Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë is our January Classic of the Month! And I made a poster for this. Woohoo!
I read the novel and watched the 2011 adaptation, both of which I enjoyed quite a bit!
Original Title: Jane Eyre: An Autobiography
Written Under: Currer Bell
Published : 16 October 1847 by Smith, Elder & Co. of London, England
Original Publication Format: Three volumes, comprising chapters 1 to 15, 16 to 26, and 27 to 38
"Orphaned into the household of her Aunt Reed at Gateshead, subject to the cruel regime at Lowood charity school, Jane Eyre nonetheless emerges unbroken in spirit and integrity.
She takes up the post of governess at Thornfield, falls in love with Mr. Rochester, and discovers the impediment to their lawful marriage in a story that transcends melodrama to portray a woman's passionate search for a wider and richer life than Victorian society traditionally allowed.
With a heroine full of yearning, the dangerous secrets she encounters, and the choices she finally makes, Charlotte Bronte's innovative and enduring romantic novel continues to engage and provoke readers."
I started this new feature and would choose a classic for the month. So, for January I chose a classic novel that starts with the letter 'J'. Look out for the February Classic of the Month! :)
