Many novels have traced "the history of a young woman's heart," but never better than the original. The favorite book of many readers and still one of the bestselling classic novels of all time, Jane Eyre continues to enthrall readers young and old. Charlotte Brontë was born in 1816 and died in 1855. Her most famous book was published in 1847 under the pseudonym Currer Bell, to hide Charlotte Brontë's gender in an era when female authors were taken less seriously. This text follows the 1848 edition, which incorporated the final changes approved by Charlotte Brontë and includes reviews written at the time of Jane Eyre's sensational first publication. The stunning cover design is a paper cut illustration by artist Petra Börner, whose clients include Elle, Harper's Bazaar, Louis Vuitton, Penguin, Random House, the Guardian, and the Independent.

Charlotte Bronte's impassioned novel is the love story of Jane Eyre, a plain yet spirited governess, and her arrogant, brooding Mr. Rochester. Published in 1847, under the pseudonym of Currer Bell, the book heralded a new kind of heroine--one whose virtuous integrity, keen intellect and tireless perseverance broke through class barriers to win equal stature with the man she loved. Hailed by William Makepeace Thackeray as "the masterwork of great genius," Jane Eyre is still regarded, over a century later, as one of the finest novels in English literature.
