"Gentle reader, may you never feel what I then felt! May your eyes never shed such stormy, scalding, heart-wrung tears as poured from mine. May you never appeal to Heaven in prayers so hopeless and so agonized as in that hour left my lips; for never may you, like me, dread to be the instrument of evil to what you wholly love."
In our Jane Eyre ad campaign, we have numerous themes that carry our message of why
a) Jane Eyre is the best classic out of all the competing literature works
b) why people should read it.
Our themes focus on issues such as gender roles, social class, and individuality - all of which are firmly emphasized in Charlotte Bronte's novel, Jane Eyre.
Several of these themes (at least the ones shorter in length) are on the banners page. We encourage you to pick one up and display it on your blog or website if you support our campaign that Jane Eyre is the best classic out of all the competing classics and want others to read it. :)
This theme stresses the value of being unique and simply yourself. Jane highly regards this principle of individuality as she strives to become an independent young woman with an extraordinary mindset.
Be Different (break out of your box)
Again, this theme reiterates the idea that it is perfectly right to be different from others and break out of the social and gender norms of a certain era. In Victorian times, Jane is certainly different from other women of both low and high social status; she is unequalled by anyone else.
Uniqueness is an important quality to everyone, and is encouraged especially in today's diverse society.
Wit not Beauty
Plain from birth, Jane has no features that she can call beautiful. However, the vivacity of her mind and spirit, as well as her intellectual well being, easily prevail over her deficiencies in appearance.
Look Beyond the Surface
A person's character is not based solely on his/her appearance; a person must be judged on who he/she is on the inside. For all of Blanche Ingram's accomplishments, beauty, and wealth, she is hardly as amiable and thoughtful as Jane, who lacks all of Blanche's qualities that were just mentioned. Many people fail to notice this and regard Miss Ingram with the highest esteem; however, those who look beyond the surface - Mr. Rochester, for example - realize that Jane is a much more desirable companion.
