Reviews

'To summarise the enormous body of criticism that Jane Eyre has generated since its publication in 1847 in 200 pages was not an easy task. To do this in an accessible way without falling into oversimplifications was even harder to achieve. The fact that the final result is not only a good reference book but also a highly readable one evinces the success of Sara Lodge's task.' - Bronteblog
 
'The selections show contrasts, trends and developments. They present not only a panorama but also a map of the territory, inviting further excursions.... Long may books as good as this one be part of our future, helping us to evaluate the past.' - Charmian Knight, Bronte Studies
