A New Year Full of Bronte

As we prepare for the new year, it seems that more than a few people are turning their attention to the Brontes, in particular to Jane Eyre but also Wuthering Heights. Several bookish bloggers have prepared, instead of a list of resolutions for the new year, a reading list. Several of these include JE and WH. Others have chalked up the Brontes on their list of books read in 2005. Still others take this liminal time to reflect on change, and this brings to mind Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. I can certainly see why the novel would be fit for such reflection although it had never occurred to me before. Although many many people are apt to forget it, JE is not only a romance. I recomend reading Eva's post, New Year, New Meaning?

Also, we should not forget that there is quite a lot for us to look forward to in the new year!

A possible new BBC adaptation of Jane Eyre starts production?
Release after more than thirty years of the BBC's 1973 version of Jane Eyre.
Release of Anne Bronte's Tenant of Wildfell Hall on DVD.
Biopic 'Bronte' possibly to begin production?
University courses.

And, quite exciting for me: Publication of 'Jane Eyre'on Stage, 1848-1882: an Edition of Eight Victorian Plays Based on Charlotte Bronte's Novel
