Finally, after hours of reading, it’s time to conclude on these five English classics I have read. I believe that all of these books are innovative for one reason or another. Let’s take a closer look at that, book by book.
Jane Eyre has a clear feminist message that was obviously ahead of its time and is considered as a proto-feminist novel (a feminist novel before feminism was invented). The novel is set in Victorian England, at a time when patriarchy ruled the political and social life.
I’m really excited to share with you my first post in my “Back to Classics” series, where I pick up and review five classics from a specific place on earth. This month is going to be devoted to English classics, and I am going to post three blog posts about what I have read.
This post and the next one are going to be a summary and some thoughts about the classics I’ve read. My third post will be a conclusion on these classics and will also go a bit deeper into some topics common to these books and why they are classics.
