Summary:Romantic melodrama or feminist classic, Jane Eyre is one of the most
enduringly popular and compelling novels in the literary canon.
Overlooked or dismissed by critics in the nineteenth and early
twentieth centuries, it first began to attract serious critical
attention in the 1970s as New Critical, formalist and feminist
critics began to re-evaluate Charlotte Bronte's achievement. This New
Casebook brings together essays by leading scholars over the past
twenty years, mapping Jane Eyre's progress through the literary and
theoretical establishment and encouraging the student to consider
these different critical approaches and how they shape the novel and
our reading of it.
Notes:Cover subtitle: Contemporary critical essays.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 251-255) and index.
