About this book


This new study demonstrates the precision of Brontë's historical setting of Jane Eyre . Thomas addresses the historical worlding of Brontë and her characters, mapping relations of genre and gender across the novel's articulation of questions of imperial history and relations, reform, racialization and the making of Englishness.
