Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre

by Charlotte Brointe

Jane Eyre follows the emotions and the experiences of its title character, including her growth to adulthood, and her love for Mr. Rochester, the master of fictitious Thornfield Hall. In its internalization of the action—the focus is on the gradual unfolding of Jane’s moral and spiritual sensibility and all events are colored by a heightened intensity that was previously the domain of poetry—Jane Eyre changed the writing of  fiction. Charlotte Brontë has been called the “first historian of the private consciousness” and the literary ancestor of writers like James Joyce and Marcel Proust. The novel
contains elements of social criticism, with a strong sense of morality at its core, but is nonetheless a novel many consider ahead of its time given the unique character of Jane and the novel’s exploration of the themes of classism, sexuality, religion, and proto-feminism. Published in September 2016.
