Charlotte Brontë's impassioned novel Jane Eyre is the love story of a plain yet spirited governess and her employer, the arrogant and brusque Mr. Rochester. Published in 1847, under the pseudonym Currer Bell, the book featured a new kind of heroine -- one who manages to thrive on her integrity, intellect, and fullness of heart in order to overcome isolation, adversity, and class barriers. Over a century later, Jane Eyre is still regarded as one of the classic novels of English literature.

I had meant to be so good, and to do so much at Lowood: to make so many friends, to earn respect, and win affection. Already I had made visible progress [...] now, here I lay again crushed and trodden on; and could I ever rise more?
