Continuing on from my “Jane Eyre” post from yesterday, I’m curious what you think about this: I have a theory that you are either a “Jane” or a “Catherine.” You adore Heathcliff or you swoon for Rochester. If you’re a Cathy, Rochester is too abrupt, too sulky, and too self-involved and Jane is self-sacrificing to the point of masochism. If you’re a Jane, Cathy and Heathcliff aren’t in love, they’re sick; they just enjoy tormenting each other.
Either you love “Wuthering Heights” or you love “Jane Eyre.” I love “Jane Eyre;” I have yet to finish “Wuthering Heights.” Can’t stand it. What about you?
