Summary

Jane Eyre (originally published as Jane Eyre: An Autobiography) is a novel by English writer Charlotte Brontë, published under the pen name "Currer Bell", on October 16, 1847. Jane Eyre is a bildungsroman which follows the experiences of its eponymous heroine, including her growth to adulthood and her love for Mr. Rochester, the brooding master of Thornfield Hall.

The novel revolutionized prose fiction by being the first to focus on its protagonist's moral and spiritual development through an intimate first-person narrative, where actions and events are colored by a psychological intensity. Charlotte Brontë has been called the "first historian of the private consciousness", and the literary ancestor of writers like Proust and Joyce.

The book contains elements of social criticism, with a strong sense of Christian morality at its core, and is considered by many to be ahead of its time because of Jane's individualistic character and how the novel approaches the topics of class, sexuality, religion, and feminism. It, along with Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, is one of the most famous romance novels of all time.

Buyer beware - pirated from LibriVox

I am the narrator of this book. I produced the book for LibriVox, which provides free public domain audiobooks. You can download this book for free here: librivox .org/jane-eyre-version-3-by-charlotte-bronte/ This is yet another company attempting to make money by pirating LibriVox audiobooks - made by volunteers intending that listeners will be able to download and listen for free. Jane Eyre is a wonderful classic by an amazing author - but please don't give these people your money.
