Can Jane Eyre be Happy? Summary

Can Jane Eyre be Happy?: More Puzzles in Classic Fiction by J. A. Sutherland

In response to appeals from readers and reviewers to "Is Heathcliff A Murderer?", the collection of 19th-century literary anomalies, enigmas and mysteries, John Sutherland turns up more unexpected and brain-teasing aspects from the British and American canon. With bold speculation he investigates 35 literary conundrums, ranging from Daniel Defoe to James Joyce: why does Robinson Crusoe find only "one" footprint? How does Magwitch swim to shore with a great iron on his leg? What is Croy's "unspeakable offence" in "The Wings of the Dove" ? Why don't the Rochesters get a divorce? And who moved the piano in Ulysess ? These questions are answered and the author aims to return the reader with new respect to the great novels that inspire them.
