SYNTHESIS OF CRITICISM irkus Review, Jane: A Modern Romantic Retelling of Jane Eyre. Review published Sept. 15, 2010. Viewed Feb. 12. 2013. Web. www.kirkusreviews.com Flashes of originality, wit and vivid imagery bring the story to life intermittently, but the distracting improbabilities pull readers out of the story again and again. SYNTHESIS OF CRITICISM K

apurch, Katie. ""'Why Can't You Love Me the Way I Am?': Fairy Tales, Girlhood, and Agency in Neo-Victorian Visions of Jane Eyre N.p., n.d. Web. 11 Feb. 2013. T his article references Sandra Gilberts critique of Jane Eyre, who says the reason the story of Jane Eyre is so incredibly popular during the Victorian era is because of its inclusion of familiar fairy-tale structures and imagery. Kapurch suggests that Jane by April Linder continues the trend of fairy-tale inclusion by modernizing the character using current representations of girlhood, femininity, and what it means to be a heroine.

SYNTHESIS OF CRITICISM G ilbert, Sandra M., and Susan Gubar. The Madwoman in the Attic: The Woman Writer and the Nineteenth-century Literary Imagination. New Haven: Yale UP, 1979. Print. G ilbert and Gubar use the character Bertha Mason from Charlotte Brontes Jane Eyre to argue that female characters of the nineteenth century were notoriously portrayed as either the monster or the angel. They use Bertha to prove that even women authors of the Victorian period struggled with characterizing

female characters in a manner other than the monster or the angel.
