Summer has almost come to a close, but there’s still time to squeak in a few more books in the sunshine!

A Classic Couple: Jane Eyre and Wide Sargasso Sea

Charlotte Brontë’s 1847 novel Jane Eyre is one of the books that first made me fall in love with classic literature. I remember reading it on a family road trip before my senior year of high school, captivated by Jane's independence and resilience. For years librarians, professors, and bookish friends who know that Jane Eyre is a favorite of… Continue reading A Classic Couple: Jane Eyre and Wide Sargasso Sea

Knowing this affection I have, several of my friends recommended that I watch the movie adaptation- in particular, the one from 2011 starring Mia Wasikowska  and Michael Fassbender. So I did! I haven’t watched very many movie adaptations of classic literature, so at… Continue reading Movie Review: JANE EYRE
