The Classics - CLOSING LINES: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

(1943 version)



"My Master," he says, "has forewarned me. Daily He announces more distinctly, 'Surely I come quickly!' and hourly I more eagerly respond, 'Amen; even so come, Lord Jesus!'" 

(Published 1847)






I love the classics and plan to alternately share some "CLOSING lines" over the coming months. Comment if you wish, or read for inspiration. Writing styles were different then, or were they really?

  2. I thought the book cover was almost eerie. Have never seen this before. Have you?

  3. I had to reread the closing line more than once. No one would expect this closing line to be from this book

    1. Same here. It came as a surprise. I loved this book in my youth.

  4. The cover (striking) and the lines make me think of death ... is that what he is referring to? Makes me tremble a wee bit ...

    1. Ooh..Interesting observation. Jane and Mr. Rochester find happiness in the end.

"Stay" is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary
(A.B. Alcott). Stay and visit awhile. Your comments mean a lot to me.
