Jane Eyre is an autobiographical romance novel written by Charlotte Brontë and originally published in 1847 under the pseudonym Currer Bell. Since its publication it achieved great fame and good reviews and today it is considered one of the best romantic novels and English literature.

The novel is set somewhere in the north of England, late in the reign of George III (1760–1820), and is told in the first person from the perspective of the main character, Jane Eyre.

Jane Eyre is a strong, independent woman who has spent many years in boarding school after being orphaned as a baby. She is able to overcome adversity and ends up being the governess of a farm. Jane agrees to marry her boss, Mr. Rochester, but on the day of the wedding she discovers that he is already married and her mentally challenged wife is locked up in the house, prompting her to run away.

The book goes through five distinct stages: Jane's childhood at Gateshead Hall, her education at Lowood School, her time as a governess at Thornfield Hall, her time at Moor House, and ultimately her meeting and marriage to her beloved Rochester.

The novel is considered one of the first examples of feminist literature. Many male critics considered it revolutionary. Through the voice of the protagonist of the novel, she denounced the oppression suffered by women in domestic life. Charlotte Brontë, in real life, also refused to marry for money or convenience. The novel offers perspectives on a number of important social issues and ideas, many of which are critical of the status quo.
