Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre

This paper discusses the character limitations expressed by Jane and limits of her moral sensibility in Charlotte Bronte’s `Jane Eyre.

After some time at Thornfield Jane falls in love with the owner of the house Mr. Rochester. At first Mr. Rochester often treated Jane brutally but she stood up to him and eventually gained his love. Mr. Rochester was the first person to offer Jane lasting love and a real home. Jane and Mr. Rochester became engaged but not everything was ideal. Jane never was treated as his equal because of the difference in status between the two of them; they were only equal on an intellectual level.
