Of course. I went to a study day at Roehampton University about writing & food where someone gave a lecture on food in Jane Eyre - apparently Jane's a really hearty eater, and fetches up a midnight picnic from downstairs at one point. (Don't think I've got the book, or I'd give the reference.) But I can't help thinking it's not sensible to marry Rochester ... (And I don't think Jo shd have married Laurie - he's a bit of a drifter, and anyway, she didn't love him enough [sorry, romantic at heart].)
