"If any of you decide to embark on a career as a governess and you end up, like, working for a mysterious stranger in an isolated house, tutoring his sexually precocious illegitimate daughter, and this mysterious employer proposes marriage, take a walk up to the attic. Because it is quite likely that you are going to find an insane, syphilitic, arsonist spouse locked up there, and that’s gonna be bad for your relationship."

Reader, it’s Jane Eyre - Crash Course Literature 207

In which John Green teaches you about Charlotte Brontë’s classic coming of age novel, Jane Eyre. Look, we don’t like to make judgement values here, but Jane Eyre is awesome. By which we mean the book is great, and the character is amazing. When Jane Eyre was published in 1847, it was a huge hit. It really hit the controversial balance beautifully, being edgy enough to make news, but still mainstream enough to be widely popular. It was sort of like the Fight Club of it’s day, but not quite as testosterone-fueled. You’ll learn a little about the story, learn about Jane as a feminist heroine, and even get some critical analysis on how Bertha might just be a dark mirror that acts out Jane’s emotional reactions.
