I've read this a few times but don't have anything helpful to say, mainly because I have read Jane Eyre decades ago and don't remember it as well as I would like.

I also get distracted by the mention of the RED ROOM, and keep thinking of 'The Shining' and the Red Room or 'RED RUM' as the child writes - which backwards spells MURDER

You can call me TC

I read this novel recently. I didn't read it at school and am not sure if I had read it earlier, although I probably did. After reading your entry I feel I should go back and read it again as I had forgotten some of the points you bring up. The section of the book that sticks most in my mind was the part where she runs away and is robbed and has to spend a couple of days as a vagabond until she finds the cottage where her cousins are. This last bit seemed a bit far-fetched to me.

However, the entry is ideal for whetting the appetite and reminds us that it is not a difficult read and worth going back to again and again.

I can't think of anything more that needs tweaking. Are you sure you have included all the film adaptations? I would have thought there were more.

Thanks TC smiley - biggrin

Yes, that was an impressive coincidence that she was destitute and happened to find help in her own relatives' house smiley - laugh I added a little more about that to the Entry smiley - ok

I have tweaked the stage and screen section to indicate it is not an exhaustive list - there have been more indeed.

Glad the Entry whetted your appetite for reading the book smiley - biggrin

Great summary, nice to have background and context for this classic tale. smiley - smiley

I'm not much of a 'Jane Eyre' fan, alas. I really upset my mom once when I was a teenager. I was reading the book aloud to my sister so that she could rest her eyes (which got tired from too much reading), and my mom happened by. I was, er, making my sister laugh by reading ironically...my mom really liked 'Jane Eyre.'

I'm not trustworthy around romance novels, I'm afraid. smiley - laugh
