• Edition enrichie de Dominique Barbéris comportant une préface et un dossier sur le roman.

    D'où vient que nous revenions toujours à Jane Eyre avec le même attrait? Avec le sentiment d'y trouver le romanesque porté à un degré de perfection ? Le roman offre un concentré de ce que le genre peut produire : l'histoire d'une formation, l'affrontement d'un être solitaire avec sa destinée, la passion, la peur, le mystère. C'est la révolte d'une humiliée, d'une femme inconvenante parce qu'elle s'oppose aux hommes. Jane est sauvage, directe, déjà féministe. Face à elle, le cygne noir, Rochester, séducteur sulfureux, sadique et tendre, père et amant.
    Cette voluptueuse autobiographie déguisée - derrière Jane, on devine Charlotte - donne l'impression d'une âme parlant à l'âme.

Lorsqu'elle entre dans sa dixième année, Mme Reed, décidée à s'en débarrasser définitivement, envoie Jane dans une pension pour jeunes filles pauvres, où l'on va lui enseigner sévèrement, les rigueurs de la vie...

    This carefully crafted ebook: "Albion and Marina" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.
    Albion and Marina was written by Charlotte Brontë when she was 14 years old. It is her first love story, a romance about star-crossed lovers.
    Charlotte Brontë (1816 - 1855), English writer noted for her novel Jane Eyre (1847) and sister of Anne Brontë and Emily Brontë. The three sisters are almost as famous for their short, tragic lives as for their novels. In their works they described love more truthfully that was common in Victorian age England. In the past 40 years Charlotte Brontë's reputation has risen rapidly, and feminist criticism has done much to show that she was speaking up for oppressed women of every age.

  • This carefully crafted ebook: "The Complete Novels of Charlotte Brontë" contains all 5 novels in one volume and is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.
    Jane Eyre (1847) is a novel published under the pen name "Currer Bell." Jane Eyre was Charlotte Brontë's second novel, but the first to be published. It follows the emotions and experiences of its character, including her growth to adulthood, and her love for Mr. Rochester. The focus is on the gradual unfolding of Jane's moral and spiritual sensibility and all the events are coloured by a heightened intensity. The novel contains elements of social criticism, with a strong sense of morality at its core.
    Shirley is an 1849 social novel. It was Brontë's second published novel after Jane Eyre. The novel is set in Yorkshire in the period 1811-12, during the industrial depression resulting from the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812. The novel is set against a backdrop of the Luddite uprisings in the Yorkshire textile industry.
    Villette (1853) was Charlotte Brontë's fourth novel. It was preceded by the posthumously published The Professor, her first, and then Jane Eyre and Shirley. After an unspecified family disaster, the protagonist Lucy Snowe travels from England to the fictional French-speaking city of Villette to teach at a girls' school, where she is drawn into adventure and romance.
    The Professor was the first novel by Charlotte Brontë. It was originally written before Jane Eyre and rejected by many publishing houses, but was eventually published posthumously in 1857. The book is the story of a young man, William Crimsworth, and is a first-person narrative from his perspective. It describes his maturation, his loves and his eventual career as a professor at an all-girls school.
    Emma (unfinished)
    Charlotte Brontë wrote only 20 pages of the manuscript, published posthumously in 1860. Another lady whom the name we don't know complete the later chapters.
    It is a clue which link the mysterious girl, Martina and the guardians, Mrs.Chalfont and Mr.Ellin together.
    Charlotte Brontë (1816 - 1855) was an English novelist and poet, the eldest of the three Brontë sisters who survived into adulthood and whose novels are English literature standards. She wrote Jane Eyre under the pen name Currer Bell.

    The four volumes of tales collected here make delightful reading, while offering a unique insight into Brontë family life and Charlotte's development as a writer: these are the stories she and her siblings imagined for their magic island kingdom. The stories are charmingly written in a very fairytale-esque style. They are written by a child and therefore are sometimes hard to follow when the stories make big turns, which force the reader to read them slowly and devour each sentence.

