Charlotte Brontë (21 April 1816 - 31 March 1855) was a British novelist, the eldest of the three famous Brontë sisters whose novels have become standards of English literature. Charlotte Brontë, who used the pen name Currer Bell, is best known for Jane Eyre, one of the most famous of English novels. This audiobook collects together ten of her best works of poetry, first published in the collection 'Poems by Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell' in 1846.
"Notes From the Heart"
The Professor, the first novel that Charlotte Brontë completed, is based on her experiences as a language student in Brussels in 1842. Told from the point of view of William Crimsworth, the only male narrator she created, the work questions many of the presuppositions of Victorian society.
Poems can evoke within us an individual response that takes us by surprise; that opens our ears and eyes to very personal feelings. Forget the idea of classic poetry being somehow dull and boring and best kept to children's textbooks. It still has life, vibrancy and relevance to our lives today.
An erotic retelling of a timeless literary classic. Jane Eyre has lived a sheltered, callous life. Orphaned at a young age and despised by her remaining family, she is shipped off to Lowood School and can only dream of tenderness and affection.

"It Just Doesn't Work"
Shirley è un “romanzo sociale” del 1849 pubblicato dopo il primo fortunato romanzo della stessa autrice, Jane Eyre (che peraltro era stato pubblicato, come questo, sotto lo pseudonimo di Currer Bell). Il romanzo è ambientato nello Yorkshire negli anni 1811-1812 e tratta della depressine industriale dovuta alla guerra Napoleonica, con la conseguente reazione operaia sfociante nel luddismo.
Jane begins life penniless and plain: an unlikely romantic heroine. But she is as indomitable in spirit as she is frail in appearance. Taking a position as a governess at Thornfield Hall, her relationship with her employer, the enigmatic Mr Rochester intensifies, until she is forced to choose between the desires of her heart and the demands of a 'moral' society.
One of the greatest love stories ever written, Jane Eyre is the tale of a young woman entangled with the powerful Mr. Rochester. What lurks in the attic at Thornfield, the ancestral home of the surly Mr. Rochester? Will the governess Jane Eyre discover his secret - and having discovered it, live to regret that knowledge?

Christiane Ohaus hat den romantischen Klassiker in ein akustisches Universum verwandelt, mit genialer Leichtigkeit greifen Musik, Geräusche und schauspielerische Gestaltung ineinander. Mit Sascha Icks als Jane Eyre, die sich zwischen ihrer Liebe und ihrer Selbstständigkeit entscheiden muss, mit Christian Redl als mürrisch-liebenswertem Landedelmann und Sylvester Groth als seinem Konkurrenten bleibt auch der kleinste Zwischenton von Charlotte Brontës großem Roman bewahrt.
