Transcript of Jane Eyre1

Chapters 1-4 Jane was a poor orphan who lived with her cruel aunt, Mrs. Reed, and her three cousins: Eliza, Georgiana, and John. This is Jane... Mrs. Reed couldn't stand Jane around (partially because Jane reminded her of her husband's last dying wish that she treat Jane as her own child). So, ignoring the guilt, Mrs. Reed sent Jane to a very strict “ladies” school called Lowood. chapters 5-10 The following day after Jane arrives at lowood, she is introduced to her classmates. Jane becomes friends with a girl named Helen Burns. Miss Temple, the superintendent of the school, is very kind, while one of Jane’s teachers, Miss Scatcherd, is very unpleasant and cruel (especially to Helen). Jane quickly learns that life at the school is harsh. The girls are underfed, overworked, and forced to sit still during seemingly endless sermons. Jane takes comfort in Helens friendship, but Helen impresses on Jane, her doctrine of Christian endurance. While Jane strongly disagrees with her doctrine. For most of Jane’s first month at Lowood, Mr. Brocklehurst spends his time away from the school. When he returns, Jane becomes quite nervous because she remembers his promise to her aunt, Mrs. Reed, to warn the school about Jane’s supposed habit of lying. When Jane accidentaly drops her slate in Mr. Brocklehurst’s presence, he is furious! He orders Jane to stand on a stool while he tells the school that she is a liar, and he forbids the other students to speak to her for the rest of the day.
