I transcribed this quote from a story, “New podcast asks whether the classic novel Jane Eyre is relevant for readers today,” that ran on NPR’s All Things Considered, December 9, 2021. During the story, author Marlon James was asked about removing classic literature from today’s curriculum and censorship of books considered to be “classics”; this was his response . . .
“If [we] start going after books . . . that are . . . offensive, there’ll be no English literature. My problem isn’t that these books carry on; my problem is that critical thinking has stopped.
Jane Eyre was written in 1847 by Charlotte Brontë under the pseudonym Currer Bell and is widely considered to be a work of classic English-language literature.
