOVE a classic. (Except Dickens. Sorry, y'all - just don't like him.)

I knew hardly anything going into this. I knew that she was a governess, there was a man named Rochester, and a mystery of someone in the attic (which I guessed correctly early on - well-known trope). I thought that the writing was lovely. I adore rich descriptions, which this had in spades. I just felt like I read (cont 👇🏻)

mom2bugnbee three different books. I didn't understand the purpose of some of the side plot lines. I love books that make every sentence count, and this did not do that. Maybe that's a style thing? I listened to this through the podcast Phoebe Reads a Mystery and loved her voice. It won't stop me from reading more Brontë. I was just underwhelmed. Apologies if this is your favorite. ☺ (I did enjoy the fact that I grew up near the St. John's River 👇🏻 2y
mom2bugnbee which is all I heard when she said that name. 😂 2.5/5, maybe bumped to a 3. 2y
Lauram I was very young when I read this. I‘m afraid that a re-read would ruin the love that I had for this book at 13. 2y

“Mr. Woodhouse focuses his energy inward to take care of his health and comfort”

Jane Eyre is one of the most introspective characters I can think of. It speaks so much to her demeanor.

If it wasn't for my mother who gave me this book, and for a Buddy Read - I might wouldn't have read this one ever. Happily, Reading Fate took another course 😄

I'm so deeply impressed by the character of Jane Eyre. She's so strong and therefore still a roll model for small and big people. Now I will turn to her whenever I feel overwhelmed by life.

SamAnne It's past due time for me to do a reread of this classic. I agree with your review! 2y
