    A Classic Love Story

    Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is a love story that appeals to all audiences. The protagonist, Jane, is orphaned at a young age and sent to live with her Aunt Reed, who scorns her. At the tender age of 10, Jane is sent to an all girls’ boarding school and from there, begins her education which eventually lands her a job as a governess for the eccentric Edward Rochester. She begins to fall in love with the dark, cold, and abrupt master of the house. Rochester, however, has a secret that threatens to tear them apart.
    Jane Eyre can be considered to be a feminist. Unlike the other women during the Victorian Era, Jane is outspoken and independent. While she suffers through the plot’s twists and turns, she is never portrayed as a “damsel in distress” or otherwise weak; she is self-reliant. Jane does, however, fall in love with Edward Rochester. At the beginning of his character introduction, readers are able to see him as a mysterious man. He is superior to Jane in the sense that he has money and a higher social standing, and yet it is undeniable that Jane has a superior moral character. This is clearly seen when readers discover the secret Rochester is trying so desperately to hide. In contrast, St. John can be considered Rochester’s foil. Where Rochester is impulsive and unpredictable, St. John is austere and ambitious. Jane often associates him with rock, ice, and snow.
    Jane Eyre, written in the typically flow-y Victorian language, is a book that many readers will be able to relate to. Although the situations may not be representative of what a person today might deal with, the emotions that Jane experiences are ones that everyone feels and connect to.
