I haven't read the book, just pages of excerpts, concentrating on Rochester's words and actions. I think what bugs me the most is when people say they'll never look at Rochester the same again. Really? They're so easily swayed by someone else's interpretation of a character, that they forget what they learn about him in Jane Eyre? And do they forget that the book ends 10 years after Jane's marriage to him and that all the qualities she saw in him (as well as the ones buried down inside), were real and actualized? And, if he really did want to rid himself of Bertha, as WSS likes to point out, then why keep her in the attic? He could have committed her long ago. His reasons for keeping her there, were compassionate ones. From what I've read of WSS, the narrative is interesting with her decent into madness amidst cultural and gender conflict, but I don't like that it's taken as truth over Bronte's story... Defaming someone else's created character rubs me the wrong way.
