Am about 120 pages from finishing Jane Eyre. I am struggling to put the book down it is just so good!!! Ugh one of my favourite books ever. Through being let into her mind and thoughts (i.e it is in first-person) you form a connection with ‘plain’ Jane (pun intended), the orphan as you follow her through her life during Victorian England. The novel is deep, passionate, beautifully descriptive (although at times rather long-winded), and surprisingly progressive.
Jane’s thoughts, attitudes and behaviours demonstrate that she’s independent, strong, true to herself, honest, intelligent, yet sometimes vulnerable and stubborn as well.
'Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field for their efforts, as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, to absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer; and it is narrow-minded in their more privileged fellow-creatures to say that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags. It is thoughtless to condemn them, or laugh at them, if they seek to do more or learn more than custom has pronounced necessary for their sex.”
