Publisher's Summary

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 Lowood ‘Orphans Asylum’. 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.
