'Jane Eyre ' is the one of the famous novels by Charlotte Bronte and also known as the most prominent novels in the Great Britain. ‘Jane Eyre’ reflects the ultimate associations of the social order of that spell in Great Britain flawlessly. Search for family and love, the passion, diversities between social classes and the responsibilities of the women in the civilization of that period, all are comprised.

She proves to be the only exception to Bronte’s stereotype of the inverse relationship to beauty and personality. Rosamond is the unattainable goal that every Victorian woman strives for; beautiful inside and out.

In Charlotte Bronte’s coming of age novel, Jane Eyre, outward beauty deceives as it ironically represents a true evil in oneself.
