|Jane Eyre Paperback Cover by Vintage Classics|
Now, first of all I have to remind my readers that I am not an English major, nor do I profess to be an expert in English lit. I do however have a passion for 19th century English literature. I also have a passion for seeing said novels well adapted for the screen. And by well adapted, I suppose I mean that I love it when the film transports me to the 19th century and makes me feel what the characters are feeling.
|Can you feel the love between Jane and Mr. Rochester?|
|Jane and the hateful Mr. Brocklehurst|
|Thornfield Hall aka Haddon Hall|
|Enough of love will follow????!!!!!|
Rock on Jane!!!!!
Do you see where I am going here? I have to come back to the book to find the words that match up with those amazing images from the film. For me, I cannot have just the book. I cannot have just the film. I need both to be happy and satisfied.
|This is what it is to be loved for one's self-|
imperfections and all!
Reader, she married him. And if you would like to read just the juicy bits, I have posted the 3 best chapters as pages on my blog.
First, we have the famous Chapter 27. This is where Jane has found out Mr. Rochester's secret and he is endeavouring to tell her how much she means to him and how he plans to keep her with him always. Sigh...
And then we have the lovely last two chapters. Chapter 37 & 38 describe her return to him and what happened afterward. If you felt a bit ripped off at the ending of Jane Eyre 2011 and found yourself yearning for Toby Stephens and Ruth Wilson from the 2006 miniseries like I did, you may want to read those last two chapters again. Charlotte Bronte will give you what Cary Fukunaga would not. Sigh...
