Immerse in an enthralling story you will never forget
Charlotte Bronte (1816-1855) was an English novelist and poet. Despite her woman status and lack of financial means, she managed to publish her poems - and those of her sisters - under male names. Charlotte Bronte has been called the "first historian of the private consciousness" and is considered today as one of the English language's most accomplished novelists.
Jane Eyre was first published in 1847 under the pen name "Currer Bell" - as "Jane Eyre: An Autobiography."
Orphaned into the household of her Aunt Reed at Gateshead, subject to the cruel regime at Lowood charity school, Jane Eyre nonetheless emerges unbroken in spirit and integrity. She takes up the post of governess at Thornfield, falls in love with Mr. Rochester, and discovers the impediment to their lawful marriage in a story that transcends melodrama to portray a woman's passionate search for a wider and richer life than Victorian society traditionally allowed.
