In the early 1800s, Jane Eyre's parents die - leaving young Jane to be looked after by her uncle and aunt; but after the death of her uncle, her aunt and cousins make her life truly miserable. Surely, being sent away to school could only improve things?
Charlotte BrÅ‘nte’s classic 1847 novel follows the life of Jane Eyre from turbulent childhood into the heartaches of adulthood, and is reminiscent of the author's own experiences. It was written at the dawn of feminism, when female authors were rare, and books about the lives of women even rarer.
This graphic novel adaptation presents the classic story through beautiful hand-painted artwork by the English artist John M. Burns, giving you a truly wonderful and fulfilling reading experience that you'll want to return to again and again.
