About Jane Eyre
Orphaned as a child, Jane Eyre musters up the courage to take a governess job at Thornfield Hall, where she meets the brooding Edward Rochester. Though she finds herself captivated by his kind spirit, she is distracted by the strange occurrences at the house. In this revolutionary piece of literature, eponymous heroine Jane maintains her integrity and inner strength as she grows into adulthood. Called the ‘first historian of the private consciousness’, author Charlotte Brontë explores classism, personal agency, and feminine spirituality in this Gothic mystery.
