Andrew Salcido3rdperiodQuote Analysis1.“Reader, I married him. A quiet wedding we had; and he and I, the parson and clerk,were alone present.”During this scene of the book, Mr. Rochester is now newly blinded, giving Janedifferent independences that she did not have before. He is no longer the superiorin the relationship as he has become dependent on Jane for everyday tasks did notneed help before, because of his disability. Due to this, Jane is now seen as theone in charge of the relationship as she is now an independent woman and cancontrol her own destiny. She no longer needs to rely on Mr. Rochester on tellingher what to do as now he cannot even see. This newly independent attitude ofJane is depicted in the diction used in this quote specifically. Instead of using thephrase, “He married me,” in which Mr. Rochester is the one dominating, it is theother way around. Jane is the one who is it could be taking the male role, whichties into the theme of gender equality and behaviors the has been ongoingthroughout the book. She could be now seen almost as equally as a man is seendue to the power that she now has over Mr. Rochester in both good and badaspects. This could possibly relate to the message that “good things come to thosewho wait,” as Jane has always been the inferior person in any situation throughouther life, and now she's giving this opportunity to be superior.2.“Why I suppose you have a governess for her: I saw a person with her just now – is shegone? Oh no! There she is behind the window-curtain. You pay her, of course: I shouldthink it quite expensive, - more so; for you have them both to keep in addition…Mary andI had, I should think, a dozen at least in our day; half of them were detestable and therest ridicule, and all incubi – were they not, mama?”This quote from Miss Ingram highlights the social inequalities that were presentduring this time, especially between lower classes and higher classes. Blanche inthis section, expresses prejudice against governesses and other members of lowerclass, much like Jane herself. Instead of respecting them, and one should with anyperson, she mocks them openly without any consideration towards the servicethey do or their feelings in general. This is a case much like with Jane, who is inthe room at this time and listening to Miss Ingram talk this way to Rochester. Thisinstance of social discrimination opens the eyes to the reader of differentsituations in which people are merely judged based on their class. It is a constantthing that happens merely because of the amount of wealth that one has, and alsorelates to the attitudes of both classes as those who are of a higher class tend tosee themselves as better than others. This case of distortion relates arises thecommon issue that happens in the caste system. Individuals began to discriminateagainst one another and lead to chaos and tension between the two. This in turnresults in one class with an excessive amount of power leaving the other one atthe mercy of their own hands.
