"When Charlotte Bronte removed her heroines from the home, she loosened the constrictions that bound a woman to her stove and cradle, and launched an inquiry into the nature of feminine experience that was to change the course of modern fiction."
--Susan Fromberg Schaeffer
Charlotte Brontė was an English 19th century writer whose novel Jane Eyre is considered a classic of Western literature.

In 1847, Brontė published the semi-autobiographical novel Jane Eyre, which was a hit and would become a literary classic. Her other novels included Shirley and Villette. She died on March 31, 1855, in Haworth, Yorkshire, England.
