Jane Eyre/Feminist Theory - Day 2

I am watching Jane Eyre on film right now, before I launch back into the book. I watched the 1996 version with Ciaran Hinds and Samantha Morton and even tried to watch the 1943 version with Orson Welles and Joan Fontaine.  This is just not my thing, but hey ho - time to write the essay.  Jane and her Shadow Self and the price of patriarchy etc.

Below is another Shadow Self - taken outside the Fal Building.


Alas, the shadow makes me look like I have an enormous butt cheek - courtesy of the bag I was wearing :-)

I find this task exhausting, because I have to keep seeing this as deliberate suppression of the female spirit and I don't always see Jane Eyre as that.

I have written 700 words today - not a lot, but then I have been watching films, taking notes and planning as well as writing researching and quoting.  Have dealt with Mrs Reed and Son, currently dealing with Mr Brocklehurst and the starved sisterhood of Lowood Institution.  The Joy :-/
