I am taking a wonderful course title Eros and Gothic Literature. Two assignments are Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre. There is a reason why these novels have survived the test of time. They are beautifully written with strong characters. They are about passion, love, and family with elements of mystery and surprise thrown in. Both, but especially Jane Eyre, is the perfect summer read for a teenage girl. I loved rereading both of them after at least a forty year hiatus.
