Summary (From the publisher):

Orphaned at an early age, Jane Eyre leads a lonely life until she finds work as a governess at Thornfield Hall, where she meets the mysterious Mr. Rochester and sees a ghostly woman who roams the halls by night. This is a story of passionate love, travail and final triumph. The relationship between the heroine and Mr. Rochester is only one episode, albeit the most important, in a detailed fictional autobiography in which the author transmuted her own experience into high art. In this work the plucky heroine is outwardly of plain appearance, but possesses an indomitable spirit, a sharp wit and great courage. She is forced to battle against the exigencies of a cruel guardian, a harsh employer and a rigid social order which circumscribes her life and position.

Initially published under the pseudonym Currer Bell in 1847, Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre erupted onto the English literary scene, immediately winning the devotion of many of the world's most renowned writers, including William Makepeace Thackeray, who declared it a work "of great genius."
Never before had English readers met a heroine like Jane -- small, plain, and even bold and unladylike. Never before had they read such a searching portrayal of passion. Nor had they entered so completely into the character of the narrator, seeing everyone and everything through her eyes and her emotions.

The first person narrative, or auto-biographical technique, had certainly been used before, but not so subjectively, so personally. Indeed, Charlotte Brontė was the first subjective novelist, the literary ancestress of Proust and James Joyce.
