'Surprisingly radical.' - The Atlantic

'A miniaturist of the soul, Bront captured shades of emotion with a psychological subtlety that still feels exquisitely modern.' - The New York Times

Passionate, poetic and revolutionary, Jane Eyre is a novel of naked emotional power. Its 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.

Charlotte Bront 's most beloved novel describes the passionate love between the courageous orphan Jane Eyre and the brilliant, brooding, and domineering Rochester. The loneliness and cruelty of Jane's childhood strengthens her natural independence and spirit, which prove invaluable when she takes a position as a governess at Thornfield Hall. But after she falls in love with her sardonic employer, her discovery of his terrible secret forces her to make a heart-wrenching choice.

Ever since its publication in 1847, Jane Eyre has enthralled every kind of reader, from the most critical and cultivated to the youngest and most Read More chevron_right

I first read Jane Eyre in high school. as I think most readers of the book have. I was struck by the passion of the lead character, her path to wisdom self discovery and finally, love. This of course is not a perfect novel, very few books are but it is well worth your time. I wouldn't look to analyze every character or themes of this book though, reading Jane Eyre should be a pleasure, not a duty. Open yourself up to Charlotte Bronte's story of Jane Eyre and you'll be completely entertained .
