In response to Jane's Power, written by Cheryl on October 13, 1997 at 23:32:29
] ] ] We spoke of humor the other week, and I chuckle all through the conversation when Rochester is quizzing Jane about St. John. "Did you like him? You say he was 50? His brain is soft? He's ugly? He's priggish? (aside) Damn him!" ;-)
] ] she has her power back!
] Speaking of Jane's power, I just read an article in which Ciaran Hinds spoke of Rochester. He said
Rochester is a character a lot of women hold dear in their hearts, though, for the life of me, I can't understand why. He is self-centered, arrogant, haughty- a driven man. I'm not totally unromantic- though perhaps verging on cynical- but I suspect that once they were married Jane would have soon had him under her thumb. But then Rochester certianly deserved it!
That CH seems like a man I'd like to meet.(sigh)
I think Rochester is like lots of men. They want to appear in charge, they are blustery full grown mastiffs, and some are afraid of them. But then someone comes along, scratchs them behind the ears, and they turn into little mewling puppies.