    In 1834, Charlotte Brontë and her brother Branwell created the imaginary kingdom of Angria in a series of tiny handmade books. Continuing their saga some years later, the five 'novelettes' in this volume were written by Charlotte when she was in her early twenties, and depict an aristocratic beau monde in witty, racy and ironic language. She creates an exotic, scandalous atmosphere of intrigue and destructive passions, with a cast ranging from the ageing rake Northangerland and his Byronic son-in-law Zamorna, King of Angria, to Mary Percy, Zamorna's lovesick wife, and Charles Townshend, the cynical, gossipy narrator. Together the tales provide a fascinating glimpse into the mind and creative processes of the young writer who was to become one of the world's great novelists.
    Charlotte Brontë (1816 - 1855) worked as a teacher and governess before collaborating on a book of poetry with her two sisters, Emily and Anne, who were writers as well. In 1847, Brontë published the semi-autobiographical novel Jane Eyre, which was a hit and would become a literary classic. Her other novels included Shirley and Villette.
    Patrick Branwell Brontë (1817 - 1848) was a painter, and writer and poet, the only son of the Brontë family, and the brother of the writers Charlotte, Emily, and Anne.

  • This carefully crafted ebook: "Jane Eyre + Wuthering Heights (2 Unabridged Classics)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.
    Charlotte Brontë's most beloved novel describes the passionate love between the courageous orphan Jane Eyre and the brilliant, brooding, and domineering Rochester. The loneliness and cruelty of Jane's childhood strengthens her natural independence and spirit, which prove invaluable when she takes a position as a governess at Thornfield Hall. But after she falls in love with her sardonic employer, her discovery of his terrible secret forces her to make a heart-wrenching choice. Ever since its publication in 1847, Jane Eyre has enthralled every kind of reader, from the most critical and cultivated to the youngest and most unabashedly romantic. It lives as one of the great triumphs of storytelling and as a moving and unforgettable portrayal of a woman's quest for self-respect.
    Born into a poor family and raised by an oppressive aunt, young Jane Eyre becomes the governess at Thornfield Manor to escape the confines of her life. There her fiery independence clashes with the brooding and mysterious nature of her employer, Mr. Rochester. But what begins as outright loathing slowly evolves into a passionate romance. When a terrible secret from Rochester's past threatens to tear the two apart, Jane must make an impossible choice: Should she follow her heart or walk away and lose her love forever?
    Considered by many to be Charlotte Brontë's masterpiece, Jane Eyre chronicles the passionate love between the independent and strong-willed orphan Jane Eyre and the dark, impassioned Mr. Rochester. Having endured a lonely and cruel childhood, orphan Jane Eyre, who is reared in the home of her heartless aunt prior to attending a boarding school with an equally torturous regime, is strengthened by these experiences. The natural independence and unbroken spirit she emerges with allows her to thrive as a governess at Thornfield Hall. It is only after she falls in love with her employer and discovers his explosive secret that she is forced to return to the poverty and isolation of her past.
    Wuthering Heights is the only published novel by Emily Brontë, written between October 1845 and June 1846 and published in July of the following year. It was not printed until December 1847 under the pseudonym Ellis Bell, after the success of her sister Charlotte Brontë's novel Jane Eyre. A posthumous second edition was edited by Charlotte in 1850. It is one of the world's greatest tales of unrequited love, captivating readers with its intense passion and drama. A classic novel of consuming passions, played out against the lonely moors of northern England, recounts the turbulent and tempestuous love story.
    The title of the novel comes from the Yorkshire manor on the moors of the story. The narrative centres on the all-encompassing, passionate, but ultimately doomed love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, and how this unresolved passion eventually destroys them and the people around them.

