Jane Eyre / Charlotte Brontë ; ed. with an introd. Margaret Smith. - Oxford, New York : Oxford University Press, 1989. - XXXIV, 473, [5] s. ; 19 cm.
(The World's Classics)
Orphaned Jane Eyre grows up in the home of her heartless aunt and later attends a charity school with a harsh regime, enduring loneliness and cruelty. This troubled childhood strengthens Jane's natural independence and spirit - which prove necessary when she finds a position as governess at Thornfield Hall. However, when she finds love with her sardonic employer, Rochester, the discovery of his terrible secret forces her to make a choice. Should she stay with him and live with the consequences, or follow her convictions, even if it means leaving the man she loves? A novel of intense power and intrigue, Jane Eyre (1847) dazzled and shocked readers with its passionate depiction of a woman's search for equality and freedom.

The Illustrated Brontës of Haworth is a celebration of the lives of one of the most famous families in English literature, Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë, who lived in Haworth in Yorkshire during the first half of the nineteenth century. Brian Wilks has made a skillful selection from the prose and poetry of all the sisters to give a vivid picture of their lives. Their writings closely reflect the sisters' own experiences: for example, we see how Charlotte transformed her own ordeal at Cowan Bridge School into her account of Lowood in Jane Eyre, and how Emily used the dramatic moorland landscape around Haworth to provide the symbolically charged backdrop to the powerful emotions at play in Wuthering Heights. For those new to the Brontës this book is a fascinating introduction to the family and their writings, and Bronte lovers will find all their favorite pieces are included, with a fascinating commentary which sets the works in context. Beautifully illustrated with paintings, drawings and memorabilia of Haworth and photographs of the surrounding landscape. The Illustrated Brontës of Haworth is a superb collection of some of the most memorable prose in English language.
