February 9 – March 16

Coastal Senior College - University College at Rockland

This is what a CSC participant said when she finished Jane Eyre the last time I did the Brontës; it seemed absolutely new to her. How will you feel about Jane, Rochester, Cathy and Heathcliff now that you are a mature adult? Read Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights again and discover two not very romantic but well-crafted Victorian cautionary tales using Gothic conventions. Sex, madness, the moors and a couple of “ghosts”; just what you need to keep warm on a winter night. Please read the first ten chapters of Jane Eyre for the first class.
