In this inaugural first episode, I look at the source material Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. Why do I love it so? Why do people despise it? Why does it endure? I answer these questions before diving into a plot synopsis and giving historical context to the novel. I then examine the Classical trope of "dutiful wife vs sorceress," three varied types of Christians, Jane's heroine's journey, and more!
In the second half of the episode, I speak with licensed marriage and family therapist Dr. Renae Lapin about the men in Jane's life and her relationships with them.
