Jane Eyre

Perfect Jane
and Mr. Rochester.
A bit of fun with Judi
Dench and there was
the actress who played
Anne Elliot from Persuasion
and Margaret from
Larkrise to Candleford.
Focus Films + BBC.

Plus a bonus upon leaving the
theater: the manager gave the
young ladies ( my daughter and
students ) a copy of the book or
the soundtrack. We got the CD.

What is Jane made of?

“Because,” he said, “I sometimes have a queer feeling with regard to you, especially when you are near me, as now; it is as if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly and inextricably knotted to a similar string situated in the corresponding quarter of your little frame. And if that boisterous channel, and two hundred miles or so of land, come broad between us, I am afraid that cord of communion will be snapped; and then I’ve a nervous notion I should take to bleeding inwardly. As for you, you’d forget me.”

- Chapter 23

this is what my old book looks like:

Now, I'm looking forward to seeing it after reading a review for someone who knows art when she sees it! :-)
