Overview

A new edition of one of Penguin’s top ten Classics-the novel that has been “teaching true strength of character for generations”
(The Guardian)

A novel of intense power and intrigue, Jane Eyre has dazzled generations of readers with its depiction of a woman’s quest for freedom. This updated edition features a new introduction discussing the novel’s political and magical dimensions.

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?

Praise

I go back to [Jane Eyre] so often and it was one of the first books that made me think, ‘This is me, in some deep way.’ (Suzanne Vega)
