Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre


Course Code: HJAN-Sp Categories: , Tags: , ,


Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is one of the most beloved, well-written and psychologically meaningful 19th century novels. In this online course, we will explore the story, characters and symbolism, while also viewing and discussing clips of key scenes from four Jane Eyre films. Special attention will be paid to Jane as a self-made young woman seeking autonomy within relationship, and to “the madwoman in the attic”, symbolic of Jane’s repressed anger. Students should read the first eight chapters by the first session. Any edition of Jane Eyre is acceptable but the Norton Critical Edition is recommended.
