A novel of high romance and serious literature, Jane Eyre has enjoyed popular success and critical acclaim ever since its publication in 1847. The story of Jane''s development from neglected orphan to an equal partnership with the enigmatic Mr Rochester, via the cruel regime at Lowood school and a difficult independence as a governess, electrified a Victorian readership not just for its narrative power but for the bold critique it offered of English society. With characters that are as unforgettable as the story they enact, and with a passionate language that amazed the readers of the day, Jane Eyre ranks among the most pre-eminent English novels ever written.

About the Author

Charlotte Bronte, the third of six children, was born April 21, 1816, to the Reverend Patrick Bronte and Maria Branwell Bronte in Yorkshire, England. Along with her sisters, Emily and Anne, she produced some of the most impressive writings of the 19th century. The Brontes lived in a time when women used pseudonyms to conceal their female identity, hence Bronte's pseudonym, Currer Bell. Charlotte Bronte was only five when her mother died of cancer. In 1824, she and three of her sisters attended the Clergy Daughter's School in Cowan Bridge. The inspiration for the Lowood School in the classic Jane Eyre was formed by Bronte's experiences at the Clergy Daughter's School. Her two older sisters died of consumption because of the malnutrition and harsh treatment they suffered at the school. Charlotte and Emily Bronte returned home after the tragedy. The Bronte sisters fueled each other's creativity throughout their lives.

In 1846, Charlotte Bronte, with her sisters Emily and Anne published a thin volume titled Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. In the same year, Charlotte Bronte attempted to publish her novel, The Professor, but was rejected. One year later, she published Jane Eyre, which was instantly well received.
