Charlotte Brontë: Jane Eyre

The Brontë sisters really know how to cook up a definitive love story, and Jane Eyre is a prime example. Regarded as an important piece in English literature, Jane Eyre’s dark undertones have also made it a prototype in Gothic fiction. The novel tells the story of the titular character, Jane, as she escapes from her abusive situation at Lowood, and then goes on to become a much-adorned governess at Thornfield Hall.
