About The Book
Published on 16 October 1847, Charlotte BrontÃ«â€™s Jane Eyre was originally titled Jane Eyre: An Autobiography. The novel earned its author the distinction of being â€˜the first historian of the private consciousnessâ€™.
Jane Eyre, an orphan, living with her cruel aunt is punished for bullying her cousin and imprisoned in a â€˜red roomâ€™. This is the same room where Janeâ€™s uncle had died. Locked in, a young Jane is haunted by her uncleâ€™s screams. Memories of an oppressive upbringing follow her like a shadow even at Lowood Charity School where she finds herself at the mercy of an abusive headmaster.
As a governess at Thornfield Hall, Jane falls in love with her mysterious Byronic employer, Edward Rochester. Soon, she discovers a bitter truth about him and his â€˜madâ€™ wife Bertha Mason.
After a series of crests and troughs when Jane is ready to embark on yet another unpredictable journey, she is compelled to return to the man she had once abandoned.
