Jane Eyre is a classic of English literature. You knew that. Did you also know it's a page turner? We'll look at film adaptations of the novel. We'll look at how the novel's gothic elements create suspense. And, since it's a romance, we'll explore how the work has impacted a host of spin-offs - where the poor girl gets the unobtainable guy. The book has it all: a hard-headed lead character, a haunted attic, mystery, fire, thunderstorms, and a happy ending.
