Below is a game that I created about the book Jane Eyre based on jeopardy. This game is letting the players show their knowledge, and of course, show my knowledge and analysis on some of the characters in Jane Eyre. The character slots are listed “Character 1”, “Character 2”, and so on so that the… Read more A project on Jane Eyre…and those around her.
“The Red Room” in Jane Eyre can apply to every woman who has ever felt “trapped” by their role in society as a woman. This picture is, of course, of Jane shown completely in mostly black-and-white (not red) contradictory to the title name. This is a metaphor for the way in which we have a… Read more The Lady in Red
I believe that history reinvents itself. The world today is comparatively different from the past two centuries not only culturally but literarily, as ways to express the human condition and societal problems evolved in the realm of poetry. History has been written and we are still in the process of telling it; literature should be… Read more Words of Poetry to Voices of Spoken Word

Reflection Jane Eyre inherently invokes discussions of feminism – being one of the first widely popular books being told from the point of view from a female character.

For this final project, I’d originally intended to write a poem from Jane Eyre’s perspective in the style of Carrion Comfort by Gerard Hopkins. I then switched gears to writing the poem from the POV of Jane Eyre to that of Antoinette, until I finally scrapped the Hopkins part and just wrote a poem about… Read more Matt writes fanfic I think
*Warning: talk of suicide and disabilities* I have spent hours starring at this blank page, watching the cursor blink as the letters on the keyboard taunt me. I have been putting this off for weeks. I remember the first class we had where the assignment was to post on the WordPress page about disabilities. That… Read more R.I.P. To The Best Ones
I decided for my last project to do another song, but I really wanted to challenge myself this time, so I decided to use the ukulele as my instrument of choice. This was most certainly a challenge because the fretboard is so tiny, and my fingers are rather large so the chords I played in… Read more A Melody
Disclaimer: I will be comparing only Jane Eyre and Rebecca (1940), the movie not the book, because I have only seen the movie and not read the book and don’t know if there are huge differences between them. Even though Jane Eyre is mostly regarded as a Romance novel, I believe like Rebecca, which is known as a Gothic… Read more Jane Eyre + Rebecca — Gothic Romance
When it comes to Shakespearean literature, you could not find a bigger fan than me. Most freshman in high school despise reading Romeo and Juliet because they simply do not understand. But me? I raised my hand to volunteer for every part to read aloud in front of the class. Sophomore year, my love grew… Read more Was Shakespeare Sexist or Did He Just Have a Small Penis?
