About the book


“The Brontës’ gifted biographer provides us with another superlative Norton Critical Edition of Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel. For the classroom and for the general reader, there’s no better way to experience the context in which Jane Eyre was written, illuminating modern commentary, and the novel itself in an authoritative text.”

—Fred Kaplan, Queens College and The Graduate Center, City University of New York
