Seasons: Weather in Charlotte Bront's Jane Eyre Research Proposal

… ¶ … Seasons: Weather in Charlotte Bront's Jane Eyre

The most successful authors use several literary techniques to add depth and texture to their novels.

In addition, we often find our heroine close to elements that seem to embrace her. When things are going their worst, Jane finds herself in the cold of winter without a place to go. In addition, when things are looking up, we see lighter, more pleasant weather. These metaphors allow us to connect with Jane because images presented that allow us to feel as though we relate.….

Jane Eyre the Single Most Dangerous Trap Term Paper

… Jane Eyre

The single most dangerous trap of modern literary criticism is interjecting modern ideals and morals upon the past. Gilbert and Gubar discuss Jane Eyre's "rebellious feminism" and see her narrative as "a story of enclosure and escape." Though there are some concepts, such as feminism that simply have no other word to describe the relative phenomena of a social ideal they must be used sparingly and only in context to the nature of the society which originally received the works. Feminism in context of Bronte's time and the coincidence of the publishing of Jane Eyre is the feminism of the Victorian Era, fighting against convention, and for self-determination, not the feminism of today that would pit women against nearly all pretenses of morality….

… Eyre End

Towards an Appropriate Ending for Jane Eyre: The Anti-Hero's Faith in Principle and Law

Jane Eyre is almost epic in scope despite the deeply personal focus and perspective of the novel, incorporating themes of enormous scale and certain trajectories that are millennia in the making. Strong religious symbolism and the direct appearance of religion in a variety of forms permeates the text, and commentary on British history and social practices can also be found in the larger plot structures of the novel and in many of the seemingly trivial activities Jane has in her day-to-day life. While the central story appears to be that of Jane's struggle to carve out her own space in the world and to find a life that allows…. [read more]

… Eyre

Jane Eyre as a Study of Victorian England

19th century England was a time informed by traditional religious values. Such values were directly contrasted by the influence of key progressive individuals. Author Charlotte Bronte was such an individual, provoking a discourse on the topics of gender, religion and equality during an era where her subversive meditations were conspicuous.

Indeed, such is evident in her classic literary exploration of these subjects, Jane Eyre, where Bronte endeavors to convey the practicality of her sociological perspective as well as the inherent cruelty of any manner of social exclusion.

By creating a character that is always the 'other,' whether it be amid the rich, the poor or even with the man she loves, Bronte renders Jane Eyre as…. [read more]

Jane Eyre: 1996 Movie Assessments Term Paper

… John. In the final estimate, it is shown that this character St. John Rivers, like Jane and Rochester, in their own unique ways, have found a kind of self-fulfillment, the ultimate purpose of life. But St. John's own theological struggle draws less attention of the film's perspective, as the film is not structured on a series of choices made by Jane, but merely upon her passion for Rochester.

Another reason for St. John's lesser influence in the film is the decreased emphasis on religion. One of the first conflicts Jane experiences as a child is between the harsh religion of self-sacrifice presented by her friend at the religious boarding school where she is sent to be under the tutelage by Mr. Brocklehurst, and her own….

Her name is Mrs. Blanche Ingram. She is a beautiful woman, and yet, with all her exterior magnificence, she fails to win the heart of Rochester. As Jane observes, she fails to win his heart because, "she could not charm him" (pg.…. [read more]

With a glance, she saw that he had lost none of his recent civility; and, to imitate his politeness, she began, as they met, to admire the beauty of the place; but she had not got beyond the words "delightful," and "charming," when some unlucky recollections obtruded, and she fancied that praise of Pemberley from her might be mischievously construed. Her colour changed, and she said no more. (216)



Elizabeth's courage did not fail her. She had heard nothing of Lady Catherine that spoke her awful from any extraordinary talents or miraculous virtue, and the mere stateliness of money or rank she thought she could witness without trepidation. (139).…. [read more]

… Brocklehurst. The same goes for the female landowner who does not oversee the management of her own establishment but instead depends on her son to do it for her. Charlotte Bronte uses these characters and situations to show how in Victorian England all aspects of life are dependent on males.

Victorian Novel Jane Eyre Essay

… (pp. 69-70)

The language of the entire novel is rather dark and bleak. Even the romantic scenes at the end do not really lift the spirits of the readers. There appears to be thick cloud of darkness hovering over every scene especially the ones at Rochester's house. Her days at Rochester's are given a strange, dark and rather unnerving touch with 'strange laughs' and the presence of a queer figure. These laughs contribute heavily to the dark impact of the language, as Jane once observes, "This was a demoniac laugh -- low, suppressed, and deep -- uttered, as it seemed, at the very keyhole of my chamber door. The head of my bed was near the door, and I thought at first the goblin-laugher stood…. [read more]

Charlotte Perkins Gilman's "The Yellow Essay

… The discrepancy of perceptions of truth and reality are not manifest in Dexter's thought processes, in contrast to "The Yellow Wallpaper" but through small but significant details, such as Judy's confidence swinging golf clubs and the nature of Dexter's unglamorous business assets. Through small details, the story gains a 'truthful' feel. Shifts in time are presented in carefully-detailed scenes, giving the story its modernist, fragmented quality. There is also a certain ambiguous morality to the tale. Judy Jones functions less as a three-dimensional character than as a symbol Dexter invests his hopes and dreams into, only to find this symbol bankrupt and lacking in real value. Once again, the main character's internal development is more important than the relatively minor and trivial events of playing…. [read more]

Gothic Novel and Jane Eyre Term Paper

… " (163). As the antagonist of Jane Eyre, Mr. Rochester appears to resemble a number of Romantic/Gothic poets, especially Lord Byron whose hero found in the poem "Don Juan" symbolizes the master of the house at Thornfield. His heroic stature is also shown by Jane's observation that his influence "mastered me," meaning that Mr. Rochester, in the words of Jane, "took my feelings from my own power and fettered them in his."

All of these examples, at least to the observant reader, are overflowing with imagery, another important trait of the Gothic.

Jane Eyre and Wild Sargasso Sea Thesis

… Rochester Through Different Eyes

An orphaned girl. A mad woman locked and hidden away. A small village school that is both a refuge and another form of adversity. These things and many more appear both in Charlotte Bront's classic novel Jane Eyre and the companion piece written to it almost one hundred and twenty years later by Jean Rhys, Wide Sargasso Sea. The huge similarities in plot -- and in the two protagonists -- are not accidental; Wide Sargasso Sea is in many ways an exciting and somehow updated re-imagining of Bront's masterpiece. The overlap does not just occur with similarities, however, but by the direct connection of several characters. Rhys takes Bertha Mason, Edward Rochester's mad and attic-imprisoned wife in Jane Eyre, and traces…. [read more]

When Jane struggles over her feelings for Rochester, Bertha can react. Bertha also represents the side of Jane that longs to be free and…. [read more]
