Colonising Within the Marriage in Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea - Colonising Within the Marriage in Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea      Jean Rhys' complex text, Wide Sargasso Sea, came about as an attempt to re-invent an identity for Rochester's mad wife, Bertha Mason, in Jane Eyre, as Rhys felt that Bronte had totally misrepresented Creole women and the West Indies: 'why should she think Creole women are lunatics and all that. What a shame to make Rochester's wife, Bertha, the awful madwoman, and I immediately thought I'd write a story as it might really have been.' (Jean Rhys: the West Indian Novels, p144).  It is clear that Rhys wanted to reclaim a voice and a subjectivity for Bertha, the silenced Creole, and to subvert the assumptions made by the Victorian text.  She does so with startling results.  In her quest to re-instate Bertha's identity, Rhys raises issues such as the problems of colonisation, gender relations and racial issues.  She explores the themes of displacement, Creolisation and miscegenation.  However, the aim of this essay is to look at the marriage contract within the text,  its effects on the participants' sense of selfhood and its comparisons with the colonial encounter....   [tags: Wide Sargasso Sea Essays]

Portrayals of Prostitution in Jane Eyre - Portrayals of Prostitution in Jane Eyre   Bronte paints many parallels between the characters in the novel and the trade of prostitution. One of the main characters that Bronte attributes poverty to is the character of Jane. Jane’s poverty is intrinsically important to the plot of the novel because Bronte uses Jane’s poverty to allow the reader to picture Jane as a virtuous woman, such as when Jane flees from Thornfield to escape the entrapment of Rochester. The reader is urged to feel sympathy for Jane as she adheres to her strict, virtuous moral codes and does not allow herself to succumb to temptation....   [tags: Jane Eyre Essays]

Jane Eyre - Blanche Ingram: Villain. Blanche Ingram is the most important woman, other than Jane Eyre, in the novel. Arguably, she is the most important antagonist in this book. It is difficult to fathom how an absolutely horrid, conceited, venal, apathetic creature could be so vital to the book; but take her away, the motivation, conflict, and character itself crumbles. Consider this synopsais: Jane Eyre has not yet come to terms with her love with Mr. Rochester. Mr. Rochester is so infatuated with Jane that he can not contain himself and is ready to proclaim his love at any moment....   [tags: essays research papers] 690 words

Use of Elemental Imagery in Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre - Use of Elemental Imagery in Jane Eyre   The use of elemental imagery in Jane Eyre, sustained throughout the novel both metaphorically and literally, is one of Charlotte Brontë's major stylistic devices. The natural opposition of the two elements of water and fire ("the war of the earthly elements", as Jane puts it) highlights the need for the titular heroine to find equilibrium between points identified as extremes. However, as David Lodge notes, "we should be mistaken in looking for a rigidly schematic system of elemental imagery and reference in Jane Eyre"....   [tags: Jane Eyre Essays]

In the novel Jane Eyre Charlotte Bronte creates a heroine who encapsulates the very core and heart of women’s dilemma in Victorian society.

Many critics argue that the novel is simply a reflection of Bronte’s life. Furthermore, there are several ways in which, Bronte’s life is similar to the life of Jane and the events that take place in the novel....   [tags: essays research papers fc]

Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre - Seeking a Place for Life - Seeking a Place for Life in Brontë’s Jane Eyre     The best novels, like the best people, are conflicted.  Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Erye is certainly no exception.  At times, the novel seems almost at war with itself, an impression that may be explored only narrowly in this venue.  Jane Eyre navigates a complex and treacherous territory between various extremes, mapping these spaces in rich detail for her “dear reader”.   The novel unfolds on the boundary between the old, hierarchical social order of the ancient regime and the emerging autonomy of a more modern sense of self.  It undertakes various pilgrimages through places where women are struggling (with varying degrees of success) to claim a meaningful freedom while living under the decisions of now-absent men.  Perhaps most urgently, it seeks a fertile ground between hopeless extremes of human possibility – between passion (the “dark” madness of Bertha Mason) and reason (the logocentric rationalism of St....   [tags: Jane Eyre Essays]
