Ich versuche die Rezension in english zu schreiben, doch es ist schon einige Jahre her seit meinem letzten english summary ;)
Jane Eyre is a young girl, orphaned as a baby. Both her mother and father died together from a type of fever. Jane has to live with her cruel Aunt Reed, who only takes her in as the result of a promise to her husband (Janes oncle) on his deathbed. Mrs. Reed does not treat Jane so very well, and her son often beats and verbally abuses her. Jane grows up for many years very unhappy. Finally Jane is sent to Lowood Institution and she attends this school for over eight years; after a couple years, the standard of living at the school is improved. The first time in life she has found friends, Helen Burns, and Ms. Temple, a teacher. These two individuals greatly affect Jane's personality and character. Especially related to personal philosophy, religion, and treatment of others.
