Jane Eyre

by Brontë, Charlotte [Autor] | Klett, Elizabeth [Sprecher].

computer file downloadable Audio Book | 2014 | Film | Drama/Schicksal | Literaturverfilmung | Liebe | Drama | Hörspiel | Lesung | Frauen | More titles to the topic Prejudices, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilised by education: they grow there, firm as weeds among stones. One of the great love stories of all literature. It is a novel often considered ahead of its time due to its portrayal of the development of a thinking and passionate young woman who is both individualistic, desiring for a full life, while also highly moral. Jane evolves from her beginnings as a poor and plain woman without captivating charm to her mature stage as a compassionate and confident whole woman. As she matures, she comments much on the complexities of the human condition. Jane also has a deeply pious personal trust in God, but is also highly self-reliant. Although Jane suffers much, she is never portrayed as a damsel in distress who needs rescuing. For this reason, it is sometimes regarded as an important early feminist novel. Dt.
