Jane Eyre in Context

Literary Contexts: 19th Century Fiction

The lives of women in Victorian Britain were marked by limited opportunities and strict expectations regarding their behaviour. Poor understanding of mental illness and strong beliefs surrounding religious morality influenced society’s perception of women. This programme looks into the real-life background to and Gothic aspects of Charlotte Brontë’s ‘Jane Eyre’. It provides a valuable accompaniment to senior English students studying this text.
