"What a great nose! and what a mouth!" ~ Jane Eyre

Dear Bloggers O'The World,

My Aunty Amy nose I am the bestest nephew!


Love, Jack

True on the nose and mouth, but oh, come on: I say the quotation's made up. It just seems to me that Rochester would have said something like "Now there's a fine figger of a woman..."
(Or was that somebody in Hard Times...)

Paul ~ This is from early on in Chapter Four when Jane describles Brocklehurst! My Aunty Amy never makes up quotes from Janey - Bronte forbid! Here is the passage from Chapter 4:

Impossible to reply to this in the affirmative: my little world held a contrary opinion: I was silent. Mrs. Reed answered for me by an expressive shake of the head, adding soon, "Perhaps the less said on that subject the better, Mr. Brocklehurst."

"Sorry indeed to hear it! she and I must have some talk;" and bending from the perpendicular, he installed his person in the arm- chair opposite Mrs. Reed's. "Come here," he said.

I stepped across the rug; he placed me square and straight before him. What a face he had, now that it was almost on a level with mine! what a great nose! and what a mouth! and what large prominent teeth!

*Thanks for the compliments on my nose!* Love, Jack

Vixen ~ Thank you ever so much! :)
