This brown bag lunch features Mallory Ortberg (The Toast, Texts From Jane Eyre), speaking on the continued popularity and relevance of Charlotte Brontë’s classic Gothic-Victorian novel. First published in 1847 under the byline “Currer Bell,” Jane Eyre revolutionized the art of fiction, and although criticized as anti-Christian, was eventually praised for its fearless exploration of the themes of classism, sexuality, religion, and feminism.
