wicked girl with great frequency. She threatened Jane with promises of Hell and suffering for such an unwholesome girl. Jane may have had her own idea about religion and God. Perhaps she found the marriage acceptable, but would not allow herself to part with the teachings she had become some familiarized with and used to identify herself. When contemplating Mr. Rochester’s offer she almost accepts it, but fears her acquiescence would ruin everything she believed in and make the entire union a hollow travesty. She may have even chosen to reject Rochester because she wanted to obey the laws of England. Perhaps the idea of breaking the marriage laws of England would cause her to think of herself as a common thief or criminal. The reason Jane gives for choosing to leave Rochester is not one to be accepted without hesitation. One must remember that a human being is telling the tale. A human being with feelings, weaknesses and opinions. The story of Jane Eyre is not told by an omnipotent impartial observer, but by a woman looking ten years back at what her life was or what she hoped or wished it to be.

    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.
