The novel Jane Eyre written by English writer Charlotte Brontë under her pen name in 1847, has been constantly fascinating the viewers in many of its film, TV and theatre adaptations. It is definitely not accidental that the strong story of a fatal love of two people, who could not have been accepted as a couple in their time, became a bestseller to countless number of generations. We are still thrilled how the amiable, naturally humble, but at the same time strong Jane overcomes those rigid limitations of the Victorian conventions. In the harmony of her outer and inner beauty she presents a positive counterpart not only against the repressive greyness of the regimented society, which has been trying to deform her, but also against those darksome secrets and the spontaneity of Rochester, the man she truly loves in spite of seemingly invincible obstacles. The topic of consciously and resolutely chosen sacrifice, as the only way leading to a purge and to meet the goal is surprisingly inspiring also today, or right just today.
