The main characters of the story are two young women, one a "have" and the other a middle class "have-not." I also understand that this is the first time that the plight of the single woman is dealt with in Victorian literature, and that that in itself was a daring and controversial subject. The modern reader, especially a woman, can not help but rejoice in how far we as women have progressed socially since that time, but the theme of unemployment, the rich getting richer and the laborers receiving an unequal share of the profits, etc. sounds like today's news. Even with its problems, this novel is head and shoulders above many others of its day.
Shirley is entirely different from Jane Eyre. Set during the Napoleonic wars, it focuses on a group of individuals, instead of one heroine like she did in Jane Eyre.
If you are a devoted Bronte fan like myself, I urge you to not let the first few chapters keep you from the gold that is not far behind. The first half of the book is rather trying. One begins to wonder why the novel was entitled Shirley since no such character appears until a few hundred pages. Instead, the novel focuses on a pair of rude and gossipy curates and the troubles of mill owner Robert Moore. It takes a while, but slowly all players in the novel are gradually introduced.
The character of Shirley Keedlar was in fact inspired by Charlotte Bronte's sister, Emily, author of Wuthering Heights. Shirley is a beautiful but fiery heiress who bewitches and impacts many lives throughout the novel. Bronte claimed that Shirley Keedlar lives the life that Emily might have lived had she been happy and healthy.
As I read the book, I attempted to piece together which characters were inspired by Bronte's real aquaintances. It is well known that the characters in Shirley were inspired from a small pool of people Charlotte Bronte socialized with. When her novel was released, many people recognized themselves in the novel, she was highly embarassed, but most of the people who inspired the characters found it all very amusing.
I was not wrong when I assumed that Caroline Helston, an orphan living with her uncle in a desolate parsonage has a little bit of Charlotte in her. Caroline secretly loved her cousin, Robert Moore, who unaware of her feelings, hurts her deeply by his aloofness.
The first part of the book was a little dull, but at one point in the novel it becomes impossible to put down. Bronte fans will see so much of our beloved novelist in Caroline that you won't be able to resist losing your heart to her.
When Charlotte Bronte began writing this novel, she found it incredibly difficult to write. However, the death of her brother and sisters left a void that only writing could fill. This becomes apparent in the heartfelt manner the last half of the book was written. Jane Eyre is most Bronte fans favorite novel, but Charlotte found Shirley superior to Jane Eyre. The latter is still my favorite, but anyone who is a fan of Jane Eyre must read this wonderful novel, which was written during such an emotional time in Charlotte Bronte's life.
