The Literary Classics Collection pulls together a constellation of influences—biographical, historical, and literary—to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works.Jane Eyre, the story of a young girl and her passage into adulthood, was an immediate commercial success at the time of its original publication in 1847. Its representation of the underside of domestic life and the hypocrisy behind religious enthusiasm drew both praise and bitter criticism, while Charlotte Brontë's striking expose of poor living conditions for children in charity schools as well as her poignant portrayal of the limitations faced by women who worked as governesses sparked great controversy and social debate. Jane Eyre, Brontë's best-known novel, remains an extraordinary coming-of-age narrative, and one of the great classics of literature.

4.0 The Saintly St. John Rivers:"Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Brontë

The novel opens with a recall of the emotional deprivation the 8-year-old Jane receives daily at the hands of h...

4.0 Attractive romance-manga retelling
Jane Eyre is super well-suited to a shoujo manga format - very soapy! I liked the cute art, though backgrounds were sometimes a little sparse. The plot moves pretty quickly to cover childhood through maturity, and parts are inevitably summarized, but key events got good coverage, and the central rom...

Przez całą powieść oczekiwałam czegoś dziwnego. W końcu losy Jane Eyre miały być dziwne jak mówi tytuł. Ale w powieści nie znajdziemy nic dziwnego. Za to możemy odnaleźć przepiękną historię pełną łez, uśmiechu... pełną przygód. Ta historia pozostanie z nami do końca życia, bo nie sposób o niej zapom...

4.0 Manga Classics: Jane Eyre
I was surprised by this combination: english classic literature with japanese popular culture in the form of manga comics. It was strange to read backwards (the correct way to read manga is explained in the book) but I got used to it. I read Pride and Prejudice and Emma by Jane Austen and Jane Eyre...
