Jane Eyre: Charlotte Bronte

Jane Eyre - Michael Mason, Charlotte Brontë

 

 

Let us picture the year 1847.  Now let's picture a not quite pretty, not rich, highly opinionated and devout women who values freedom and independence, who also carries a stout refusal to settle for anything other than who she wants as a husband?  And a said future husband loves and respects her because of her brash opinions and willingness to speak her mind? The gall.  

 

I freaking loved it.
