Overview

Initially published under the pseudonym Currer Bell in 1847, Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre erupted onto the English literary scene, immediately winning the devotion of many of the world's most renowned writers, including William Makepeace Thackeray, who declared it a work "of great genius." Passionate, dramatic, and surprisingly modern, Jane Eyre endures as one of the world's most beloved novels. This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition includes a new Introduction by Diane Johnson, the National Book Awardnominated author of many novels, including Le Mariage and Le Divorce. The timeless story of Jane Eyre has arrived on Broadway as a spectacular new musical from an all-star production team, consisting of John Caird (Les Miserables, Nicholas Nickleby), who adapted and staged (with Scott Schwartz); composer Paul Gordon; designer John Napier (Cats, Les Miserables, Sunset Boulevard); costume designer Andreane Neofitou (Les Miserables, Miss Saigon); and lighting designers Jules Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer, six-time winners of the Tony Award.

Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books...I first read it at the age of eleven...I struggled through it a bit, but once I had finished I was very very glad that I had started. A truly charming tale, a must-read for everybody. I decided to write my review under this particular copy (the authoritative text and whatnot) but I never read that (hehehe) so I have no idea whether it's any good or not...in the actual text it includes many, many footnotes, mostly dealing with the translations and the words of the age that aren't used any more, and I found that particularly useful. I can, of course, assure you that the actual book is so good you'll just devour it.

This is my favorite book. I was first introduced to this book in college and I must say that it had been an experience. This book showed many distinct views such as the feminist view, christian ethics, fairytale and even Charlotte Bronte's own life. I rate this book 5 stars!
