Squee and Ramble

Whether over the Autobiography of Jane Eyre, Lizzie Bennet Diaries, Lord of the Rings, Emma Approved, Harry Potter or whatever else catches my fancy, there will be sqeeing, and there will be rambling. :)

It’s always about, somehow, finding a part of myself that is relevant, and then turning the volume up on that particular part. So, I am all of the characters I’ve ever played, and I am none of them at the same time.” — Tom Hiddleston

tiger-bones asked: You can consider most men of the 19th century predators if we are to look at it from our century's POV. Girls got married as young as 16 back then,as they 'officially came into society' at that age - moms and aunts were trying to find them suitable husbands. Most in that time would have considered Jane already an 'old lady' considering she was 19/20 and did not have a husband or children yet. Sexual predators depend on the morals of their time I suppose?I don't think of Rochester as such though.

Yes, a look back at 19th Century society is pretty terrifying!

Would your perspective on Rochester change if you defined being predator not in terms of age difference but in terms of power difference and exploitation?
