Jane Eyre (originally published as Jane Eyre: An Autobiography) is a novel by English writer Charlotte Brontë. It was published on 16 October 1847 by Smith, Elder & Co. of London, England, under the pen name "Currer Bell." The first American edition was released the following year by Harper & Brothers of New York. Primarily of the bildungsroman genre, Jane Eyre follows the emotions and experiences of its title character, including her growth to adulthood, and her love for Mr. Rochester, the byronic master of fictitious Thornfield Hall. In its internalisation of the action - the focus is on the gradual unfolding of Jane's moral and spiritual sensibility and all the events are coloured by a heightened intensity that was previously the domain of poetry - Jane Eyre revolutionised the art of fiction. Charlotte Brontë has been called the 'first historian of the private consciousness' and the literary ancestor of writers like Joyce and Proust. The novel contains elements of social criticism, with a strong sense of morality at its core, but is nonetheless a novel many consider ahead of its time given the individualistic character of Jane and the novel's exploration of classism, sexuality, religion, and proto-feminism.

Jane Eyre, the story of a young girl and her passage into adulthood, was an immediate commercial success at the time of its original publication in 1847. Its representation of the underside of domestic life and the hypocrisy behind religious enthusiasm drew both praise and bitter criticism, while Charlotte Brontë's striking expose of poor living conditions for children in charity schools as well as her poignant portrayal of the limitations faced by women who worked as governesses sparked great controversy and social debate. Jane Eyre, Brontë's best-known novel, remains an extraordinary coming-of-age narrative, and one of the great classics of literature.

The surprising hidden history behind Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre. Why did Charlotte Brontë go to such great lengths on the publication of her acclaimed, best-selling novel, Jane Eyre, to conceal its authorship from her family, close friends, and the press? In The Secret History of Jane Eyre, John Pfordresher tells the enthralling story of Brontë’s compulsion to write her masterpiece and why she then turned around and vehemently disavowed it. Few people know how quickly Brontë composed Jane Eyre. Nor do many know that she wrote it during a devastating and anxious period in her life. Thwarted in her passionate, secret, and forbidden love for a married man, she found herself living in a home suddenly imperiled by the fact that her father, a minister, the sole support of the family, was on the brink of blindness. After his hasty operation, as she nursed him in an isolated apartment kept dark to help him heal his eyes, Brontë began writing Jane Eyre, an invigorating romance that, despite her own fears and sorrows, gives voice to a powerfully rebellious and ultimately optimistic woman’s spirit. The Secret History of Jane Eyre expands our understanding of both Jane Eyre and the inner life of its notoriously private author. Pfordresher connects the people Brontë knew and the events she lived to the characters and story in the novel, and he explores how her fecund imagination used her inner life to shape one of the world’s most popular novels. By aligning his insights into Brontë’s life with the timeless characters, harrowing plot, and forbidden romance of Jane Eyre, Pfordresher reveals the remarkable parallels between one of literature’s most beloved heroines and her passionate creator, and arrives at a new understanding of Brontë’s brilliant, immersive genius.

D’où vient que nous revenions toujours à Jane Eyre avec le même attrait ? Avec le sentiment d’y trouver le romanesque porté à un degré de perfection ? Sans doute, le roman offre un concentré de ce que le genre peut offrir : l’histoire d’une formation, l’affrontement d’un être solitaire avec sa destinée, la passion, la peur, le mystère. Il répond à ce qu’attendait Stevenson de toute fiction digne de ce nom : la lecture en est absorbante et voluptueuse. Absorbante, son intrigue habilement machinée tient en haleine le lecteur au point que l’éditeur, dit-on, lorsqu’il reçut le manuscrit, ne put en interrompre la lecture. Voluptueuse aussi, cette « romance » qui noue inextricablement la passion et la peur. On dirait presque que Stevenson pense à Jane Eyre lorsqu’il évoque (dans l’essai consacré à l’art de la fiction) le souvenir envoûtant d’un livre qu’il a lu dans l’enfance : « il était question, nous dit-il, d’une haute et sombre demeure, la nuit, et de gens montant à tâtons un escalier seulement éclairé par une lumière venant de la porte ouverte d’une chambre ». Dès sa parution, en 1847, le roman a connu un immense succès. Même la reine Victoria le mentionne plusieurs fois dans ses notes de lectures L’excès est au coeur de la poétique du roman. Il opère une synthèse entre une forme de réalisme sombre, à la Dickens, le christianisme, son sens du mal, ses grands symboles, et le romantisme, héritier du courant gothique, cette « exploration littéraire des avenues de la mort » . Le personnage de Rochester est au carrefour de toutes ces influences : figure complexe de Satan, de Don Juan, de pécheur. La plus grande réussite de Charlotte Brontë est probablement d’avoir tiré d’elle-même, de cette soif qui « apprend l’eau », selon le mot d’Emily Dickinson, cette inoubliable figure de cavalier sombre, de maître hautain - ce parfait Adam.

Brimming with a lifelong love of classic literature and the tenderness of self-reflection, the book also reveals simple techniques for reading any work as a sacred text--from Virginia Woolf to Anne of Green Gables to baseball scorecards.
