Thank God, someone wrote a rebuttal to the “Rochester is a big ol’ creep” article I linked to in my last post… aptly titled "Why Mr. Rochester Is Not A Creep."  That’s right, Brit Lit haters, he has to be a creep to serve the plot! ;)

Edward Fairfax Rochester is one of the most intriguing and complex characters in literary history. Powerful and passionate, he’s the Alpha Male, the stereotypical Mills & Boon hero - rich, arrogant, dominating yet with such a puppy-like love for the One Woman. He’s an archetypal Lost Soul, a Bad Boy with a Heart of Gold, redeemed through love.

Preach it, sister.
