But on their wedding morning, Jane discovers that his past holds a dark secret, and she flees, heartbroken...
Originally published under the pseudonym Currer Bell, Jane Eyre heralded a new kind of heroine -- one whose virtuous integrity, keen intellect and tireless perseverance broke through class barriers to win equal stature with the man she loved. Over a century after its publication in 1847, Jane Eyre is still regarded as one of the finest works in English literature. And, in this exclusive BBC production, with an arresting performance by Juliet Stevenson, Charlotte Bronte's exploration of how a woman comes to maturity in, the early 1800's comes marvelously and miraculously to life.
Charlotte Brontë, born in 1816, was an English novelist and poet, the eldest of the three Brontë sisters, and one of the nineteenth century's greatest novelists.
