The Secret History of Jane Eyre
In this close reading of both Jane Eyre and her creator Charlotte Brontë’s experiences, Professor John Pfordresher of Georgetown University finds striking parallels that illuminate Brontë’s inspirations and motivations. He shows us new ways to understand the novel and adds to what we know of Brontë’s relationships with her father and brother, her experiences as a governess, and her passion for a married man. Pfordresher’s lecture will be the English program’s annual Bastian Lecture, which honors our late colleague Carol Bastian.
