The Writing’s On The Wall: Jane Eyre

The Writing’s On The Wall is a regular feature on Pop! Goes The Reader in which I create desktop wallpapers inspired by some of my favourite novels.

First of all, I would like to thank Patty at Imaginative Minds for her wonderful suggestion of Jane Eyre in the last post. I’m only ashamed that I didn’t think of it myself! Strange though it may sound, Brontë’s Jane Eyre was always a childhood favourite of mine that I would re-read endlessly when I was little. Almost immediately after I began brainstorming as to how best to pay tribute to such a beloved classic, I was struck with the idea to approach this novel from two very different perspectives. The first wallpaper is meant to be a more modern, playful interpretation. Sure, I know it’s wildly inaccurate, but I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. It’s exactly as I envisioned it beforehand. The second wallpaper is a much more traditional interpretation, but I’m no less pleased with the result. Hopefully between the two you can find the one that works best for you!

Orphaned into the household of her Aunt Reed at Gateshead, subject to the cruel regime at Lowood charity school, Jane Eyre nonetheless emerges unbroken in spirit and integrity. She takes up the post of governess at Thornfield, falls in love with Mr. Rochester, and discovers the impediment to their lawful marriage in a story that transcends melodrama to portray a woman’s passionate search for a wider and richer life than Victorian society traditionally allowed. With a heroine full of yearning, the dangerous secrets she encounters, and the choices she finally makes, Charlotte Bronte’s innovative and enduring romantic novel continues to engage and provoke readers.

  3. I love these wallpapers! They’re beautiful. Jane Eyre is one of my favorite classics and I found it not tedious to read at all, which was strange for me since classics are normally not my favorite things to read. The second wallpaper is my favorite, but as I said before I love them both! 🙂

  4. I just finished re-reading this in the last few days and loved it for the second time around 🙂

    Both wallpapers are incredible, but if I have to pick (which I do because I want to use one as my wallpaper :D) I am going with the second one.
