Compare contrast Jane Eyre bertha mason to what extent can you justify the view that bertha is the other half of Jane?
Bertha Mason, from a Jungian point of view is Jane Eyre's archetypal shadow. The loud, subversive, and sexually wanton "bad" Bertha is a Victorian nightmare, while Jane is quiet, subservient and a virginal "good" woman. Bertha is exotic and dark, physically large uncouth, and wild Creole woman who r…ebels against societal rules. Jane is plain and small, polite, prime and proper mousey English woman.. They are the two sides of a coin, in that they both are cast in the unfortunate roles of 19th century women in a repressive male dominated society. They are both women who rail against the restrictions a patriarchal society imposes upon them.. However, as the shadow side of "woman," Bertha refuses to conform to her own peril, while Jane (who does her share of little rebellions) eventually bows to society's rules and "wins" -- not only an inheritance but her man -- thus securing her a more equal position in society.

In the book, the title character is a plain, quiet orphan who lives with her wealthy but cruel aunt and cousins, who torment her to no end. At a young age, she is practically disowned by he…r spiteful aunt and sent to a cold, disease-ridden boarding school, where she soon finds that she has a love of learning. By the time she turns eighteen, she is a teacher at the boarding school, and decides to find a job as a governess, which is basically a mix between a tutor and nanny that lived with the child's family. She is hired by a woman named Mrs. Fairfax, and moves into Thornfield Hall, the ominous estate her student, a little French girl names Adele, lives in. She learns that Mrs. Fairfax is the housekeeper, and that Adele the ward of the master of the house, the mysterious and rich Mr. Rochester. At first, Mr. Rochester strikes Jane as brooding and cruel, but as the two grow closer to one another, she and her employer begin to fall in love. He proposes, but on the day of the wedding, it is revealed that he is already married to a woman her does not love who went insane, and to keep her out of a mental asylum, where she would be mistreated, he stowed her away in the attic of Thornfield Hall. Jane, heartbroken, runs away from Thornfield Hall, where after weeks of wandering without food, money, or water, she is taken in by a family consisting of two sisters, Diana and Mary, and their stoic older brother, St. John. 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. She finds out that there was a fire at Thornfield Hall, and that in this fire Mr. Rochester's wife died, not to mention he lost his sight. She finds his new home, and after reconciling, they get married and live happily ever after. It's a really good book, one of my favorites, and I recommend you read it. (MORE)

They are equally grammatically correct. Where 'I' would be correct (subject of verb) 'Jane and I' will obviously be correct. Where 'me' would be correct (object of verb) 'Jane and me' will obviously be correct. 'I am going shopping.' 'Jane and I are going shopping.' 'He gave the money to me.…' 'He gave the money to Jane and me.' Barbarisms such as 'He gave the money to Jane and I' result from a misunderstanding of the instruction given to children to say 'Jane and I are going out' rather than 'Me and Jane are going out' or 'Jane and me are going out.' Yes, you should say 'Jane and I are going out', because 'Jane and I' is the subject of the verb 'are going'. It's very, very simple. Just leave out the 'Jane' and see what you would say. Would you say 'He gave the money to I'? No, you wouldn't. You would say 'He gave the money to me.' (MORE)

Both of the following quote come from 'the neglected book page' website. Peter Brooke , who directed the 1963 movie version of Lord of the Flies said... It's a British novel from 1960s about three adolescent boys who kidnap a boy and keep him in a cave in a quarry. It's been compared to Lord of th…e Flies. It got great reviews when it came out. I've just finished it and thought it was extremely well done. But a real enigma. I can't figure out what it is really about except perhaps the breakdown of society. Richard Freeman , in the Saturday Review ... â¦ is an allegory with a variety of more or less cosmic overtones. The action takes place not in a normal, pastoral English summer, but in an arid wasteland during a fierce heat wave. Images of darkness and light are strewn about and the cave is philosophically associated with the one in Plato's Republic. The victim, especially, is given much symbolic weight to bear as a universal scapegoatâ¦. Ultimately, the book is about the complex symbiosis between prosecutor and prey. If Quarry is less richly imagined than Lord of the Flies and lacks its verbal distinction, it is nevertheless an extraordinarily assured first novel, and is even superior to Golding's in its control of allegory, the bare bones of which are less frequently allowed to obtrude.
