Jane Eyre The Graphic Novel: Original Text
Jane Eyre The Graphic Novel: Original Text. Charlotte Bronte. 2009. Classical Comics. 144 pages.
I am not always a graphic novel fan. But. I just LOVED this one. I did. It's Jane Eyre, so the potential to be great was there of course. I chose to read the version that uses the original text of the novel in its narration/dialogue. (There is a QuickText edition as well.)
I thought they did a GREAT job illustrating this one. I thought they did a wonderful job with Jane Eyre and Edward Rochester--capturing the romance between these two! I also liked seeing the artistic interpretation of the novel's themes. I had forgotten how religion/faith is a central part of this one. (Primarily we see this through Helen--Jane's childhood friend--and Jane's missionary cousin.)
For my thoughts on the novel--on the story itself, see my review of the novel.
