Perhaps one of the most well-known books in the world, Jane Eyre follows the life of its eponymous orphaned protagonist. From her early life Jane is strong-willed, passionate and kind but comes up against a lot of struggles. She lives with her aunt and uncle during early childhood, where she suffers under her aunt’s strict discipline before transferring to Lowood Institution. The story follows her life – through heartbreaks and joys, exploring women’s rights, social criticism, madness and morality. Charlotte Brontė created a powerful and emotionally evocative novel that has lost none of its power since its publication over 150 years ago.

Jane Eyre tells of a background coming from an unloved almost reviled childhood fighting the teachings of tradition to gain independance and fighting the natural desires of love. Torn between love and her moral upbringing that she fought so hard to defy. Read full review

This book included both Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre, so I'll review each separately. Jane Eyre: I loved this book! I thought it was highly romantic, and I was glad things got resolved. Wuthering Heights: I read this after and was disappointed because I did not like it as much. Read full review

About the author (2020)

Charlotte Brontė (1816–55) was an English novelist and poet, and the eldest of the world-famous Brontė sisters whose novels are considered classics in nineteenth century fiction. Their works still intrigue fans today, more than 150 years after they were first published. Charlotte left school at age 14 to tutor her sisters, Emily and Anne, and the sisters later turned to writing when they were unsuccessful in opening a school. Charlotte’s first novel The Professor (1857) was at first rejected, but her second novel Jane Eyre was published in 1847 to great success. By 1848 the sisters had renounced their pseudonyms and became celebrated in literary circles for their gripping novels.
