The Jane and Bertha in MeAlmost eight years ago (so many already?) Rita Maria Martinez published a first compilation of poems inspired or heavily influenced by the reading of Jane Eyre: Jane-in-the-Box (2008). Now, the author has expanded that work into a full book of poems, The Jane and Bertha in Me. This new book includes all the poems of its predecessor (16, not in the same order, though) and includes many more (22). The interested reader is referred to our previous review of Jane-in-the-Box for comments of the poems already included there and we will focus now on the new ones and the book as a whole.
