Trailer for Episode Two of Jane Eyre

Thanks to Pennyforyourdreams!

I must apologise for not posting yesterday, but this little Bronte scholar is, well... working on scholarship. Annotated bibliographies wait for neither time nor bloggery. But after spending the whole of the day in this lovely library I will allow myself a moment of not reading Canadian Modernist poetry.

I have a little more news as well. On the 20th I will be taking part in a round table seminar on digital Romanticism at Dalhousie University, to talk about Bronteana and the Brontes on the internet. And in the midst of all of my other projects and hobbies, I plan on submitting a paper to a conference in North Carolina on entertainments in Victorian literature. I've long wanted to examine art songs, and such- going to see gypsys and that sort of thing... I'm a very happy grad student at the moment.

Ps. Oh, I am also aware that I'm falling behind with comments and email. Just be a patient and I'll reply to everyone.

Wow, with all that work, I'm surprised you even have any energy for blogging as well :)

Good luck with all the work, it sounds really interesting.

So it looks like another blond Blanche.

Sounds like you are doing alot of hard work. Thanks for taking the time for the post and have fun!

I almost forgot to mention this...ever since the last scene of ep. 1 and now this preview, my husband calls this the hottest of the Jane Eyres...or Jane "the hotty". But he makes sure to point out that he refers to Jane with her hair down. As I type he just said, "yeah go running to Rochester like that and he'll never let you leave" :-)

to Liz:

It is amazing what you can accomplish when you willingly confine yourself to a desk for the day!

to penny:

It is tiring sometimes, but blogging is fun and I need to have fun after writing all day :)

to chrisv:

Yes, poor blonds of the world! Made to bear the stereotypes of snobby aristocrats.

to chrisv:

My brain has turned to mush. I can't remember who it was, but someone thought of what might be going on during that little scene when Pilot scratches at the door. You know you can hear Mr Rochester calling Pilot at the end, so they thought perhaps he had been sent just to get Miss Eyre to walk out of her room in her nightie.
