Villette This novel is based on the author's personal experience as a teacher in Brussels. It is a moving tale of repressed feelings and subjection to cruel circumstance and position, borne with heroic fortitude.
Charlotte Brontë & F.H. Townsend In Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë creates one of the greatest literary heroines of all time. Orphaned as a girl and raised by an abusive aunt, Jane grows into a woman with a deep sense of morality and the courage to resist injustice. As Brontë's novel follows her path to adulthood, Jane struggles with poverty, the restraints of social conventions, and a forbidden romance with her employer Mr. Rochester. Brontë dives into a subject matter darker and more serious than many of her contemporaries, including mental and physical abuse, financial ruin, insanity, and loveless marriages. Yet through it all, Jane remains steadfast, clinging to a morality defined by her character rather than society's mores.
Charlotte Brontë Jane Eyre is a novel by English writer Charlotte Brontë. It was published on 16 October 1847 by Smith, Elder & Co. of London, England, under the pen name "Currer Bell." The first American edition was released the following year by Harper & Brothers of New York.

Charlotte Brontë The Professor is Charlotte Brontes first novel, in which she audaciously inhabits the voice and consciousness of a man, William Crimsworth. Like Jane Eyre he is parentless; like Lucy Snowe in Villette he leaves the certainties of England to forge a life in Brussels. But as a man, William has freedom of action, and as a writer Bronte is correspondingly liberated, exploring the relationship between power and sexual desire. William's first person narration reveals his attraction to the dominating directress of the girls' school where he teaches, played out in the school's 'secret garden'. Balanced against this is his more temperate relationship with one of his pupils, Frances Henri, in which mastery and submission interplay.

Charlotte Brontë The Shirley of the title is a woman of independent means; her friend Caroline is not. Both struggle with what a woman's role is and can be. Their male counterparts - Louis, the powerless tutor, and Robert, his cloth-manufacturing brother - also stand at odds to society's expectations. The novel is set in a period of social and political ferment, featuring class disenfranchisement, the drama of Luddite machine-breaking, and the divisive effects of the Napoleonic Wars.

Charlotte Brontë Jane Eyre /ˈɛər/ (originally published as Jane Eyre: An Autobiography) is a novel by English writer Charlotte Brontë. It was published on 16 October 1847 by Smith, Elder & Co. of London, England, under the pen name "Currer Bell." The first American edition was released the following year by Harper & Brothers of New York.
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 novel contains elements of social criticism, with a strong sense of morality at its core, but is nonetheless a novel many consider ahead of its time given the individualistic character of Jane and the novel's exploration of classism, sexuality, religion, and proto-feminism.

Charlotte Brontë The Novel
"How well I remember the delight, and wonder, and pleasure with which I read Jane Eyre, sent to me by an author whose name and sex were then unknown to me; the strange fascinations of the book; and how my own work pressing upon me, I could not, having taken the volumes up, lay them down until they were read through." — W. M. Thackeray.
At first we see Jane Eyre as an orphan, dependent upon a rich aunt by marriage, and subject to the bad treatment of a poor ill-favoured relation. Her temper is soured by the oppression of grown-up people and the tyranny of children; and the first act ends at a half-charity school for orphans, whither she is sent as a punishment. The second part exhibits Jane as governess to the protégé of a Mr. Rochester,—a hard, peculiar, and to the reader a rather disagreeable person of forty, in whom there is much talk and some little mystery. The mystery, however, is explained, when, after a course of hardly "proper" conduct between a single man and a maiden in her teens, the marriage between Jane and Mr. Rochester is stopped by the "lawful cause and impediment" of another wife being in the way…
Charlotte Brontë was born in the old parsonage at Thornton, in the West Riding of Yorkshire, on the 21st of April 1816. She was the daughter of a clergyman, who, in 1820, moved with his family to Haworth. A cheap school for clergymen's daughters came under Mr. Brontë's notice, and in 1824 Maria, Elizabeth, Emily, and Charlotte, Anne being too young, find themselves at the Cowan Bridge Institution, known to all readers of Jane Eyre as Lowood. In 1841, Charlotte persuaded her aunt to disburse a hundred pounds or so of her savings, and she and Emily started for Brussels, which place was selected because Mary Taylor was at school in the neighbourhood. At Madame Héger's pensionnat in the Rue d'Isabelle, Brussels, Charlotte and Emily stayed from February to October 1842. In 1845 literary life in Haworth commenced in earnest. It was while attending her father at Manchester, whither he had gone to consult an oculist and to undergo an operation, that Charlotte Brontë began Jane Eyre. It was published in October 1847. In 1853 Villette was published, the crowning glory of Charlotte Brontë's literary life. The following year she married, and in 1855 she died.
"Of all the novels we have read for years, this is the most striking, and, we may add, the most interesting. Its style, as well as its characters, are unhackneyed, perfectly fresh, and life-like. It is thoroughly English."—Economist.
"A book of decided power. The thoughts are true, sound, and original; and the style is resolute, straightforward, and to the purpose. The object; and moral of the work are excellent."—Examiner.
"Almost all that we require in a novelist the writer has: perception of character and power of delineating it, picturesqueness, passion, and knowledge of life. Reality—deep, significant reality—is the characteristic of this book."—Fraser's Magazine.
"The most extraordinary production that has issued from the press for years. We know no author who possesses such power as is exhibited in these: three volumes. From the first page to the last it is stamped with vitality."—Weekly Chronicle.
