English jane eyre essay on her madness

Extracts from this document...


Madness Introduction Madness in this story has been portrayed through Bertha Mason. During the whole of the story Bertha has not been heard of or even her madness, how ever the only thing in which gives us a clue to something suspicious is going on is the weird actions of Mr Rochester the bizarre event on when "as preternatural laugh as any I ever heard" hears " or is involved in for example when she is looking after some one who is in a bad state but has no idea of who or what happen to this unknown guess. The burning of Rochester's chambers is another outrageously unusual event and only Jane the innocent girl is there to help yet again. Throughout the whole of the play the tension is at a high as we now there is something going on but unsure to what exactly it is also Jane is worried as well "my pulse stopped: my heart stood still;" we only wait to the end when all are questions are answered. Madness defined: lunacy: obsolete terms for legal insanity. Jane's tour around the house Jane's tour around the house is very spooky in a sentence because as she approaches the house the author uses the whether to create ...read more.


Nishan Jones Ruining Jane's wedding veil The ripping of Jane's veil implicates that who ever did it must have some hatred of Jane but really who would rip some ones veil? No one would no one apart from some one who is mad. A veil is part of a dress you wear on your wedding day "rent it in two parts" and a wedding day is said to be the most beautiful days "and flinging both to the ground" of some ones life and who in the right mind ruin something like that "trampled on them", the only answer is a mad person. The description Jane gave "a women, tall and large, with thick and dark hair hanging long down her back" however these description sound of someone perfectly normal, on the other hand it changes to a vivid description of someone who is vampire like and mad. "Red eyes and the fearful blackened inflation of the lineaments". Also descriptions of someone who has been beaten up or retrained for having a mad fit. "Lips swelled and dark; the brow furrowed". Then the unknown individual according to Jane started to act weird. ...read more.


Mr Rochester must not see this and must see this as insanity at its worse. My personal opinion is that I don't think the fire is linked with madness I think it is linked with passion and I think that Bertha deeply loved Rochester but he didn't realise that and blamed all Bertha's actions on madness. By Nishan Jones My Conclusion I think that the attack on mason was a definite portray of madness because the way she attacked him "she bit me" this is a clear sign of madness for a woman to bite another human is crazy I understand if she slapped him but to bite him is almost savage dog like and dogs are associated with crazy and crazy is associated with mad. "She worried me like a tigress" this is madly insane for a guy to get scared by his own sister in such a crazy way that he associates her with a tigress, this clear implicates she's because to worry some one like a tigress shows she is wild and yet again will replicates mad. "She sucked the blood" only vampires do such things for a woman to do this is a next level because why do you suck blood this obvious that she has madness because you have to be mad to suck another humans blood. ...read more.
