moreJane Eyre by English writer Charlotte Brontë was first published in 1847 under the name 'Currer Bell'. The book follows the emotions and experiences of its title character, including her growth to adulthood, and her love for Mr. Rochester, the master of Thornfield Hall. The novel is a first-person narrative from the perspective of the title character, set somewhere in the north of England, late in the reign of George III. It goes through five distinct Jane's childhood at Gateshead Hall, where she is emotionally and physically abused by her aunt and cousins; her education at Lowood School, where she gains friends and role models; her time as governess at Thornfield Hall, where she falls in love with her employer, Edward Fairfax Rochester; her time in the Moor House, during which her clergyman cousin, St. John Rivers, proposes to her; and ultimately her reunion with, and marriage to, Rochester.
