Jane Eyre Chapter 17
Transcript of Jane Eyre Chapter 17
1) Identify the tangibles that Bronte utilizes to show wealth in this chapter.
2) Argue how readers know Mr. Rochester has intimate feelings toward Jane. 1) Things that show wealth in this chapter include the clothing that everyone wears which is made of expensive materials and jewels. The newly polished interior of the house and the fancy carriages.
2) When Jane leaves the drawing rooom, Rochester leaves his guest to follow Jane. He then asks what is wrong with her and why she is depressed and telling her that he wants to see her in the drawing room every night until his guest leaves. His concern for her feelings show that he care of her, and the fact that he followed her. Another person he would not of done this. 3) Is Jane's critical description of Blanche and her family and friends accurate? Why or why not?
4) Describe Jane's feelings for Rochester at this point. 3) Jane thinks that from their appearance they all seem rude and cruel much like Mrs. Reed who belongs to the same social class as these people.

6) How does Rochester react to Jane's presence in the drawing room?
7) What does he do when he slips out? 5) Jane isn't the most attractive women and in a room full of rich, pretty women, this comment was obviously directed towards Jane and also she is always judged on her appearence. For once she wants to be judged on her intelligence, but no one takes the time to see what's beneath the surface.
6) He never acknowledges that she is there until she leaves. He then goes out and follows her.
7) He finds Jane and ask her why she didn't come speak to him in the room and why she is so depressed. He knows she is depressed be cause he says, "a few more words would bring tears to your eyes." Quote: "...rallying my wits, and recollecting my principles, I at once called my sensations to order..."
