Charlotte Bronte's classic tale of morality and social criticism takes on an entirely new life in this Manga Classic adaptation of Jane Eyre. All Manga Classic titles are produced with lesson plans, teaching guides and leveling for use in the classroom. With each and every Manga Classic, it is our passion and hope that we help the reader connect with the story in a meaningful way. We also feel this is an exciting way to introduce these classic stories to a new reader who may then go back to read the original texts. We hope you enjoy our work.
Charlotte Bronte was an English novelist and poet. Born at the start of the 19th century, Bronte was the eldest of the three Bronte sisters who survived into adulthood and whose novels have become classics of English literature. She first published her under the pen name Currer Bell. Crystal S. Chan is an award-winning author and television screen play writer. She holds a degree in language and literature. Crystal is a huge fan of authors such as Jane Austen and she is equally passionate about Sailor Moon. Her passion for classic literature combined with her love of the comics medium allows her to strike a solid balance between preserving the depth of the original content while adapting the language for a younger generation. SunNeko Lee is a talented artist who works in two worlds: comics, and animation. At an early age she made her professional debut as a comic strip artist before moving to character design and storyboard work in the animation industry. SunNeko's work for the Manga Classics project allows her to celebrate her passion for the comic arts. Lee's artist alias, SunNeko, combines her love of cats and the warmth of the sun (Neko is cat in Japanese).
