Songs and stories from Jane Eyre: a queer adaptation of the classic novel.
This is not for persons who hold solemn doctrines about the angelic nature of literature or theater: but we are not here to flatter egotism, or prop up humbug; we are merely telling the story. We value what is good in books; but we believe in the existence of other, and more vivid kinds of goodness.
It is narrow-minded to say that we ought to confine ourselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags.
—Charlotte Brontë, 1847 (edited)
