Charlotte Brontë originally published her novel under the pseudonym "Currer Bell" for all of the following reasons EXCEPT
She wanted her pseudonym to reflect the name of the author who inspired her to write.
Being published was nearly impossible for a woman during the Victorian era.
She wanted to protect herself from the public's reception of the novel's controversial material.
Her hypochondria was not conducive to the fame her novel might bring.
She did not want the events of Jane Eyre to be tied too closely to her personal life.
