To Walk Invisible, airing on the BBC later this month:

I'm planning to try teaching Jane Eyre again this year in English 9 after failing at it my first year: we just ran out of time to actually finish the novel; I hadn't realized how long it actually takes to get through The Odyssey while trying to teach students to close-read! But I'm wondering whether it might be fun - if time allows, of course - to also talk a bit about the role of the Brontes in the popular imagination, from their first publication onward. It'll be interesting to see what sort of response this period drama gets.
