Penguin Classics presents Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre, adapted for listening and available as a digital audiobook as part of the Penguin English Library series. This abridged version is skillfully read by actress Juliet Stevenson.
The more solitary, the more friendless, the more unsustained I am, the more I will respect myself
Passionate, poetic, and revolutionary, Jane Eyre is a novel of naked emotional power. The story of a defiant, fiercely intelligent woman who refuses to accept her appointed place in society - and instead finds love on her own terms - has become famous as one of the greatest romances ever written. But it is also a brooding Gothic mystery, a profound depiction of character, and a transformative work of the imagination.
