Episode Six is devoted to the Charlotte Bronte novel Jane Eyre.
This week we take the role of men of the Victorian era and sip port while discussing the bird/angel/fairy/sprite/goblin/thing that is the description of Jane Eyre. We also discuss the horrors of dating, better options for Jane, and reference our thankfulness that we don’t feel men are a project.
To drink along: Port
Fill a large glass with Madeira or Port. Bemoan your own days of dating. Question all of your life choices. Ruin the life of an innocent person while you keep your spouse in the attic.
