[W. M. Thackeray to W. S. Williams, 23 October 1847:] "I wish you had not sent me Jane Eyre. It interested me so much that I have lost (or won if you like) a whole day in reading it at the busiest period with the printers I know wailing for copy. Who the author can be I can"t guess, if a woman she knows her language better than most ladies do, or has had a ""classical"" education. It is a fine book though, the man and woman capital, the style very generous and upright so to speak. I thought it was Kinglake for some time. The plot of the story is one with wh. I am familiar. Some of the love passages made me cry, to the astonishment of John, who came in with the coals. St John the missionary is a failure I think but a good failure, there are parts excellent [...] I have been exceedingly moved and pleased by Jane Eyre. It is a woman"s writing, but whose? Give my respects and thanks to the author, whose novel is the first English one (and the French are only romances now) that I"ve been able to read for many a day."
