‘Jane Eyre’ Manuscript to be Published

The Brontë sisters have given the world literature that we still know and cherish today. Emily gave us Wuthering Heights and Charlotte gave us, most famously – Jane Eyre. According to The Guardian, Charlotte Brontë‘s facsimile manuscript of Jane Eyre from 1847 will be published for the first time in December. 

The publisher said the copy is, “neat, with most notable revisions and corrections centred around her portrayal of Jane’s encounters with Mr Rochester.” Brontë’s 824 page manuscript that she gave her publisher was a sign that she had dedicated a lot of time and effort into producing the novel and seeing the evidence in December will bring us that much closer to her writing process.
