Bronte, Charlotte - Jane Eyre - ( Item 122381 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2014. First Thus. Fine Hardback. Sealed. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. Illustrated by Santiago Caruso, this edition of Charlotte Brontë's beloved novel celebrates its gothic undercurrents. Bound in buckram. Set in Adobe Caslon Pro. 512 pages. Frontispiece and 9 colour illustrations. Book size: 9½" x 6¼". Orphaned Jane emerges from a cold, hostile upbringing at Lowood Institution to take her place as governess at Thornfield, home of Mr Rochester. With her petulant but loving charge, Adele, and the housekeeper Mrs Fairfax as her sole company, Rochester remains a distant, mysterious and yet imposing presence. As time goes by, however, Jane’s life at Thornfield becomes increasingly unsettled, and strange and ever more frightening occurrences lead her towards a shocking revelation. Artist Santiago Caruso’s dedication to the fantastique made him sensitive to the novel’s otherworldliness. His illustrations evoke its eerie scenery and the intensity of Jane’s experiences. In most she is central: a small but wilful figure whose ‘obscure’ life is as profoundly engaging as that of the most dazzling heroine. As author Emma Donoghue writes in her introduction, Jane 'survives all sorts of abuses and humiliations because she is driven on by a sense that she matters, because everybody matters'.
