GNED 1300-4 Women in Victorian Society Jane Eyre Study and Discussion Questions, Chs. 11-20 1. When Jane decides to leave Lowood, she prays for “liberty,” or “at least a new servitude.” At Thornfield, she settles into her new job but is not completely contented. Go to the passage in Ch.12 that begins “Anybody may blame me who likes” and ends with “necessary for their sex” (pp. 100-101 in the Bantam edition). What does Jane claim is necessary for a meaningful existence? How does this relate to the Victorian ideals of “separate spheres” and “the angel in the house”? 2. Jane and Mr. Rochester converse in Ch.13. Describe their conversation. How does he treat her? What does this nearly initial encounter suggest about what the relationship between them will be? 3. In. Ch.14, Rochester tells Jane about himself. How would you describe him? What do you think of him so far? 4. Some early readers of Jane Eyre were shocked by the story Rochester tells Jane in Ch. 15. How does Jane respond to the story? Why is she not shocked?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
