Penguin Classics presents Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre, adapted for audio and available as a digital download as part of the Penguin English Library series. Read by the actress Juliet Stevenson.
'The more solitary, the more friendless, the more unsustained I am, the more I will respect myself'
Passionate, poetic and revolutionary, Jane Eyre is a novel of naked emotional power. Its story of a defiant, fiercely intelligent woman who refuses to accept her appointed place in society - and instead finds love on her own terms - has become famous as one of the greatest romances ever written, but it is also a brooding Gothic mystery, a profound depiction of character and a transformative work of the imagination.
Part of a series of vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives. Affordable, collectable, quality productions - perfect for on-the-go listening.
