Jane Eyre is a plain but intelligent orphan. The novel, which is partly autobiographical, explores her childhood, her education, her employment as a governess, and her love for her employer, Edward Rochester. Jane's love for Mr. Rochester is sorely tested when the mystery of the occupant of the attic is uncovered. Listeners will find this a novel full of social criticism and gothic elements.
Also included are two special features: an excerpt from The Life of Charlotte Bronte by Elizabeth Gaskell and A Brief Visit to the Bronte Parsonage by our narrator, Flo Gibson. Download and start listening now!
