In the fall of 1847, three debut novels from Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell (Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë)—Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, and Agnes Grey—took the reading public by storm. The first of these was Jane Eyre, which met with instant critical and popular acclaim and would eventually help make the name Brontë synonymous with gothic romance and classic English literature.
The story of the strong-willed, intelligent, young Jane Eyre, escaping a horrid childhood and entering into an intense, but problematic romance with the gruff and enigmatic Mr. Rochester, has shocked and captivated readers for more than 160 years. It’s one of the most widely read and studied novels in the English language and is one you will never forget.
