Author Bio
Erica Jong
The daughter of Seymour and Edith (Mirsky) Mann, Erica Jong was educated at Barnard, receiving a B.A. in 1963, and Columbia, where she received an M.A. in 1965. Her 1973 bestseller, "Fear of Flying", created a sensation, and is one of the most influential and emblematic works associated with the sexual revolution.

Best known for her Gothic masterpiece JANE EYRE, Charlotte Bronte grew up in Yorkshire, England with her literary sisters, Anne and Emily, and her brother Branwell. Their childhood at the Haworth parsonage (where their father was the parson) was marked by imaginative play--stagings of dramas, stories, and other creative work, often using a set of wooden soldiers. In THE PROFESSOR, she draws on her painful experiences in Brussels, where she experienced unrequited love for her employer. A shy, solitary woman who longed for love, Bronte married late in life and died in childbirth.

Praise

"...the masterwork of a great genius." - William Makepeace Thackeray

"At the conclusion of 'Jane Eyre' we do not feel so much that we have read a book, as that we have parted from a most singular and eloquent woman, met by chance upon a Yorkshire hill, who has gone with us for a time and told us the whole of her life history." - Virginia Woolf

"Reader, if you have yet to discover the unique voice of Charlotte Brontë's 'Jane Eyre', you have a splendid delight awaiting you...Like 'Villette', 'Jane Eyre' is a story of hunger; unlike that more complex, and perhaps more aesthetically pure novel, it is a story of hunger satisfied...'Jane Eyre' is remarkable for its forthright declaration of its heroine's passions and appetites...She is ravenous with appetite. - Joyce Carol Oates

"So we open 'Jane Eyre'....The writer has us by the hand, forces us along her road, makes us see what she sees, never leaves us for a moment or allows us to forget her. At the end we are steeped through and through with the genius, the vehemence, the indignation of Charlotte Brontë....It is the red and fitful glow of the heart's fire which illumines her page." - Virginia Woolf

Salon
"The most immediate surprise of 'Jane Eyre' for today's readers is the directness, even bluntness, of the young heroine's voice. Here is no prissy little-girl sensibility, but a startlingly independent, even skeptical perspective....Another surprise of 'Jane Eyre' is the seemingly 'real--that is, non-romantic--nature of the lovers-to-be....Why does 'Jane Eyre' retain its appeal after so many decades, and so many intervening novels of virginal young heroines, Byronic moody mysterious elder men, and melodramatic disclosures? One answer is, simply, the quality of Jane's and Rochester's characters. They are believable. They are intelligent, yet emotional, superior beings who are human, even flawed; as the 19th-century reader would have discerned, they are models for us all." - Joyce Carol Oates 09/29/1997

"The suggestive use of language and the magical quality of her writing, which distinguishes Charlotte Brontë equally from her predecessor Jane Austen and her successor George Eliot, is one of the characteristic aspects of her work...Charlotte Brontë, no less than her sister Emily, was a splendidly original artist." - Q.D. Leavis
