Charlotte Bronte’s masterpiece provides an exciting, gothic plot – featuring madness, secrets, disguises, arson, a large cast of strong willed characters and Rochester—a passionate, tormented hero. But it is also a brilliantly insightful and realistic dramatization of a strong female character’s feelings. Jane overcomes oppression and hardship from her childhood onward to develop strength and independence as she grows to into a compassionate and confident woman.
