An alert for today, January 28, in Carteret, North Carolina:

Western Carteret Public Library
Let's Talk About This. Mad Women in the Attic Discussion Series

On Jan. 28, guest scholar Billy Yeargin will discuss Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

According to the description provided by the library, “Bertha, the mad woman who is literally locked in the attic in Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel, has been read by critics as Jane’s alter ego, the repressed ‘dark side’ of her personality. Bertha represents the ultimate result of Jane’s suffering and oppression.

Jane Eyre, which is often read simply as a romance novel, may be re-read as a novel about Jane’s struggle to come to terms with the various roles she is expected to or allowed to fulfill: orphan, governess, servant, teacher, and wife.”
