Jane Eyre by Prof. Harold Bloom

Written by Charlotte Bronte and published in 1847, Jane Eyre is the story of a governess who, despite her plainness, catches the eye of her employer, the mysterious Edward Rochester. The novel is considered a staple among works of Gothic and Victorian literature. This new Bloom's Guides reference offers sharp insights into the themes and motifs that dominate this brooding masterpiece, and it is sure to become a welcome addition to any home or school library.


This is the type of novel that is open to interpretation and students will gain a better understanding from reading all of the discussion. Doctorow is quoted in several chapters. Students looking for criticism and analysis of literary works will find it easy to use this title rather than searching endlessly for the Journals in which these articles may have originally appeared. A valuable resource for literature collections.
