St. John gives Jane a job as a teacher in the nearby village, and as he plans to go to India to be a missionary, asks Jane to marry him so she can come too. Jane, not being in love with St. John, refuses, and decides to go back to Mr. Rochester.

After saving Rochester, Jane realizes that she loves him but is too proud to confess her feelings.

Mrs. Reed, Jane's former caretaker, sends for Jane as she is on her deathbed. She admits to Jane that once a John Eyre, some relative of Jane's, offered to adopt the girl, but Mrs. Reed maliciously lied that Jane had died in the typhoid epidemic that affected Lowood.

Jane Eyre mother figures?

One mother figure is Miss Temple, the headmistress of LowoodInstitution and later her friend, when Jane Eyre became a youngadult. Miss Temple married and left Lowood, which caused Janeimmediately to feel so lonely that she began to think of leavingand changing her situation. Mrs. Fairfax, the housekeeper at Thornfield Hall, might also beseen as a mother figure. Jane respected her, valued her opinionsand judgment, and enjoyed her companionship, especially in theearly days of her employment there. Much later in the story, the old servant Hannah might even be seenas a mother figure, because she took that role with the Riverschildren after their own mother died, and she also became very fondof Jane once she accepted her as a member of their family. Another mother figure is the moon. I know that sounds unlikely, butI'll explain how this is true. First let's look at a quote fromJane Eyre: I lifted up my head to look: the roof resolved. to clouds, high and dim; the gleam was such as the moon. imparts to vapours she is about to sever. I watched her come-. watched with the strangest anticipation; as though some word. of doom were to be written on her disk. She broke forth as. never moon yet burst from cloud: a hand first penetrated the. sable folds and waved them away; then, not a moon, but a. white human form shone in the azure, inclining a glorious. brow earthward. It gazed and gazed on me. It spoke to my. spirit: immeasurably distant was the tone, yet so near, itwhispered. in my heart-. "My daughter, flee temptation.". "Mother, I will." (Jane Eyre ch. 27). Now let's look at what makes the moon a motherly figure.. The real 'motherly figure' that the moon is representing is mostlikely her real mother, who Jane has no true memory of herappearance. The 'moon' she sees in the dream may be interpreted asguidance from her dead mother, as she gives Jane advice. It wouldmost definitely fit in with the supernatural aspect of the book.Also how she the 'moon' calls Jane daughter and Jane calls the'moon' mother. That could mean that the 'moon' is actually Jane'smother, not just a figurative 'mother'..

Is Jane Eyre a realistic book?

By the standards of its time, yes. but the story could not happen today. Jane would have gotten suspicious and using a device invented by one Alexander G.

What is the main conflict of Jane Eyre?

In the book Jane Eyre, one of the main points of the book is also Jane Eyre's largest conflict. This conflict was not with others, but with herself and her culture. Jane Eyre believed that she and God were the only ones that could determine where she would go in life. Her society believed that social-class meant and determined everything - including who you will marry and spend the rest of your life with. She felt that this was wrong and that people should not be displayed solely by their appearance or by their economic-status but by their individual worth. Throughout the novel she defied the Victorian Era's ideals. When she finally found true love with Mr. Rochester, she knew that she had to separate from him because he was acting immorally in her eyes. Even though Jane discovered something that would bring her much pleasure, she turned away from what she knew was wrong. This displays Jane's character, one that believes in morals and what is correct rather than what would please her or her culture the most. Other examples are when Jane left Lowood School and the school near Moor House. Despite her comfort there, she knew she had to leave for greater purposes. The last example is that Jane worked for what she needed. Instead of marrying off to a rich man, she earned a living for herself. This example displays that Jane believed in doing was what right and in working hard. What a reader of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre may learn from her book is that true love, real happiness, and complete morals are what life is made of. Bronte depicts people of the Victorian Era as empty and incomplete, because they are focused on wealth and appearance. She rises up against her culture's "perfectness" and says that it is false, no matter what the consequences were to herself.
