07.05.2021 - I finished my theory reading! Well, for the time being anyway... I've also started a spreadsheet to track mentions of issues around communion in visitation articles, yeah it's become that "interesting" folks!
Now I'm just battling through Villette, I'm desperate just to get it done at this point... I hate everyone in it, there's 0 plot, and I can't understand why people seem to prefer it over Jane Eyre?! If anyone wants to explain the appeal then please feel free.
Currently reading: Villette by Charlotte Brontë; Sailing to Sarantium by Guy Gavriel Kay

Ciarán Hinds and Samantha Morton in Jane Eyre (1997) - The Sunrise on Millcote Hill
“The ease of his manner freed me from painful restraint: the friendly frankness, as correct as cordial, with which he treated me, drew me to him. I felt at times as if he were my relation rather than my master: yet he was imperious sometimes still; but I did not mind that; I saw it was his way. So happy, so gratified did I become with this new interest added to life, that I ceased to pine after kindred: my thin crescent-destiny seemed to enlarge; the blanks of existence were filled up; my bodily health improved; I gathered flesh and strength.”
― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

HEAVEN, UNWANTED HOMELAND
I want to remind you that the Lord at one time delivered his people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe. And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling, these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains. — The Epistle of Jude, 1:5-6

“Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living. You said I killed you--haunt me then. The murdered do haunt their murderers. I believe--I know that ghosts have wandered the earth. Be with me always--take any form--drive me mad. Only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! It is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!”
                                                           ― Heathcliff, Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

In thinking about Jane Eyre, and Pamela, and all the other novels about how a Good Woman will magically repair the wanton ways of a Bad Man simply by being so good that he cannot help but find the error of his ways or whatever, and in thinking about the ways that Tenant of Wildfell Hall is a direct response to that, it really strikes me how poisonous that entire mindset of "if you're very very good, he'll change!" actually is.
Like yeah I know it was the 18th and 19th centuries and nobody actually, like, cared about women or abuse but god isn't it sickening to take someone who's been abused or harassed by their husband or their employer or whatever other man and then tell them that, actually, if they had just been good then he would have mended his ways! The reason they're suffering is because they weren't pure and good enough to motivate him to be better.
And god it's such a relief to turn to Wildfell Hall and its explicit message of "I will do the good thing and the right thing and I would like him to change but ultimately it's his choice and it's not my fault if he doesn't." Like, the whole point is that she has to face the reality that she can be unimpeachable in her conduct and do everything good and right and that's not going to do anything to someone who doesn't care. And the thing about "virtue novels" or whatever is that it's also like, the goodness of the woman is in the end just a tool towards the salvation of the man, and Anne Bronte rejects that out of hand by focusing on how Helen's goodness is her own salvation and her husband can't just ride her coattails into Heaven or whatever.

Ciarán Hinds and Samantha Morton in Jane Eyre (1997) - Unspoken Feelings
"I believe he is of mine - I am sure he is - I feel akin to him - I understand the language of his countenance and movements: though rank and wealth sever us widely, I have something in my brain and heart, in my blood and nerves, that assimilates me mentally to him. Did I say, a few days since, that I had nothing to do with him but to receive my salary at his hands? Did I forbid myself to think of him in any other light than as a paymaster? Blasphemy against nature! Every good, true, vigorous feeling I have gathers impulsively round him. I know I must conceal my sentiments: I must smother hope; I must remember that he cannot care much for me. For when I say that I am of his kind, I do not mean that I have his force to influence, and his spell to attract; I mean only that I have certain tastes and feelings in common with him. I must, then, repeat continually that we are for ever sundered - and yet, while I breathe and I think, I must love him.”
― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
