About this item

«¿Por qué siempre tenía que sufrir yo? ¿Estar siempre vigilada, siempre acusada y condenada sin remisión?»


Jane es una niña huérfana que se ha educado en un orfanato miserable. Sin embargo, pese a todas las adversidades que la vida ha dispuesto en su camino, su inteligencia y su afán por aprender consiguen apartarla del mundo de su gris infancia, y logra establecerse como institutriz. Mientras trata de cuidar y educar a la joven Adèle, Jane empezará a trabar una estrecha relación con Edward Rochester, el padre de la pupila. Pero su amor se verá enturbiado al descubrir que su mujer, demente, vive todavía encerrada en una habitación de la casa.

La crítica literaria y biógrafa Stevie Davies firma la reveladora introducción que precede a la novela, espléndidamente traducida por el escritor Toni Hill. Se ofrece así la perspectiva histórica y literaria de una obra que supuso todo un fenómeno en su época, además de un escándalo y una revolución en los círculos culturales.

William Makepeace Thackeray dijo...

«La obra maestra de un gran genio.»




ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Charlotte Brontë's moving masterpiece ? the novel that has been "teaching true strength of character for generations" (The Guardian)

A novel of intense power and intrigue, Jane Eyre has dazzled generations of readers with its depiction of a woman's quest for freedom. Having grown up an orphan in the home of her cruel aunt and at a harsh charity school, Jane Eyre becomes an independent and spirited survivor-qualities that serve her well as governess at Thornfield Hall. But 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 whatever the consequences or follow her convictions, even if it means leaving her beloved? This updated Penguin Classics edition features a new introduction by Brontë scholar and award-winning novelist Stevie Davies, as well as comprehensive notes, a chronology, further reading, and an appendix.
