This edition contains the original and unabridged text of Jane Eyre.
Jane Eyre is a novel by English writer Charlotte Bront . It was first published under the pen name "Currer Bell."
Jane Eyre follows the emotions and experiences of Jane, including her growth to adulthood, and her love for Mr. Rochester, the master of Thornfield Hall. In its internalisation of the action - the focus is on the gradual unfolding of Jane's moral and spiritual sensibility and all the events are coloured by a heightened intensity that was previously the domain of poetry - the novel revolutionised the art of fiction. Charlotte Bront has been called the 'first historian of the private consciousness' and the literary ancestor of writers like Joyce and 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 individualistic character of Jane and the novel's exploration of classism, sexuality, religion, and proto-feminism.
