Jane Eyre is a novel that was written by English author Charlotte Bronte and published on October 16th, 1847. Jane Eyre's back cover synopsis reads as follows:
"Initially pbulished 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. This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition includes newly written explanatory notes."
Jane Eyre has been adapted into film, television and theater, and was ranked number 10 in the BBC's survey "The Big Read."
