The Illustrated Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
The Illustrated Jane Eyre

english_springtime, January 5, 2010

Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre is by far the best book I've ever read; as a literature major I've read my fair share of books! Bronte mixes Gothic and Romantic themes with such skill and energy that the reader is left breathless at every turn. Though Bronte professes her main character to be plain, the narrative and depth of characters are anything but. Jane and Rochester's relationship is complex and alluring, and very explosive for a Victorian era novel. This illustrated edition brings the novel to life with all of the dark, gothic magic that lurks inside the text. A must read for any literature enthusiast!
