  • Jane And Mr Rochester
    2,080 words
    Jane Eyre is a feminist novel. A feminist is a person whose beliefs and behavior are based on feminism (belief in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes). Jane Eyre is clearly a critique of assumptions about both gender and social class. It contains a strong feminist stance; it speaks to deep, timeless human urges and fears, using the principles of literature to chart the mind's recesses. Thus, Jane Eyre is an epitome of femininity - a young independent individual steadfast in...

    504 words
    Jane Eyre is set during the Victorian period, at a time where a women's role in society was restrictive and repressive and class differences distinct.

Jane's plight...
  • Positive Mood Of Jane
    563 words
    In Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, good weather is Bronte's tool to foreshadow positive events or moods and poor weather is the tool to set the tone for negative events or moods. This technique is exercised throughout the entire novel, alerting the readers of any up coming atmosphere. In the novel, Jane's mood was, to a degree, determined by the weather mentioned. For example, after Jane was publicly, falsely accused of being a liar by Mr. Brocklehurst, an upcoming positive event was predicted wh...

    ... r novels, though she was aware of contemporary debates on the subject. Mansfield Park was one of only two of Jane Austen's novels to be revised by her after its first publication, when a second edition came out in 1816 (this second edition was a failure in terms of sales).

This deviation from restraint, clarity, and reason resulted in...
  • Character In A Jane Austen Novel
    1,091 words
    Feminism in Jane Austen'I often wonder how you can find time for what you do, in addition to the care of the house; and how good Mrs. West could have written such books and collected so many hard works, with all her family cares, is still more a matter of astonishment! Composition seems to me impossible with a head full of joints of mutton and doses of rhubarb. ' -- Jane Austen, letter of September 8 1816 to Cassandra'I will only add in justice to men, that though to the larger and more trifling...

  • Mansfield Park This Novel
    372 words
    Mansfield Park This novel, originally published in 1814, is the first of Jane Austen's novels not to be a revised version of one of her pre-1800 writings. Mansfield Park has sometimes been considered atypical of Jane Austen, as being solemn and moralistic, especially when contrasted with the immediately preceding Pride and Prejudice and the immediately following Emma. Poor Fanny Price is brought up at Mansfield Park with her rich uncle and aunt, where only her cousin Edmund helps her with the di...
  • Bildungsroman Of Jane Eyre
    523 words
    Jane Eyre is one of the most complex novels of the mid-nineteenth century, offering more than progressive political content and trenchant social observation. Modern readings of Jane Eyre, however, tend to focus on these aspects, often to the neglect of the novel's many other excellent qualities. Jane Eyre's most striking feature is its heroine, who narrates the book approximately ten years after the events of the story take place. (In fact, the first edition of Jane Eyre claimed to be an autobio...
  • Jane Bennet And Charles Bingley
    542 words
    Jane Austen's novel about the upper-middle class of English society, Pride and Prejudice, was originally entitled First Impressions. The aptness of this original title is accentuated by the appreciation of how Jane Austen makes the reader aware of the temperaments and personalities of each of the characters. She does this by using each character's external social behavior as an indication of the internal moral and psychological condition of that character. At the introduction of every character,...

    Both novels are variations of the same theme: the spiritual and emotional growth of the heroine.

Bronte uses Jane as a figure of female independence, while Walker demonstrates her views on civil rights and commitment to feminism through Celie. In this essay I will be examining the traumatic journeys that both Jane and Celie go through, to find their eventual happines...

  • Emotions Between Mr Rochester And Jane
    796 words
    Feminism in Jane Erye Feminism is a very contradictory theme throughout literary history. It does not have to be seen as a complete rebellion against men, but can simply represent intelligence and self-worth in a female. This philosophy is shown in many of the works of Charlotte Bronte. She uses independence as a "keynote in her thinking about her own life and the life of all unmarried women" (Ewbank 157). One such work is Jane Erye. In this novel Charlotte Bronte personifies her philosophy thro...
  • Lydia As Foolish As Mrs Bennet
    2,243 words
    In the simplest terms, one can define feminism as the advocacy of women for equal rights with men. Although it is a process that is mostly political, it has been noted that this movement had its roots long before the twentieth century, when it gathered political momentum. Indeed, it was first felt in the literary world with writers like Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797), who presented a rather new perspective to the life of women. Like other feminists, she understood and complained about all the w...
