I read the Gothic novel Jane Eyre for many reasons, but chief among them is the prose. Charlotte crafted beautiful sentences. She took great care to use exactly the right words for her purposes. Most of the prose used by early Victorians is beautiful, but Charlotte's is better than most.

Couldn't agree more it's almost perfection. When you read you can picture everything and feel the words, it makes some other books look lazy.
