ABOUT THE BOOK Jane Eyre, first published in London in 1847 under Charlotte Brontes pen name Currer Bell, is a classic three-volume novel that exemplifies the tenets of both Gothic and Romantic fiction. Though popular on both high school and college required reading lists, it has also been a book well-beloved by readers for generations. Female readers make up the novels most ardent devotees, no doubt aided by the presence of a strong female protagonist and the undeniably alluring Byronic hero, Mr. Rochester. A novel indicative of the Victorian era from which it was produced, Jane Eyre holds readers enrapt with a classic Gothic mystery at its core and a heady romance between the two main characters. MEET THE AUTHOR Maureen Lee Lenker recently graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Southern California with a BA in history and cinematic arts, as well as a minor in theatre. She is currently a program assistant at the USC Sidney Harman Academy for Polymathic Study. In the fall, she will continue her education as an MPhil student in history at the University of Oxford. Her concentration will be material culture in Renaissance England. In addition to her academic writing, she has written movie reviews and television recaps for the entertainment blog, The Popsicle. She is a classic film buff, a pop culture junkie, and a history enthusiast, and she is happiest when her life allows her to combine these three interests. She loves USC football (being a former member of the Trojan Marching Band), Disney, Impressionist Art, Broadway musicals, Shakespeare, and Jane Austen. A life-long lover of the theatre, she enjoys attending, acting in, and producing plays. In her free time, she enjoys relaxing with a good book and a cup of tea or watching old movies on TCM. Or if shes feeling more adventurous, playing pub trivia at a bar with friends and a Pimms Cup in hand. Shes a die-hard Trojan, a hapless fan-girl, and a cockeyed optimist. Follow her on twitter at @maureenlee89 EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Bertha, the infamous madwoman in the attic, stands in stark contrast to Janes control. She is the embodiment of unchecked passion, and Rochester even describes her promiscuous behavior and delight in vices as symptoms of her lunacy. Her scraggly hair and loose nightgown are physical manifestations of Berthas lack of containment. Bertha's own inability to control and master her passions forces Rochester to physically confine and contain her within Thornfield. When she escapes her prison, her passionate nature pushes her to commit heinous acts of violence. Jane Eyre has long held a hallowed place in pop culture and public consciousness. In addition to the Wide Sargasso Sea, the novel has inspired countless spin-offs and sequels, such as Jasper Ffordes The Eyre Affair. In addition, it has been retold in over 10 film and mini-series adaptations and even a stage musical. The most recent film adaptation debuted in March 2011, and it starred Mia Wasikowska as Jane and Michael Fassbender as Mr. Rochester.

Steaming, funky, and thoroughly modern, Austin, Texas, isn't much like the gardened country estates of Jane Austen's work. But there might be a few similarities in its inhabitants. . . Cate Kendall is no stranger to daydreams of brooding men and fancy parties--after all, she teaches one of her beloved Jane Austen novels in her English classes every year. But as for romance or adventure in her own life, the highlight of most weeks is Scrabble with her cute coworker, Ethan, and he draws the line at witty banter. But Cate is ready for a change. When she finds a mysterious journal that seems to have a link to the soul of the great Jane Austen herself, she knows it's her chance. And she grabs on with both hands. . . Before she knows it, Cate has invented an alter ego with an attitude, attended some seriously chic soirees, and gotten tangled up with a delicious mystery man. And she's uncovered enough unexpected secrets about Ethan that her Scrabble partner has taken to brooding looks and unfathomable silences. It's a positively Austenite predicament, and Cate is sure she'll land in hot water and heartbreak--but maybe not with Jane herself to guide her. . . "Sexy, saucy, fun! Jane Austen would be proud!" --Sophie Jordan, New York Times bestselling author Praise for Austentatious "Frothy, fun, and full of juicy secrets, Alyssa Goodnight's Austen-inspired romp is no Plain Jane." --Erin Blakemore "Will appeal to all Austen fans while bringing a fresh twist with its magic journal." --Booklist "Kept me turning the pages way past my bedtime." --Cindy Jones, author of My Jane Austen Summer

Representations of the Gypsy in the Romantic Period

Author: Sarah Houghton-Walker
Publisher: OUP Oxford
ISBN: 9780191030161
Release Date: 2014-10-16
Genre: Literary Criticism

In early eighteenth-century texts, the gypsy is frequently figured as an amusing rogue; by the Victorian period, it has begun to take on a nostalgic, romanticized form, abandoning sublimity in favour of the bucolic fantasy propagated by George Borrow and the founding members of the Gypsy Lore Society. Representations of the Gypsy in the Romantic Period argues that, in the gap between these two situations, the figure of the gypsy is exploited by Romantic-period writers and artists, often in unexpected ways. Drawing attention to prominent writers (including Wordsworth, Austen, Clare, Cowper and Brontë) as well as those less well-known, Sarah Houghton-Walker examines representations of gypsies in literature and art from 1780-1830, alongside the contemporary socio-historical events and cultural processes which put pressure on those representations. She argues that, raising troubling questions by its repeated escape from the categories of enlightenment discourses which might seek to 'know' or 'understand' in empirical ways, the gypsy exists both within and outside of conventional English society. The figure of the gypsy is thus available to writers and artists to facilitate the articulation of dilemmas and anxieties taking various forms, and especially as a lens through which questions of knowledge and identity (which is often mutable, and troubling) might be focussed. .

Gypsies and the British Imagination 1807 1930

Author: Deborah Epstein Nord
Publisher: Columbia University Press
ISBN: 9780231510332
Release Date: 2008-11-28
Genre: Literary Criticism

Gypsies and the British Imagination, 1807-1930, is the first book to explore fully the British obsession with Gypsies throughout the nineteenth century and into the twentieth. Deborah Epstein Nord traces various representations of Gypsies in the works of such well-known British authors John Clare, Walter Scott, William Wordsworth, George Eliot, Arthur Conan Doyle, and D. H. Lawrence. Nord also exhumes lesser-known literary, ethnographic, and historical texts, exploring the fascinating histories of nomadic writer George Borrow, the Gypsy Lore Society, Dora Yates, and other rarely examined figures and institutions. Gypsies were both idealized and reviled by Victorian and early-twentieth-century Britons. Associated with primitive desires, lawlessness, cunning, and sexual excess, Gypsies were also objects of antiquarian, literary, and anthropological interest. As Nord demonstrates, British writers and artists drew on Gypsy characters and plots to redefine and reconstruct cultural and racial difference, national and personal identity, and the individual's relationship to social and sexual orthodoxies. Gypsies were long associated with pastoral conventions and, in the nineteenth century, came to stand in for the ancient British past. Using myths of switched babies, Gypsy kidnappings, and the Gypsies' murky origins, authors projected onto Gypsies their own desires to escape convention and their anxieties about the ambiguities of identity. The literary representations that Nord examines have their roots in the interplay between the notion of Gypsies as a separate, often despised race and the psychic or aesthetic desire to dissolve the boundary between English and Gypsy worlds. By the beginning of the twentieth century, she argues, romantic identification with Gypsies had hardened into caricature-a phenomenon reflected in D. H. Lawrence's The Virgin and the Gipsy-and thoroughly obscured the reality of Gypsy life and history.
