Orphaned into the household of her Aunt Reed at Gateshead, subject to the cruel regime at Lowood charity school, Jane Eyre nonetheless emerges unbroken in spirit and integrity. She takes up the post of governess at Thornfield, falls in love with Mr. Rochester, and discovers the impediment to their lawful marriage in a story that transcends melodrama to portray a woman’s passionate search for a wider and richer life than Victorian society traditionally allowed. With a heroine full of yearning, the dangerous secrets she encounters, and the choices she finally makes, Charlotte Brontë’s innovative and enduring romantic novel continues to engage and provoke readers.

Jane es una chica de una estricta ética y carácter marcado, mas dócil y de profundos sentimientos. Relata su amor y su espera por Rochester, así como las odiseas por la que tuvo que pasar, la fortuna y el hambre, el calor y el sufrimiento. La novela bien defiende los atributos de clásico de la literatura inglesa.

💡Learnt A Lot

Such an inspiring and intense story about resilience, determination and emancipation. Also loved the Gothic trace imbued in this novel publicated during the Victorian era.

“If all the world hated you, and believed you wicked, while your own conscience approved you, and absolved you from guilt, you would not be without friends.”

They had got me by this time into the apartment indicated by Mrs. Reed, and had thrust me upon a stool: my impulse was to rise from it like a spring; their two pair of hands arrested me instantly.
“If you don’t sit still, you must be tied down,” said Bessie. “Miss Abbot, lend me your garters; she would break mine directly.”
Miss Abbot turned to divest a stout leg of the necessary ligature. This preparation for bonds, and the additional ignominy it inferred, took a little of the excitement out of me.
“Don’t take them off,” I cried; “I will not stir.”
In guarantee whereof, I attached myself to my seat by my hands.
“Mind you don’t,” said Bessie; and when she had ascertained that I was really subsiding, she loosened her hold of me; then she and Miss Abbot stood with folded arms, looking darkly and doubtfully on my face, as incredulous of my sanity.
“She never did so before,” at last said Bessie, turning to the Abigail.
“But it was always in her,” was the reply.

К этому времени они ввели меня в комнату, указанную миссис Рид, и усадили на табурет; мне захотелось вскочить, как пружина, но их руки тут же схватили меня.
- Если ты не сидишь спокойно, значит, ты связан, - сказала Бесси. - Мисс Эббот, одолжите мне ваши подвязки, она сейчас же порвет мои.”
Мисс Эббот повернулась, чтобы снять с толстой ноги необходимую повязку. Эта подготовка к узам и дополнительный позор, который она вызвала, немного успокоили меня.
“Не снимайте их! - крикнул я. - я не шевельнусь.”
В качестве гарантии я крепко ухватился за сиденье руками.
- Не беспокойтесь, - сказала Бесси и, убедившись, что я действительно успокаиваюсь, ослабила хватку; потом они с Мисс Эббот стояли, скрестив руки на груди, мрачно и с сомнением глядя мне в лицо и не веря в мое здравомыслие.
- Она никогда не делала этого раньше, - наконец сказала Бесси, поворачиваясь к горничной.
“Но это всегда было в ней” - последовал ответ.

doubted I had taken a step which sank instead of raising me in the scale of social existence.
