Charlotte BrontÃ«'s moving masterpieceÂ âÂ the novel that has been teaching true strength of character for generationsÂ (The Guardian)
A novel of intense power and intrigue,Â Jane EyreÂ has dazzled generations of readers with its depiction of a woman's quest for freedom. Having grown up an orphan in the home of her cruel aunt and at a harsh charity school, Jane Eyre becomes an independent and spirited survivor-qualities that serve her well as governess at Thornfield Hall. But when she finds love with her sardonic employer, Rochester, the discovery of his terrible secret forces her to make a choice. Should she stay with him whatever the consequences or follow her convictions, even if it means leaving her beloved?Â This updated Penguin Classics edition features a new introduction byÂ BrontÃ« scholar and award-winning novelist Stevie Davies, as well as comprehensive notes, a chronology, further reading, and an appendix.
