Jane Eyre

by Charlotte Brontë

Transmuted by the rare Brontë imagination, the romance of Jane and Rochester takes on a strange and unforgettable atmosphere that lifes it above the level of mere melodrama.  But Charlotte Brontë intended more.  She portrayed the refusal of a spritied and intelligent woman to accept her appointed place in society with unusual frankness and with a passionate sense of the dignity and needs of her sex. 

book, fiction
