Review Text

  • By Suncoast on August 8, 2015

    I am catching up with classic literature in my more mature years, having not been exposed to many of the classics in my early life. This novel, published 170 years ago, transfixed me with its prose, emotions and structure that revolutionised the art of fiction as we know it today.As with most people nowadays I had been exposed to the story through movies and mini-series but didn't realise how much I was missing by not reading the author's actual words. Jane Eyre is written in the first person as a young Victorian woman who suffered in her childhood but eventually gained a fine education, found good employment and surprisingly someone to love her (the famous Mr Rochester), only to have her happiness taken away at the altar. She runs away, finds herself and her family again but cannot totally break her feelings for Rochester.Charlotte Bronte weaves a novel of strength and length that lays bare the soul of Victorian England through the eyes of Jane Eyre. There is vivid description of the ways of life of the poor and the rich, the morality of the time, including their approach to the role of women, religion, wealth and class. Bronte gradually unfolds the story of Jane's life, struggles and emotions in an intense and spellbinding way and brilliantly uses coincidence and spiritual connections to tell her story.To me Jane Eyre is one of the most honest and good characters in fiction. I read/listened to the book as an audiobook and the skills of the narrator, Emma Messenger, brought the book to life in an emotional and compelling way. 5 plus stars.

    Quite obviously, Emily Bronte's book is an all time classic, and a requirement for any serious reader of English literature. While there is no sexual content, the book is nevertheless highly sexually charged as the large cast of characters wrestle with one another in a series of squelched attempts to define boundaries, violate boundaries, adapt to boundaries, and understand boundaries. In and of itself, this book is a stand alone classic; if the reader takes the time to learn about the highly restrictive life that Ms. Bronte and her sisters were confined to, the work becomes even more remarkable. Written in secret and published under a pseudonym, this classic seethes with repressed passion, sexuality,;love, jealousy, and hatred. Emily Bronte lived on the edge of a windswept moor, and the reader can virtually hear the wind wuthering in between every page as she brings this story to life.

    Wuthering Heights is a Romantic novel with the capital “R”. The Age of Reason is over, and Emily Bronte seeks, and succeeds, in exposing our most irrational natures. In this novel, characters just speak about their great passions, and get sick, and die.Heathcliff and Catherine are the prime exemplars of this; Catherine’s love for Heathcliff is strong, but inchoate. She dies. Heathcliff is constitutionally stronger than Catherine, but after years of tormenting, both emotionally and physically, those around him, he suffers death by Romance as well.I write this tongue-in-cheek. Wuthering Heights is a novel that should be read. Certainly it makes demands on its readers. But we should rise to meet its high mark.

    Of course, most readers know the story of Catherine and Heathcliff. I had read the novel many years ago and remembered the story dragging on and on. After watching a biography of the Bronte Sisters, I decided to buy this book and give it another try. Actually I read it in two days. I could not put it down. The dialog between some of the characters is completely translated and the notes in the margins really add to the narrative. This edition is a beautiful addition to my library and I will read it again (on a dark and stormy night).

    I have just started this book. It is very slow going at first but starts to get much more interesting fairly soon---about the 3rd. chapter. So far the mood is rather dark but part of that is the location and characters and weather in the beginning. It is not dark like being evil, but just the mood---dark and suspenseful. The dialogue of Joseph is, for me and others I've talked to, impossible to decipher the way it is written. I have heard that there is a version where his dialogue is made more readable. Joseph is a pretty disagreeable character who does not have a lot to say so I just imagine what he probably would have said in each instance. Enjoy!

    This old classic is a classic for a reason. IF I read it in high school I don't remember it. So I enjoyed a delightful read over several days, savouring the descriptions, enjoying the character development as well as the plot. At first I thought it was a children's book, but after reading it, I think the children of today would have a hard time understanding many of the beautiful uses of the English language that Charlotte Bronte perfected.
