ENGL 4421 Charlotte Bronte and the 20th Cent Novel (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

In this course, we'll be exploring the enduring life of Charlotte Bronte's novel Jane Eyre in a variety of twentieth-century and contemporary critical contexts. We'll be discussing both the background to the initial novel, and the many "rewrites" it has inspired, from novelists as diverse as Miles Franklin, Jean Rhys, Daphne du Maurier, and Jeannette Winterson, and from filmmakers like Jacques Tourneur and Alfred Hitchcock.
