Jane Eyre and the Eyre Affair

Again, I'm late. Jet lag? On an eighteen-month-old? You have pity on me? Tuesday I promise there'll be a real post.

Saturday, I saw the new Jane Eyre film (in English no less!). I was struck anew with respect for her character, so fragile, so resilient, so demure, feminine in its highest sense of strength, intelligence and obstenance! While I still chuckle at the unforseen happy ending (what writer wouldn't have caved in and given her back Mr. Rochester?) it made me think of "the story within a story" as told by Jasper Fforde in THE EYRE AFFAIR. I know how the story was going to you?
