Jane Eyre

by Charlotte Bronte ; introd. by William Peden

Initially published under the pseudonym Currer Bell in 1847, Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre erupted onto the English literary scene, immediately winning the devotion of many of the world's most renowned writers, including William Makepeace Thackeray, who declared it a work "of great genius." Widely regarded as a revolutionary novel, Bronte's masterpiece introduced the world to a radical new type of heroine, one whose defiant virtue and moral courage departed sharply from the more acquiescent and malleable female characters of the day. Passionate, dramatic, and surprisingly modern, "Jane Eyre" endures as one of the world's most beloved novels. "At the end we are steeped through and through with the genius, the vehemence, the indignation of Charlotte Bronte."
