“I would always rather be happy than dignified.” Jane Eyre was Charlotte Brontë’s first published novel, that soon earned its place amongst the greatest works of literary genius. The plain-looking Jane Eyre begins life as a lonely orphan in the household of her hateful aunt. Despite the oppression she endures at home, Jane manages to emerge with her spirit and integrity unbroken. As a governess at Thornfield Hall, she finds herself falling in love with the dark and impassioned Mr. Rochester. However, an explosive secret tears apart their relationship, forcing Jane to face poverty and isolation once again. Startlingly modern, Jane Eyre transcends all notions of melodrama to portray a woman’s search for meaning in life.
