Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

Is Heathcliff (1) a tortured romantic hero or (2) an evil vindictive villain?

Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope

This is the fourth book in Trollope's Barchester Chronicles series but you can read it as a stand-alone novel (which I did).  Basically an English romantic comedy that relentlessly pokes fun at both politicians and clergymen. Some of Trollope's comments could be inserted into a contemporary op ed column (or blog, even) and sound totally right on!  Satisfying fun for 19th century fiction lovers.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Inspired to re-read this old favorite before seeing the latest movie version, I found it to be more modern--and even feminist (despite the mad woman in the attic)--than I remembered.
