Why did a contemporary reviewer of Charlotte Bronte’s novel, Jane Eyre, describe its heroine as “an unregenerate and undisciplined spirit,” who suffers from “the sin of pride” How can she dare assert that she wants “Liberty, Life, Enjoyment,” and that “women feel just as men do”? And finally, how can she possibly demand—as a woman in 1840's England—a marriage of equality? Answer these questions as we engage in lively and detailed discussion of this revolutionary heroine.
