    This was such a daunting task......(I know how much work goes into a crown of sonnets !) .....boy, oh boy, did you ever meet the mark !! This was a wonderful experience.......and the pay-off was reading your hard work, as if watching the movie or book unfold once again ! I loved what you did with it! Congratulations Craig!

    Hi Craig: Congratulations on your win. A great poetic portrayal of a great novel.

    Oh, Craig, this is wonderful... you have dug below the surface of both the novel and any film and captured the heart of one of my all time favourite heroines... yes, indeed the dropping of walls... symbolically the destruction of Thornfield is the end of the old and the birth of the new. So well done. LOOOOOVE IT! Oh, lol, congrats and thankyouthankyouthank you -- this feels like a gift. :D oxox Cyndi

    You nailed it !!! Last I heard, you were thinking of going for it.......well, .....shoot.....!! You shot me dead with this great crown.......not only one of my favorite all time movies/books (from when I was a teen and beyond)...... But as Andrea said, it is if watching the action unfold, the drama, the mystery, ....makes me wish I'd gone this route. Outstanding, Craig!! Ps.....I've seen so many versions of this one....seems I just experienced one more!!

    just saw your message down here. I don't like to read the contemporary ones as much. When they are written by a free verse writer, they are often difficult for me to understand as well as being unmetered because I find a lot of free verse poets are so obscure in the language they use. why do they have to bring that into the sonnets? It's still a free verse inside the framework of 14 lines. But i have to say, I really enjoyed the plainspoken ones that I read of Cyndi's tributes to her friends.

    You've done an outstanding job with this piece Craig, xxx

    Craig, I have to say, you have chosen your movie VERY well because that story is so full of drama and emotion. with your impeccable beat, you would be the one to win, in my estimation. I am not even trying this one. when I do my own crown sonnet it will be on my own terms and if I do a story, it will be a story I make up. I do not like long poetry, especially if it is about a topic I am simply summing up. However, for what this contest required, I doubt you can be beat, my friend..

    Thank you Andrea--LOL--I was trying to avoid beat and meter because Cyndi does not want it in this crown. You know what's weird (and I know you do) For me, I dream in meter almost so to write out of meter for me is like trying to sing off key on purpose and it's very difficult---like you with rhyme and free verse!!LOL

    :) You got all the elements of the story in this crown. I LOVE the story of Jane Eyre...Have read the book..twice...and see the BBC version of it COUNTLESS times...Timothy Dalton and Mr Rochester amazes me. Your crown has got the highlights of the story and the longings of Jane's heart so beautifully....What passion!!! "My cherished preserver...Goodnight!" My favorite scene after she saves him from the fire....Beautiful, Craig...Lovely CROWN
