Abstract

One purpose of this thesis is to discover and explain the importance of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. I will also discuss how the character of Jane is developed in three different versions --the novel itself, the 1983 CBS/Fox video directed by Julian Anyes, produced by Barry Letts and starring Timothy Dalton and Zelah Clarke, and the 1944 Twentieth Century Fox video directed by Robert Stevenson, produced by William Goetz and starring Orson Welles and Joan Fontaine. I have reported the various results and conclusions concerning the accuracy of the films in relation to the novel.
