If you had to choose
Mr. Rochester, or Mr. Darcy?
Obviously Mr Darcy, come on now. Never locked a mentally ill woman in an attic, never exploited women for sex, and never attempted to trick the heroine into committing bigamy. Has a sense of humour (at least intermittently).
I mean, I love Jane Eyre as much as the next person who’s ever been a teenage girl, but there’s really no contest.
