Publisher's Summary

Primarily of the Bildungsroman genre, Jane Eyre follows the emotions and experiences of its eponymous heroine, including her growth to adulthood and her love for Mr. Rochester, the Byronic master of fictitious Thornfield Hall. In its internalization of the action - the focus is on the gradual unfolding of Jane's moral and spiritual sensibility, and all the events are colored by a heightened intensity that was previously the domain of poetry - Jane Eyre revolutionized the art of fiction. Charlotte Brontë has been called the "first historian of the private consciousness" and the literary ancestor of writers like Joyce and Proust. The novel contains elements of social criticism, with a strong sense of morality at its core, but is nonetheless a novel many consider ahead of its time given the individualistic character of Jane and the novel's exploration of classism, sexuality, religion, and proto-feminism.

Buyer beware!!

Any additional comments?

Listeners should be aware that this version has been taken from a free public domain recording that was never intended to be sold. It is available at Librivox . org for free. The publishers have taken it from that site and had no part in its production. I recorded it for LibriVox, not for Audible. There is a second, identical version for sale at Audible released through a different company. Both companies did this without my knowledge. Elizabeth Klett
