Jane Eyre [electronic resource]

Journalist and novelist Bidisha was fascinated by Bronte's Jane Eyre as a teenager, but re-reading the story as an adult left her feeling uncomfortable. What Bronte had to say about sex and race was darker and more disturbing than she remembered. Revisiting this classic Victorian novel, Bidisha sees her role model, and the society which spawned her, through very different eyes. Is Jane Eyre really the spirited, independent woman Bidisha admired as a young reader? Is Mr. Rochester little more than a bully and abuser? What does the characterisation of Bertha tell us about Bronte's colonial attitudes? To better understand, Bidisha travels to the Bronte's family home in Yorkshire and visits the British Library to examine Bronte's original manuscript and uncover intimate letters written b [...]

The Brilliant Brontë Sisters [electronic resource]

Writer and actress Sheila Hancock has long been fascinated by the life and works of the Brontë sisters. In this programme, she searches for an answer to a puzzling question: "How did three spinsters who spent most of their lives in a remote parsonage on the edge of the moors come to write books so shocking, erotic, profoundly moving and quite wonderful?" Hancock embarks on a journey that starts in the Yorkshire village of Haworth and the brutal moors that inspired Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights. She moves on to Brussels, where Charlotte Brontë developed the writing style that made Jane Eyre an enduring masterpiece and examines the nature of Charlotte and Constantin Heger's seemingly romantic relationship. She ends in Scarborough, the last resting place of Anne Brontë whose Tenant o [...]

The Brontë Sisters [electronic resource]: A Concise Biography

This program from the Famous Authors series introduces the rich imaginative life of Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë, exposed to the world of literature by their father Patrick Brontë priest, examiner, and writer. The family struggled with poverty, and the family home Haworth and moorland provided inspiration for the daughters. Charlotte and Emily were educated at Cowan Bridge School, later the inspiration for Charlotte's Jane Eyre, until their father could no longer ignore the mistreatment they suffered there. Afterward, the Brontë daughters pursued education at home, where they had access to literature, contemporary art, newspapers, and magazines. When their father got sick, the sisters tried to earn a living, but all the girls struggled with the stifling loss of freedom of being [...]

Charlotte Bronte [electronic resource]: Jane Eyre

Through the character Jane, orphan and governess, Charlotte Bronte introduced a style of heroine that markedly departed from the previous norm in Victorian literature. In this program, Dr. Tom Winnifrith-Bronte expert and author of The Brontes-and Dr. Sally Poulson of the University of Warwick discuss a variety of topics, including whether Jane Eyre is feminist literature, the theme of the Gothic novel, the Victorian education system, and 19th-century social structure. In addition, they compare and contrast the author with her shy and intense heroine to determine how much of the novel is autobiographical.
