Jane Eyre

As I write BBC1 is repeating the first episode of its latest adaptation of Jane Eyre. And very good it looks too.

I am left wondering again at those who argue that the Victorians had no concept of child abuse - see my discussion here if you are really interested. Do they imagine that the first readers of the novel sympathised with the authorities at Lowood Hall?
