Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Posted on: 09/14/2010


Another masterpiece by one of the Bronte sisters! Much of the subject matter in this novel, a religious all girls schools, her friend dying from TB and being a governess came from Charlotte’s real life. She and her sisters were sent to a boarding school where two of her sisters did die from tuberculosis. Charlotte also spend time a governess. The sister’s originally published under male pseudonyms as the times were quite different then. The themes of their writing is often about the Victorian class system and different treatment of men and woman. These sister’s were brilliant and successful. A novel that must be read! Enjoy!
