About the eBook

This carefully crafted ebook: "Jane Eyre + Wuthering Heights (2 Unabridged Classics)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Charlotte Brontë's most beloved novel describes the passionate love between the courageous orphan Jane Eyre and the brilliant, brooding, and domineering Rochester. The loneliness and cruelty of Jane's childhood strengthens her natural independence and spirit, which prove invaluable when she takes a position as a governess at Thornfield Hall. But after she falls in love with her sardonic employer, her discovery of his terrible secret forces her to make a heart-wrenching choice. Ever since its publication in 1847, Jane Eyre has enthralled every kind of reader, from the most critical and cultivated to the youngest and most unabashedly romantic. It lives as one of the great triumphs of storytelling and as a moving and unforgettable portrayal of a woman's quest for self-respect. Born into a poor family and raised by an oppressive aunt, young Jane Eyre becomes the governess at Thornfield Manor to escape the confines of her life. There her fiery independence clashes with the brooding and mysterious nature of her employer, Mr. Rochester. But what begins as outright loathing slowly evolves into a passionate romance. When a terrible secret from Rochester's past threatens to tear the two apart, Jane must make an impossible choice: Should she follow her heart or walk away and lose her love forever? Considered by many to be Charlotte Brontë's masterpiece, Jane Eyre chronicles the passionate love between the independent and strong-willed orphan Jane Eyre and the dark, impassioned Mr. Rochester. Having endured a lonely and cruel childhood, orphan Jane Eyre, who is reared in the home of her heartless aunt prior to attending a boarding school with an equally torturous regime, is strengthened by these experiences.

About the Author

Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855) was an acclaimed English novelist and poet, now best remembered for her seminal novel, 'Jane Eyre' (1847), an archetypal work of Victorian literature that melds gothic elements with a profound psychological acuity. Born on April 21, 1816, in Thornton, West Yorkshire, Charlotte was the third of six children born to Maria Branwell Brontë and Patrick Brontë, an Irish Anglican clergyman. Raised in the remote village of Haworth on the Yorkshire moors, Charlotte's upbringing was marked by the early loss of her mother and two elder siblings. These formative hardships forged a bond between the surviving Brontë children—Charlotte, Branwell, Emily, and Anne—who collectively found solace and escape in the creation of intricate imaginary worlds, which later evolved into their literary works. While 'Wuthering Heights' is sometimes misattributed to Charlotte, it was in fact penned by her sister Emily Brontë and is also considered a classic in its own right. Charlotte Brontë's literary style is characterized by its directness, emotional intensity, and keen social commentary, often criticizing the constraints imposed on women and the working classes in the 19th-century British society. Besides 'Jane Eyre', Brontë authored several other works, including 'Shirley' (1849) and 'Villette' (1853). Her novels are praised for their depth of characterization and innovative narrative techniques. Charlotte's influence on English literature is indelible, and her works continue to be celebrated for their courage in confronting contemporary social issues and advocating for women's autonomy. Brontë died on March 31, 1855, leaving behind a legacy of literary innovation and feminist thought that resonates to the present day.
