Charlotte Bronte lived from 1816 to 1855. In 1824 she was sent away to school with her four sisters and they were treated so badly that their father brought them home to Haworth in Yorkshire. The elder two sisters died within a few days and Charlotte and her sisters Emily and Anne were brought up in the isolated village. They were often lonely and loved to walk on the moors. They were all great readers and soon began to write small pieces of verse and stories.
Once Charlotte's informal education was over she began to work as a governess and teacher in Yorkshire and Belgium so that she could add to the low family income and help to pay for her brother Branwell's art education. Charlotte was a rather nervous young woman and didn't like to be away from home for too long. The sisters began to write more seriously and published poetry in 1846 under male pen names - there was a lot of prejudice against women writers. The book was not a success and the sisters all moved on to write novels. Charlotte's best-known book, Jane Eyre, appeared in 1847 and was soon seen as a work of genius. Charlotte really knew how to make characters and situations come alive.
Charlotte's life was full of tragedy, never more so than when her brother Branwell and sisters Emily and Anne died within a few months in 1848/49. She married her father's curate in 1854 but died in 1855, before her fortieth birthday.
Charlotte Bronte was born in 1816 and died in 1855.

The Jane Eyre Review Jan 14, 2004
Over the last month I've been reading Jane Eyre. The book is by Charlotte Bronte. Jane Eyre was a good book because it had very interesting chapters. My favorite part was when Jane found out she was rich. I liked this part because it filled her with joy. My least favorite part was when Jane left the person she loved, so she wouldn't get hurt. I didn't like this part because it made me feel bad for Jane. I liked the ending because it was very happy! I would recommend this book to you because it has a lot of suprising scenes. I'm not going to tell you anymore because you will have more fun reading it yourself.
One's Own Identity May 26, 2001
Jane Eyre is a romantic novel. It portrays life for the women in the early 1800's. Jane wasn't like the other woman, she wanted to take care of her self. She didn't want the men to take care of her. She even compared herself to a man, and said she was smarter. Jane once said, "I can't stay here to become nothing to you." This quote showed that Jane wanted more out of life, than to be just a house wife. When you read this novel you will see that Jane is trying to find herself and on her journey in doing so, she also finds love. If you are into this kind of stuff, then you will like this book.
Jane Eyre? Pretty good! Jan 2, 2001
I just read Jane Eyre for a 9th grade classic book project. Even though I chose the book, as it was recommended, I found it was a bit slow in some parts, Charlotte Bronte gets so into her descriptions that it bores the reader from time to time. It was a good book all the same.The writing technique amazing. I loved the romance and the happy ending. I recomend it to tennagers and young adults,but a word to the wise keep a French dictionary handy!
None other compares to Jane Eyre Oct 17, 2000
If you have never read this great work of art, then I can only say that once you do, you will never come across another which compares. I still have not, though I have tried to find anything as deeply moving, meaningful, beautiful a story, and one so wonderfully well- written as Jane Eyre. My favorite movie version is the A & E version filmed a few years ago (1997, I believe) with Cirian Hinds, the Shakespearean actor, as Mr. Rochester. His portrayal captured most closely my impression of the character,from reading the novel, and I adored the whole script, and the beautiful use of language in that film. Also, the setting was wonderful. If you can find it, get that version. The story is so meanigful, don't leave this world without ever having read Jane Eyre.
