Publisher's Summary

Initially published under the pseudonym Currer Bell in 1847, Charlotte Brontë'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, Brontë'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. This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition includes newly written explanatory notes.


What the Critics Say

"At the end we are steeped through and through with the genius, the vehemence, the indignation of Charlotte Bronte." (Virginia Woolf)

Better then Any Movie!

I found out that my wife was reading this book and it sounded like something that would help me pass the long miles. I drive truck for a living so an audio book really makes the day go by faster. I was not disappointed in the storyline at all. The main plot of this book is a good one and will keep the attention of almost any reader. After my wife and I had both finished the book we rented the movie. What a let down! If I hadn’t read the book I would have had no clue what was going on. So much was lacking from the movie that my wife and I found ourselves completely lost. In conclusion, Watch the movie if you’re of a mind too but for sure read the book!
