Jane Eyre's fairytale legacy at home and abroad : constructions and deconstructions of national identity

Abigail Heiniger

Exploring the literary microcosm inspired by Brontë's debut novel, this book focuses on the nationalistic stakes of the mythic and fairytale paradigms that were incorporated into the heroic female bildungsroman tradition. Challenging the American reception of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre as a version of "Cinderella," Abigail Heiniger provides a fascinating analysis of the persistence of an interpretive tradition that for cultural and ideological reasons remains uncontested.
