"This is a splendid edition with extremely helpful notes - useful to faculty and students alike - and an "Introduction" which informs without overwhelming."--Preston Browning, University of Illinois at Chicago
In this new edition, literature professor Sally Shuttleworth explores the power of a narrative that questions the rights of women and the nature of madness, martyrdom, and rebellion in a story whose emotional charge is as strong today as it was more than 150 years ago.
Jane Eyre (1847) has enjoyed huge popularity since first publication, and its success owes much to its exceptional emotional power. Jane Eyre, a penniless orphan, is engaged as governess at Thornfield Hall by the mysterious Mr Rochester. Her integrity and independence are tested to the limit as their love for each other grows, and the secrets of Mr Rochester's past are revealed. A brilliant new edition of this flagship of Victorian fiction, this book includes a new introduction and revised notes from one of the foremost Brontë scholars. This text is based on the definitive Clarendon edition, based on the original editions of Brontë's great work.
