Suffering and Injustice in the Opening Chapters of Charlotte BrontÃÂ«Ã¢â¬â¢s J
Suffering and Injustice in the Opening Chapters of Charlotte Bronts Jane EyreAt the time the novel Jane Eyre was written, it was very difficult forwomen writers to pick out their books published. Charlotte Bront was very conscious of the problem, and cleverly changed her name to Currer Bell sothe book would be accepted. as luck would have it for Charlotte, her novel Jane Eyrewas published in October 1847, and since writing this novel, CharlotteBront has become very popular, and a classic author.The straightlaced era was a time of peachy complaisant division between the wealthy and the poor, and this is shown in the novel by the comment ofcertain vulcanized fibers for example Bessie the poorer class, and Mrs. vibrating reed the richer class. The poorer classes and working classes were make towork in very dangerous conditions and were paid very little. In contrast,many of the upper classes did not have to work, and some of thememployed the poor to work for them. many an(pren ominal) of the poorer families livedcramped together in very small houses, where as the rich lived in huge,very comfortable homes. This background of injustice is made exonerated inthe book, as Charlotte Bront wanted to highlight what life was like forJane Eyre, the Reed family and servants like her character Bessie whoworked in the wealthy house in Victorian times. Charlotte Brontn seemsas though she feels quite strongly about these issues - some(prenominal) ofCharlottes elder sisters died in 1825 in circumstances that have greatimportance for the story Jane Eyre - and is trying to convey to the endorsers of her book the many injustices and extremes in Victorian society.Charlotte Bront wrote the book Jane Eyre in first personnarrative so we can feel Janes outmost thoughts, opinion... ...e characterof Jane Eyre, and if she had been the slightest bit divers(prenominal) I would nothave this opinion of her. At parts she has made me laugh, and other partsbrought a tear to my eye. I feel for her, as she does not have any family,and because of this has suffered greatly. From the way Charlotte hasevoked Janes feelings, the reader is able to understand what it is like,and the emotions you feel. Jane Eyre is a very determined ten-year-oldgirl with a great personality, and Charlotte Bront could not have used abetter character on which to base the novel. She is definitely myfavourite character in the book, in the main because of her determination andpride. The book of Jane Eyre has many life changing decisions, and I havesometimes wondered if it was me that had to make those choices,whether they would have been as successful as they were for Jane.
