Use of Weather in Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre

- Use of Weather in Jane Eyre In the novel Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, good weather is Bronte’s tool to foreshadow positive events or moods and poor weather is her tool for setting the tone for negative events or moods. This technique is exercised throughout the entire novel, alerting the readers of the upcoming atmosphere. In the novel, Jane’s mood is, to a degree, determined by the weather mentioned. For example, after Jane was publicly and falsely accused of being a liar by Mr. Brocklehurst, an upcoming positive event was predicted when Jane described her surroundings, “Some heavy clouds swept from the sky by a rising wind, had left the moon bare; and her light streaming in thro...   [tags: Jane Eyre Essays]

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]

However, it should also be noted that the characteristics attributed to fire and water have alternately positive and negative implications -- to cite an example among many, near the beginning of the novel, reference is made to the devastating effects of water ("ceaseless rain sweeping away wildly", "death-white realm" [i.e....   [tags: Jane Eyre Essays]

In “Beowulf: The Monsters and the Critics” Tolkien states:    We must dismiss, of course, from mind the notion that Beowulf is a “narrative poem,” that it tells a tale or intends to tell a tale sequentially....   [tags: Epic of Beowulf Essay]

Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre - A Romantic Ending In An Anti-Romantic Novel

- Jane Eyre - A Romantic Ending In An Anti-Romantic Novel This paper discusses the ending of Jane Eyre, discussing whether it is a “good” ending.

Analysis of the Elegy, In Memory of W.B. Yeats

- In his elegy, “In Memory of W.B. Yeats,” written in 1939, English poet W.H. Auden asserted that “poetry makes nothing happen.” He went on: “it survives / In the valley of its saying where executives / Would never want to tamper …” The studied ambiguity of Auden’s lines makes it possible to read his meaning in a variety of ways. Mourning the death of a fellow poet, Auden may be lamenting the ultimate futility of Yeats’ life and art (and by implication his own). What could be less relevant to the world of “executives” and meaningful action or social change than poetry....   [tags: W.H. Auden English Poetry]
