Course: Charlotte Bronte - "Jane Eyre"

Course description:

This novel makes it understandable why the English still debate whether Charlotte Bronte or Jane Austen is the greatest English novelist.  Or is it Dickens?   Truly hard to put down, this is the story of a poor orphan girl whose extremely difficult childhood involves rejection, extreme loneliness, and poverty; her fight against her own faults, especially her temper; her sterling character and morality; her pure and unselfish love for an English nobleman.  There is definite romance in this novel, but very refined and morally upright.  Not just loved by girls; boys can really enjoy this too.

Textbook: Jane Eyre


Publisher's Description:

One of the finest novels ever written, Jane Eyre is also one of the most misunderstood masterpieces of world literature.Whereas most modern teaching of the text misreads or misinterprets Charlotte Brontë’s devout and profoundly ingrained Christian faith and intentions, this critical edition emphasizes the semi-autobiographical dimension of the novel, exposing feminist critiques of the work as being woefully awry and illustrating Brontë’s belief in the hard-earned, hard-learned blessings of sanctity and reverence.
