Transcript of Jane Eyre 13-17

Question 5 Question 6 "On page 163 more reference is made to the description of Jane's appearance. Why do you think these comments are a continuing thread throughout the story?" Jane Eyre Chapters 13-17 Question 3 Rochester states, "Remorse is the poison of life." To what extent do you agree or disagree with Rochester? Support your opinion. Question 2 "Most things free-born will submit to anything for a salary."--Rochester

I don't agree with this philosophy. I can't speak for everyone but, for instance, people don't just choose a job for the money because they would hate the second day of it. People choose the jobs they do to fulfill something in their life and to feel accomplished. Yes there are people who become certain things for the money or to complete the dreams their parents had for them to become a doctor or lawyer just like them. However not anyone will make it in any career they can't put their heart and soul into everyday and get joy out of it.

In Jane's case she does what she does because she wants help people and be there for people. However she is starting to realize how far will she go with this job before it is an all consuming that can't be put out. Question 1 The first encounter was like no other. It all started in the woods when Jane helped Rochester when he had fallen off of his horse and was completely helpless. Jane has no idea who he is or that he will be her soon master. This encounter foreshadows that once again she will help him in his fallen moments and helplessness that he cannot control on his own. She will be his saving grace that he needs to get back on the horse and back on the trail with a good ending up ahead. Family: Question 4 Due to the fact that he often romanced Jane while still being married to another woman.
Also due to the lack of common morals that most Victorian men had at the time. Summary: Key Themes Key Characters Jane Eyre:
18 years old
Attended Lowood Institute for 6 years. Taught at Lowood Institute for 2 years
Governess to Adele, in the employ of Mr. Rochester. Mr. Rochester:
The proprietor of Thornfield
Jane's employer Literary Techniques Adele Varens:
Mr. Rochester's ward
Jane's student Mrs. Fairfax:
Housekeeper at Thornfield Conway Amanda Calla Chelsea Amanda Conway Calla Chelsea Ciara Ciara Jane meets Mr. Rochester, and though they get along well enough, both seem to focus on the other’s faults. During their encounters Mr. Rochester begins to confide in Jane, and the connection between the two is strengthened when Jane saves Rochester from the fire in his bedroom, which she discovered after being awakened by a “demonic laugh.” Jane believes Grace had something to do with lighting the fire; Mr. Rochester departs on a journey. Before Rochester returns, he sends word that he will be hosting guests, one of whom is Blanche Ingram, who Jane is jealous of, for she has fallen in love with Rochester, and there are indications that Rochester and Blanche would marry. Basically:
Jane and Rochester meet
Jane feels there is a mystery about Thornfield everyone knows but her
Jane realizes she loves Rochester The comments regarding Jane's appearance are wound into the story to emphasize that Jane is not a great beauty - she isn't able to lie her life by relying on her looks, she has to work for everything she gets. Jane must develop an inner strength to take the place of what in another woman (like Blanche) would be taken care of by beauty. In developing an inner strength, Jane also develops an inner beauty, for there is more to her than meets the eyre, unlike women who have never had to learn or work to survive. Grace Poole:
Blamed for all the strange happenings
Has small drinking problem Miss Blanche Ingram:
Miss Ingram is the beautiful woman whom Rochester makes Jane think he is to marry. "Explain whether or not Blanche Ingram might be considered an ideal catch for Rochester. How might men of today's world view her?" Jane feels no particular ties to family, as she has never had a loving one
Even as Jane works at Thornfield, she feels no connection to family, until...
Jane falls in love with Mr. Rochester ~ Men today might view Blanche as gold digger. She only wants to marry Rochester because he is a wealthy man and he is in much of the public eye. ~I do not believe Blanche is a"catch" for Rochester because he is unconventional, ready to set aside polite manners, propriety, and consideration of social class in order to interact with Jane frankly and directly. Blanche on the other hand is a beautiful socialite who despises Jane and hopes to marry Rochester for his money. Social Status: Jane and Adele have to eat off to the side when the guests arrive with Mr. Rochester
There are secrets that only certain people are allowed to know (What Grace's job is and why it is difficult and high-paying)
Jane loves Rochester, but is still under his employ Inner vs.Outer Beauty Symbolism Syntax Jane is an attractive woman, but is not considered especially beautiful- it takes Rochestwer so time to develop feelings for her
Blanche is described as a beautiful socailite and Rochester is attracted to her immediately; her beauty hides her true nature of greediness
Bertha was a gorgeous woman whose allure sucked in Rochester and blinded him from her insanity long enough for her to marry him ~The pictures are all characteristic of a Romantic interest in the visionary and the sublime. They also suggest the isolation and turmoil of Jane’s mind. The coming storm image forecasts the emotional turmoil ahead. (Chapter 13)

~The Gothic mystery in Thornfield deepens, and becomes more dangerous. A fire in the bedroom suggests that the raging passion symbolized by the fire is connected to love, sex, and marriage.

~Jane believes Rochester will be forced to marry someone in his social class, regardless of his feelings. The two styles of the portraits reinforce the unbridgeable gap that Jane senses between herself and the upper class. Her her despair reveals her growing feelings for Rochester. The syntax and style of the sentences in Jane Eyre are complex; phrases and clauses are interwoven, but still feel balanced and exact. Genres that describe the book ~Coming-of-Age
~Gothic Fiction
~Autobiography "How does Rochester treat Jane during their initial encounter? What might this foretell about how their relationship will develop?" "Why might the events of Rochester's life seemed shocking to Victorian readers?" I completely agree with Mr. Rochester when he says,"Remorse is the poison of life," for when a person suffers from remorse, they cannot think about anything except it. If a person regrets a decision that they made, then that decision is all that they will think about, hindering everything in their lives and further decisions. Remorse taints everything that we do, as we cannot truly get over anything while we are remorseful about it. "Rochester comments, "Most things free-born will submit to anything for a salary" (137.) Do you agree with his philosophy? Why or why not? From what you know of Jane, will it be true of her? Use text-based examples to support your views.
