Bronte: Jane Eyre

In this course, we explore several aspects of Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre. The course is divided into two equal halves: in the first six modules, we think about some of the major themes of the novel, looking in particular at gender, race, and class; in the second, we think more about narrative structure and concept of autobiography, focusing in particular on the extent to which Jane is a reliable narrator.

The Brontes

In this module, we introduce Charlotte and her family, their upbringing, and their literary output up to 1847 – the year that Jane Eyre was published.
