The Victorian era is known for its class rigidity and moral strictness. In her 1847 novel Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë gave us a robust, layered character who pushes against cultural norms and fully embraces her complexity. She’s crabby, difficult, and gets depressed. But she’s also smart and passionate. And she claims the right to love and be loved because she is all these things—fully human. Sharon Marcus is the Orlando Harriman Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University. She is the author of Apartment Stories: City and Home in Nineteenth-Century Paris and London and Between Women: Marriage, Desire, and Friendship in Victorian England.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte audiobook. Jane Eyre is not your typical romance. It is a story of a woman who struggles with a world in which she doesn't quite fit. Once finished with her schooling, and with no family that really cares of her she strikes out on her own as a governess. Jane Eyre searches for love, someone to care for her, and someone to care for, and finds it in unexpected places.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/matthew-jackson95/support
Follow us into the misty moors as we discuss whether or not this really is a love story, how much we’re enjoying the gothic drama, and if Bertha really was crazy. We also talk about what the teenage versions of ourselves might have thought of this book and how much we need to read more from all the Bronte sisters. Episode Drink: From Tequila Mockingbird by Tim Federle Gin Eyre 8 sprigs of fresh mint, washed 2 oz English gin 1 oz lemon juice 1 ½ tsp granulated sugar 2 dashes orange bitters Tear the mint leaves and put into a shaker. Put other ingredients in shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a cocktail glass. “Now nurse that drink like a good nanny” Take a drink: Whenever someone says something mean to Jane Whenever Mr. Rochester is an asshole Whenever you eyeroll at the outdated expectations Whenever the a ghost haunts a house or a room Take two drinks whenever someone proposes marriage to Jane Roll your eyes when men just keep vocalizing their stupid expectations of Jane when it’s none of their fucking business Take a drink when you really give a second, third, and fourth thought to how crazy was Bertha and was she really crazy? Finish your drink when you realize maybe this wasn’t a love story after all.

Gang, we're starting to think St. John doesn't REALLY see Jane as a sister?This chapter, Christmas occurs for two seconds and then Jane enters into an emotionally wrought new language practice with her first cousin cum benefactee, St. John. And things escalate when St. John invites her to join him in a colonialist, racist project. To say the least...Join us as we unpack how Jane Eyre continues to be a book about race, nationalism, and men filling the void of women's confused silence with their enthusiastic consent. Heads up - the text is more self aware of some of these things than others.
085 Jaclyn Desforges on "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte
Best Book Ever Podcast
Jaclyn Desforges is the author of Danger Flower, a poetry collection about nature, sexuality, reverse mermaids and mothering. She’s also the author of Why Are You So Quiet? a picture book about being an introverted kid. Her award-winning poems and stories have been published in literary magazines across Canada. Today, Jaclyn joined me to talk about a book that I have always thought I hated. It turns out, I fundamentally misunderstood “Jane Eyre,” and this was one of those bookish conversations that opened my eyes and made my brain tingle. We also talked Reverse Mermaids, how to understand books differently on a re-reading, and how Jane Eyre is Jaclyn’s own personal Patron Saint of Neurodivergence.

Remember how St. John ripped that piece of Jane's drawing and then acted like nothing happened? Well spread some bird seed, it is time for those chickens to come home to roost!On a stormy, snowy eve St. John visits Jane and reveals all. Is it a deus ex machina? *Shrug*. Is it fun? *vigorously nods*.
