A seminal and influential work of feminist literary criticism that focuses on iconic 19th century female writers Jane Austen, Emily and Charlotte Bronte, George Eliot, and Emily Dickinson. The title is a reference to "Jane Eyre." Also check out Kate Millett's "Sexual Politics" and de Beauvoir's "The Second Sex."
