  • Compare the presentation of childhood in

    "In conclusion; neither books could be said to deal with childhood as a central theme, but inclusion of the protagonists' childhood as hefty sections of prose in each novel is a deliberate and necessary addition by the authors, serving the overall message of each text. Primarily children offer a perspective of innocence through which Dickens and Bronte can portray the adult world and its hypocrisy with a view untainted by the preconceptions and expectations of adults. Frequently this technique is used to the detriment of those less admirable adult characters (Mr Brocklehurst, Mr Wopsle, Mrs Reed, Mr Pumblechook, Mrs Gargery, and the list goes on), but it is also used to illuminate those good adult characters (Mr Joe, Mr Lloyd, Mrs Temple, and others). Also childhood is the first constituent of the identity of our protagonists. Pip's childhood is pivotal in the creation of his identity, which becomes so thematically important later in "Great Expectations". Also, Jane's moral conviction to honesty and justice can be traced back to her mistreatment in childhood, and knowing of her childhood allows the reader to see in context her later actions, and so her identity.

  • Considering in detail one or two passages - discuss the presentation and significance of Jane's relationship with St

    "In conclusion the main significance of this part is to show how far Jane has come in terms of growing up and realising what is right and what she wants for herself. She has learnt that she should put herself first when it comes to marriage and things, which concern her majorly. It also shows how the relationship between St John and Jane is a distant one due to their conflict of interests. However I feel that the main point is to show how far Jane has become and how much she has learnt from her previous encounters."

  • Is Charlotte Bront successful in creating a typical Victorian heroine? Discuss with close reference to key episodes. Jane Eyre was written by Charlotte Bront under the male pseudonym,

    "Although Charlotte Brontë lived in an era of the traditional Victorian heroines, Jane's character is unusual because she posses heroic qualities, but not those of the typical Victorian heroine. For example, she rescues Rochester twice, once from the fire and the second time when he is helpless at Ferndean. A heroine in Victorian times would not be expected to salvage the hero, but it would rather be the other way around. On marrying Rochester when he is blind, Jane puts his needs before her own, which shows heroic qualities. Indeed, there are elements of the gothic heroine in Jane since she is strong and emotional in relation to her love with Rochester, which never changes with her changing conditions in life. In my opinion, Charlotte Brontë is successful in creating not a typical, but a unique, innovative heroine for the Victorian reader."
