A choice selection of excerpts from Charlotte Bronte's (1816-1855) masterpiece "Jane Eyre", with new illustrations by Portuguese visual artist Paula Rego and a scholarly introduction by British writer and historian Marina Warner.
"...Rego has long had a fascination with Charlotte Bronte's 'Jane Eyre' and Jean Rhys's 'The Wide Sargasso Sea.' In 2002 this culminated in the production of twenty-five lithographs, reproduced here in a large format artist's book, along with excerpts from the novel. Marina Warner, in her eloquent and perceptive introduction, examines why 'Jane Eyre' should have inspired Rego's work" (N.B., from prospectus).
