...i think that's why i adore this book so much. i relate to Jane Eyre more than any other fictional character.
it's way past my bedtime again, but the "set-up" for meeting rochester reminds me of another cool set-up, and i just have to mention it. it occurs right before the fire in rochester's room(just before she goes to sleep, no less!): "mrs. fairfax said he[rochester] seldom stayed here longer than a fortnight at a time; and he has now been resident more than eight weeks. if he does go, the change will be doleful. suppose he should be absent spring, summer, and autumn: how joyless sunshine and fine days will seem!" bronte's got us right where she wants us!
