Bronte?

Finished Jane Eyre yesterday at lunch. Although the book is full of beautiful imagery and poetic descriptions, the politics (all contemporary to the author) are repulsive. The execution of the plot, although well written, is so entangled with the disgusting politics (women are only going through life trying to find a perfect man to marry, the people of Africa and India need to be brought to civilization and to Gawd by well-meaning foreigners, ...) that I found it distasteful, and it even made me dislike Jane towards the end of the novel, despite having given over my sympathies to her on the first page, as the author ahd intended.
