There's a funky book I read once called "Regarding Jane Eyre" (ed.
Susan Geason ISBN: 0091835038). It was a collection of different
pieces about or relating to Jane Eyre: an except from Wide Sargasso
Sea, the essay from The Madwoman in the Attic by Gilbert and Gubar,
an email conversation between a writer and Jane regarding hypertext
and various motifs which appear in the novel, and heaps of other
things. It was certainly very thought-provoking.

I've just had a look on Amazon and it says that it's out of print. :(
