"Penguin Readers" is a series of simplified novels, film novelizations and original titles that introduce students at all levels to the pleasures of reading in English. Originally designed for teaching English as a foreign language, the series' combination of high interest level and low reading age makes it suitable for both English-speaking teenagers with limited reading skills and students of English as a second language. Many titles in the series also provide access to the pre-20th century literature strands of the National Curriculum English Orders. "Penguin Readers" are graded at seven levels of difficulty, from "Easystarts" with a 200-word vocabulary, to Level 6 (Advanced) with a 3000-word vocabulary. In addition, titles fall into one of three sub-categories: "Contemporary", "Classics" or "Originals". At the end of each book there is a section of enjoyable exercises focusing on vocabulary building, comprehension, discussion and writing. Some titles in the series are available with an accompanying audio cassette, or in a book and cassette pack. Additionally, selected titles have free accompanying "Penguin Readers Factsheets" which provide stimulating exercise material for students, as well as suggestions for teachers on how to exploit the Readers in class.Hide synopsis

In her introduction, Stevie Davis discusses the novel's language and politics, its treatment of women's lives and its literary influences. This edition also includes a chronology, further reading, an appendix and notes. Charlotte Bronte (1816-55), eldest of the Bronte sisters, was born in Thornton, West Yorkshire. "Jane Eyre" was first published in 1847 under the pen-name Currer Bell, and was followed by "Shirley" (1848) and "Vilette" (1853). In 1854 Charlotte Bronte married her father's curate, Arthur Bell Nicholls. She died during her pregnancy on March 31, 1855. The Professor was posthumously published in 1857.

"At the end we are steeped through and through with the genius, the vehemence, the indignation of Charlotte Bronte". (Virginia Woolf). "Charlotte Bronte's heroine towers over those around her, morally, intellectually and aesthetically...she takes a scalpel to the skin of the everyday". (China Mieville). "The masterwork of a great genius". (William Makepeace Thackeray).Hide
