One of the most passionate novels of its time, Jane Eyre derives its strength from the honesty and directness of its heroine. The first person narrative involves us right from the start, letting us into Jane’s thoughts as she matures from rebellious child to passionate woman. Notice how social snobbery is condemned—particularly in the character of Aunt Reed and the conditions at the Lowood Institution for poor and orphaned girls. Listen how the writer builds her climaxes—most notably in Rochester’s famous proposal scene. Notice, also, how Jane rises above her unhappy beginnings to gain Rochester’s love. And, finally, revel in the story’s ending—one of the most moving conclusions to a love story ever written.

About the Author

Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855) grew up in the isolated parsonage at Haworth, Yorkshire, where her father was curate. She and her sisters Emily and Anne thrived in fantasy worlds that drew on their voracious reading of Shakespeare, romantic, and gothic fiction. Charlotte was employed as a teacher and a governess before she began writing with her sisters. The Professor, her first novel, was rejected for publication until 1857, although Jane Eyre, published in 1847 under a pseudonym, achieved great success.
