Charlotte Bronte Revelations : The Final Journey of Jane Eyre - D.M. Thomas Horror Book Review
Horror books Review
“Reader, I married him.”
A manuscript is discovered purporting to be the work of Charlotte Bronte. The manuscript, both remarkable and surprising, offers a darker, alternative ending to the story of Jane and Mr. Rochester in the classic Jane Eyre.
“Reader, this is a very different picture of my marriage from that which you were presented with in what I would call my “romantic” version. Reality, however, does not often conicide with romance. I will remind you: “When his first born was put into his arms, he could see that the boy had inherited his own eyes as they once were—large, brilliant, and black” Well, events did not quite happen like that.”
Freed from the constraints of Victorian modesty and subservience, D.M. Thomas’ modern “Jane Eyre” is sexually and politically enlightened, but also troubled and sometimes cruel. Jane’s damaged personality resonates at the center of this haunting book.
D.M. Thomas uses the basic elements of Jane Eyre to tease the tangle of Victorian melodrama into a new form. By transporting the action to modern day Martinique, he examines changing patterns of slavery and colonialism. Pursuing the unforgettable characters ofJane and Rochester through time, D.M. Thomas brings them into focus for the modern reader as their sexual and moral actions are starkly and unflinchingly exposed in this deeply entertaining work of imaginative brilliance.