  • Jane Eyre II

    Charlotte Brontë

    La suite du premier tome de Jane Eyre. Devenue orpheline dès son plus âge, Jane Eyre est recueillie par M. Reed, son oncle. Après la mort de ce dernier, sa tante la traite durement et l'accuse de tous les vices. Lorsqu'elle entre dans sa dixième année, Mme Reed, décidée à s'en débarrasser définitivement, envoie Jane dans une pension pour jeunes filles pauvres, où l'on va lui enseigner sévèrement, les rigueurs de la vie... Extrait : Les pressentiments, les sympathies et les signes sont trois choses étranges qui, ensemble, forment un mystère dont l'humanité n'a pas encore trouvé la clef ; je n'ai jamais ri des pressentiments, parce que j'en ai eu d'étranges ; il y a des sympathies qui produisent des effets incompréhensibles, comme celles, par exemple, qui existent entre des parents éloignés et inconnus, sympathies qui se continuent, malgré la distance, à cause de l'origine qui est commune ; et les signes pourraient bien n'être que la sympathie entre l'homme et la nature.

  • Shirley I

    Charlotte Brontë

    C'est un tableau de moeurs, surtout du monde de la manufacture en crise sociale, mais où les vicaires (curates) anglicans jouent aussi un rôle et sont peints avec ironie et humour. Extrait : Les vicaires, pendant ce temps, buvaient à petits coups leur vin, liqueur d'un cru médiocre et modérément estimée. M. Malone eût certainement préféré du whisky ; mais M. Donne, qui était Anglais, ne tenait pas à ce breuvage. En buvant, ils argumentaient non sur la politique, ni sur la philosophie ou la littérature ; ces questions étaient alors, comme toujours, sans intérêt pour eux ; pas même sur la théologie pratique ou doctrinale ; mais sur des points insignifiants de discipline ecclésiastique, frivolités et bagatelles pour tout le monde, excepté pour eux.

    Charlotte Brontë

    Tome 2 de Shirley. C'est un tableau de moeurs, surtout du monde de la manufacture en crise sociale, mais où les vicaires (curates) anglicans jouent aussi un rôle et sont peints avec ironie et humour. Extrait : Très bien, ma mère ! Et, si mon maître m'a confié dix talents, mon devoir est de les faire fructifier afin qu'ils en produisent dix autres, et non d'enterrer l'argent dans la poussière de mes tiroirs. Je ne le déposerai pas dans une théière ébréchée, pour le renfermer au milieu des tasses et des pots dans l'armoire à porcelaine. Je ne le confierai pas à votre table à ouvrage pour être étouffé sous une pile de bas de laine. Je ne l'emprisonnerai pas dans l'armoire à linge, parmi les draps ; et encore bien moins, ma mère (elle se leva à ces mots de dessus le plancher), encore bien moins le cacherai-je dans une terrine de pommes de terre froides pour être rangé avec le pain, le beurre, la pâtisserie et le jambon, sur les rayons du garde-manger. »

  • Nous avons tissé une toile à l'enfance,
    Une toile aérienne et ensoleillée
    Et dans la prime enfance détecté une source
    D'eau fraîche et non souillée.
    Charlotte Brontë

    Tout le monde connaît les soeurs Brontë :
    Charlotte, Emily et Anne.
    Mais le frère, Branwell ?
    Et leur enfance dissimulée à inventer des mondes et des langages ?
    À travers poèmes et proses inédits, ce recueil reconstruit le cheminement imaginaire - « le monde du dessous », écrivait Charlotte - au coeur de la création romanesque des Brontë et lui donne tout son sens.

  • "Le son aigre d'une cloche me réveilla avant l'aube. Toutes les filles se levèrent aussitôt malgré le froid mordant. Comme elles, je m'habillai en grelottant, et attendis pour me laver qu'une bassine se libère, car il n'y en avait qu'une pour six filles. La cloche sonna de nouveau ; tout le monde se rangea deux par deux pour descendre l'escalier et gagner la grande salle, froide et à peine éclairée." Un grand classique de la littérature, magnifiquement illustré !
