The Autobiography of Jane Eyre: A Web Series
In the same vein as The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, a popular web series that modernized Pride and Prejudice, The Autobiography of Jane Eyre gives a new spin to the classic Charlotte Brontë novel. Similar to The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, each episode is a vlog by Jane Eyre as she narrates poignantly about her everyday life (or lack thereof). The production of the episodes are well-done, and if you visit their official website you’ll find out why (there’s a team of 13 putting it all together). And in addition to a Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram account (all done in the voice of “Jane Eyre”) , you can tell a lot of thought and effort has been put into making Jane Eyre a modern, living person.
Here’s hoping this “modern-take-on-classic-novels” trend continues. Next up: Wuthering Heights?
