Bronteana: Bronte Studies Blog Archives

"Where did you see Latmos?…"

Why, here of course. Thanks to Thisbeciel, we have some clips to show you from the BBC's 1973 Jane Eyre, starring Sorcha Cusack and Michael Jayston, which is due for DVD release this June. It is much loved for its fidelity to the book as well as for the calibre of the cast.

"I was tormented between my idea and my handiwork. Each time I would imagine something- something I was quite powerless to realise…"

The Interrupted Wedding

As you see, there are other Jane Eyre clips on this site, including the 'Sirens' performance from Jane Eyre: The Musical presented at the Tony awards, for which the show was nominated. Also there is a clip from the Hindi film Sangdil, which I will have much to say about at a later date.

Also, I would like to say that the Brontëana resource site also has a bunch of new etexts, mostly juvenilia but there are also some pieces by Branwell, and Patrick Brontë

I may have to be scarce this week. As I told one of my professors today, my workload for the week will probably reduce me to a puddle of goo by Sunday. At least I have that novel edited and annotated… and a commentary written… and… suggested revisions made… I just have to write the backcover copy, then write a paper on writer contracts, another paper on the Romance of the Rose, prepare for an in-class essay on Beckett, and then prepare for my first real conference! I will be presenting a paper on Emperor Claudius- which is fitting because last night I stepped on a thorn and now I have a nice Claudian limp. Here's hoping that those attending the conference think that I'm trying to be amusing.



  1. Heyho! Thanks for those, they look spiffing. Where is the Sangdil clip? Good luck with all your work.

  2. These are not my favourite scenes, but all of it is a pleasure for me to watch. I should try to persuade her to upload the scene where Jane puts out the fire. The acting in that scene is really something to see!

    The Sangdil clip is on the latest post. Thank you for the support- I need it 🙂 I’m not finished these papers yet but I’ve made a lot of progress. *sigh* Back to work!

  4. Huzzah! You are too good! Now I will have something to ease my pain today, while I am at the university.
