Jane Eyre is one of English literature’s most influential feminist novels. Written by Charlotte Bronte under the pen-name Currer Bell, it is one of the first books in the English language to explore in great depth the emotions of a strong female character.
Jane Eyre does not have the benefit of a happy and wealthy upbringing. Orphaned at the age of ten and suffering at the hands of both foster parents and school, she ends up becoming the governess of Thornfield Hall. Here she has a glimpse of happiness when she falls in love with the owner of the house, Mr Rochester. But the path to marriage is not an easy one for a woman of Jane’s status and moral principle.
Jane Eyre is a novel of strong morality, but also ahead of its time in terms of social criticism, feminism and sexuality.
