A humble but intelligent and courageous woman
on January 27, 2015
As I said in my review of Wuthering Heights by the other Bronte sister, Emily, this is a classic of 19th CT. English literature, and a masterpiece of Romantic fiction, already lengthily reviewed by scholars. I liked it even more than the other one for the greater complexity of the protagonist, Jane Eyre. She is a fascinating woman, who behind her humility hides a very intelligent, sensitive, deep personality, very determined and courageous. I enjoyed the witty, intelligent dialogue between Jane and Rochester, another captivating character, who is hiding behind the mask of a rough, demanding, curt and spiteful man a very sensitive and passionate soul. The plot is rich, full of suspense and masterfully written in very beautiful English.
