«Jane Eyre. An Autobiography» is a novel by English writer Charlotte Brontë.
Primarily of the bildungsroman genre, Jane Eyre follows the emotions and experiences of its eponymous character, including her growth to adulthood, and her love for Mr. Rochester, the byronic master of fictitious Thornfield Hall. In its internalisation of the action – the focus is on the gradual unfolding of Jane’s moral and spiritual sensibility and all the events are coloured by a heightened intensity that was previously the domain of poetry – the novel revolutionised the art of fiction. Charlotte Brontë has been called the ‘first historian of the private consciousness’ and the literary ancestor of writers like Joyce and Proust.
The ebook edition of «Jane Eyre» from Animedia Company is magnificently and colorfully illustrated by C. E. Brock, J. R. Skelton, F. H. Townsend.
