St. John Rivers by suburbanbeatnik St. John Rivers by suburbanbeatnik
I read "Jane Eyre" again recently-- I actually enjoyed it lot more than I did when I was fifteen. St. John Rivers, Jane's cousin, my favorite two-fisted Victorian missionary, is actually a pretty interesting guy. Yes, he's a self-righteous pill, but he's tough, honest and smart, and I find him less annoying than Mr. Rochester.

I really wish someone would write a sequel about this character. Though I might have to do it myself...

St John is interesting indeed (eheh), but how come you can find Rochester irritating?

My English teacher thought I was nuts, but she liked the essay I wrote on him. :D

You don't have your essay online, do you? I'd love to see it.
