Jane Eyre

9781596881976

 

Jane Eyre

by Charlotte Brointe

Jane Eyre follows the emotions and the experiences of its title character, including her growth to adulthood, and her love for Mr. Rochester, the master of fictitious Thornfield Hall. In its internalization of the action—the focus is on the gradual unfolding of Jane’s moral and spiritual sensibility and all events are colored by a heightened intensity that was previously the domain of poetry—Jane Eyre changed the writing of  fiction. Charlotte Brontë has been called the “first historian of the private consciousness” and the literary ancestor of writers like James Joyce and Marcel Proust. The novel
contains elements of social criticism, with a strong sense of morality at its core, but is nonetheless a novel many consider ahead of its time given the unique character of Jane and the novel’s exploration of the themes of classism, sexuality, religion, and proto-feminism. Published in September 2016.

by P.G. Wodehouse

This is the book that introduces the character of Rupert Psmith (the “P” is silent), who is something of a dandy, and has an uncanny ability to pass through the most amazing adventures unruffled. Mike Jackson is a schoolboy cricketeer who is sent to a smaller school because of his poor grades. There he meets and becomes friends with Psmith, an ex-Etonian cricketeer. Together they pull pranks, thwart an overbearing house master, and end up beating Mike’s former school in a climactic game.

His brother, Gerald, Duke of Denver, has been arrested for the murder. Cathcart was killed by a bullet from Denver’s revolver, and Denver’s only alibi is that he was out for a walk at the time Cathcart died.
