In response to Jane Eyre, written by Emma Elizabeth Anne on September 02, 1998 at 07:00:23
] Is it better to have the central characters always physically beautiful, or is a story improved when the heroes and heroines are, as Jane Eyre describes herself, "poor, little, obscure and plain"??
I find that I can relate better to those characters who are not beautiful and rich. After all, I am not rich or beautiful. It gives one hope that even though you are not a goddess, you will be able to find true love after all. On the other hand, I think it's even better when the hero is handsome and the heroine is plain or just cute.
] Other books and movies run as though passionate love is/was restricted to the rich and beautiful.
I really enjoy watching movies with gorgeous heros and heroines who dress in those wonderful 19th century costumes. It is soothing to the eyes after seeing what the teenagers are wearing these days! Wouldn't it be nice if we could dress beautifully again instead of those big pants the kids are wearing?
