READER, I MARRIED HIM: RE-INVENTING THE ROMANCE OF JANE EYRE
Wednesday 25 April: Talk with Prof Sue Zlosnik
Charlotte Brontë’s novel Jane Eyre has continued to fascinate both readers and writers since its publication in 1847.
Sue Zlosnik takes a look at its afterlife: how its romance plot has been adopted and adapted time and again in popular romance fiction and has inspired talented writers, most notably Jean Rhys in Wide Sargasso Sea and Daphne du Maurier in Rebecca, to create novels that are rich and disturbing in their own right.
Sue Zlosnik lives in Frodsham and is Emeritus Professor of English at Manchester Metropolitan University.
She has published extensively on fiction from the nineteenth century to the present day, most recently as co-editor of the Edinburgh Companion, Women and the Gothic.
