As Lou Grant said to Mary Tyler Moore “You’ve got spunk”. Jane Eyre definitely has spunk. I related more to her than I have to any other classic heroine. She sticks to her principles & speaks up when she doesn’t like something, but she’s still feminine.
Jane makes the perfect modern day character, but it’s astounding that Charlotte Bronte wrote this in 1848. I can only imagine what the more conservative people of the day thought of Jane Eyre, but I’m a huge fan. Once again, thanks to Rory’s Book Club for the fantastic introduction. Of course I knew there was a book called Jane Eyre, but I never read it because it was sitting on the bookshelf, leather bound, next to all of the other “boring” books.
