“Jane Eyre” is a novel written by Charlotte Brontë, originally published in 1847. It is one of the most famous and enduring works of English literature. The novel follows the life of the protagonist, Jane Eyre, from her troubled childhood to her adulthood as a governess.

The story is a Bildungsroman, a genre that focuses on the moral and psychological growth of the main character. Jane Eyre, an orphan, faces numerous challenges and adversities throughout her life. She endures a difficult upbringing at the hands of her cruel aunt and is eventually sent to a harsh boarding school called Lowood. Despite these hardships, Jane demonstrates resilience, intelligence, and a strong sense of independence.

As Jane grows older, she secures a position as a governess at Thornfield Hall, where she becomes entangled in a complicated relationship with her employer, Mr. Rochester. The novel explores themes of love, morality, social class, and the struggle for self-determination. It also incorporates elements of Gothic literature, including eerie settings and mysterious occurrences.

“Jane Eyre” was revolutionary for its time, as it presented a strong, independent female protagonist who defied societal expectations. Brontë’s writing style is characterized by vivid descriptions, introspection, and emotional depth. The novel’s exploration of complex human emotions and the social constraints faced by women struck a chord with readers and continues to resonate with audiences today.

“Jane Eyre” remains a classic work of literature, appreciated for its rich character development, compelling narrative, and themes that transcend time. It has been adapted into numerous films, television series, and stage plays, further solidifying its status as a beloved and influential piece of literature.

    Bought it only because Penguin and Wordsworth editions were unavailable and I needed something to pass time in lockdown. Surprisingly this Oxford edition has extra notes and introduction making it more interesting. Additional points for large font.
