About Me

My absolute favorite novel (or possibly anything ever) is ”Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Brontë. I first read this book when I was 15, and I find it a constant source of happiness. It is the very ideal of a book for me. The above picture was taken in the gardens of Renishaw Hall (which played Thornfield in the 1973 adaptation), and obviously, I was thrilled to be there! In addition to maintaining this website, I also have an Eyre-devoted blog called The Eyre Guide where I talk more personally about the novel. When I'm not talking about the novel, I enjoy the perks of living in California, and of working in a science lab.

About this website: I first created it in 2006, with just a simple page of comparisons and opinions on the different adaptations I had seen. As I collected more bits of information relating to Jane Eyre, I thought it would nice to put them up someplace, and my Eyre Guide website seemed the most suitable.

Jane Eyre Survey

In 2016 I conducted a lengthy survey on this website about the Jane Eyre fandom, and compiled the information I received into the infographic below.

Fan Videos

I love to make Jane Eyre themed fan videos (although I haven't made any in awhile!).

JE/"Bliss" by Muse

Rochester falling in love

JE/"Falling Away With You" by Muse

After the wedding. I used clips from the different adaptations

JE/"Home" by Morgan James

Jane realizes she needs to be back at Thornfield.

JE/"A Lonely Decision" by Murray Gold

The story in 3 1/2 minutes. This one seems to be my most popular on youtube- going by the number of views.

JE/"Feel So Close" by Calvin Harris

A retrospective of eight adaptations.

JE/"Decode" by Paramore

Jane trying to figure Mr. Rochester out. (and vice versa)

JE/"Miss Chatelaine" by K.D. Lang

A short video. The joy of first love. This is mostly the engagement.

JE/as a silent movie

Because I loved "The Artist" and especially the song "In The Stairs" from the film, I had a little fun putting this scene from Jane Eyre to the song, and seeing how the scene played out as a silent movie.

JE/"In the Still of the Night" by Rebecca Luker

Jane Eyre 1973 vid with Jane exploring her feelings for Rochester.

JE/"The Scientist" & "God If I Saw Her Now"

Multi-adaptation video that explores Rochester's and Jane's POV after the interrupted wedding and Jane's leaving. This is actually my personal favorite video of the ones I have made!
