Evidence

Charlotte Bronte (as Currer Bell) to her publisher, W. S. Williams, 29 March 1848: <br/><br/> "The notice from the ""Church of England Quarterly Review"" is not on the whole a bad one. True, it condemns the tendency of ""Jane Eyre,"" and seems to think Mr Rochester should have been represented as going through the mystic process of ""regeneration"" before any respectable person could have consented to believe his contrition for the past errors sincere; true, also, that it casts a doubt on Jane"s creed, and leaves it doubtful whether she was Hindoo, Mahommedan, or infidel. But nothwithstanding these eccentricities, it is a conscientious notice, very unlike that in the ""Mirror,"" for instance, which seems the result of a feeble sort of spite, whereas this is the critic"s real opinion: some of the ethical and theological notions are not according to his system, and he disapproves of them."
