Jane Eyre Check in #1
Is there any literary character that is as horrible as Aunt Reed and John Reed? I know Mrs Norris from Mansfield Park is dreadful, but Aunt Reed is right up there with her. There is absolutely no redeeming character with her. She is vain and treats her husband's sister daughter terrible. One must wonder how Jane was treated when Uncle Reed was alive. I find myself getting so angry with those characters and when Jane finally voices her opinion and states quite rightly that she is not deceitful, you just want to stand up and cheer!
Jane finally finds some comfort in Bessie, but alas, it is short lived.
Where is everyone else in their read of Jane Eyre? What are your thoughts so far? What do you think of the way that Jane is treated early on. And what is it about that red room!
