Charlotte Brontë - Jane EyreNine years ago, Palgrave MacMillan published Wuthering Heights by Patsy Stoneman as part of their A Reader's Guide to Essential Criticism series. Now, it's Jane Eyre's turn. This time Palgrave commissioned the book to a Victorian scholar, Sara Lodge, on the outskirts of Brontë studies. After reading the book, the intentions were clear. A comprehensive, but not overwhelming, summary of the history and evolution of the Jane Eyre literary criticism from, as much as possible, a strictly objective position. Which probably wouldn't have been possible with a literary scholar already linked to some Eyre-related school of thought as the author.
