Jane Eyre Manga Review

Another literary classic retold in manga form, this time we’re eyeing up social class, equality and crazy shit. Jane Eyre, for those of you unaware, is set in ye olde England in the late 1700’s to early 1800’s written by Charlotte Bronte. You may also have heard of her sister Emily Bronte who wrote the other classic story Wuthering Heights, clearly dark broody men were a favourite among sisters. It is a really good book that was quite forward for its time in the themes it wanted to bring to light, much like Austen, it focuses particularly on women of this time and what power or lack of power they had over their own lives as well as religion and wealth.
