Brontë's Depiction of Women in Jane Eyre

- In Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë uses the female characters to convey her views on Victorian conventions of womanhood. She does this initially by using first-person narrative to help us see the characters in their true form.

During the period Jane Eyre was set, the 1840's, it was conventional that women were inferior to men and were not entitled to their own opinions or freedom of mind....   [tags: essays research papers]
