Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre by Elsie B. Michie

Book Description

Jane Eyre is one of the most well-loved and widely read works in the canon, popular at both the high school and university levels. The casebook provides a series of essays that are lucidly and passionately written, and carefully researched and argued while still being accessible to the general reading public. The anthology is structured in three sections. The first provides three overall interpretations of the novel that are excellent examples of the most common approach to Jane Eyre: a reading that explores the psychological development of the novel's eponymous heroine. The second section will introduce more novel approaches: a feminist reading of the novel, a depiction of the psyche in Jane Eyre, a depiction of Jane in light of mid-Victorian discussions of Evangelicism, an analysis of Jane in relation to contemporary debates about the governess, and an examination of the novel in relation to colonialist discourse. The last section of the anthology includes essays that provide accounts of the familial context out of which Jane Eyre arose, its critical reception, and its literary afterlife.

Vulgar Question of Money by Elsie B. Michie Vulgar Question of Money, Paperback (February 2013)

Victorian Vulgarity by Elsie B. Michie Victorian Vulgarity, Hardback (August 2009)

Outside the Pale by Elsie B. Michie Outside the Pale, Paperback (November 1993)
