Where everything old is news again

Kathy Vincenz, children's writer

Ginger Rogers is great fun in several skits: She plays a female comedienne and a kid TV host, imitates several types of singers, and does a fun dance number to Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries (although I like Doris’ version better from her recent CD). Thanks to the Ginger Rogers Resource for letting me know about these. .

Reader, it’s Jane Eyre - Crash Course Literature 207

In which John Green teaches you about Charlotte Brontë’s classic coming of age novel, Jane Eyre. Look, we don’t like to make judgement values here, but Jane Eyre is awesome. By which we mean the book is great, and the character is amazing. When Jane Eyre was published in 1847, it was a huge hit. It really hit the controversial balance beautifully, being edgy enough to make news, but still mainstream enough to be widely popular. It was sort of like the Fight Club of it’s day, but not quite as testosterone-fueled. You’ll learn a little about the story, learn about Jane as a feminist heroine, and even get some critical analysis on how Bertha might just be a dark mirror that acts out Jane’s emotional reactions.

Don’t agree with everything. Too much of an analysis from a feminist perspective when there is so much more to the novel—it reduces it.
