Extracts from this document...


Jane Eyre You can't judge a book by it's cover. In Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, we meet Jane Eyre, who finds her true love to be someone she is not attracted to. Jane is attracted to people who contain the same intellectual capacity as her, and has no regard for those who have only beauty and money to give. After attending an all girls seminary until she reached the age of eighteen, Jane advertises for a job as a governess, and receives one at an estate named Thornfield. This is where she meets, Rochester, the owner of the mansion, and her true love. ...read more.


Jane understands that to have a true and loving relationship with someone, that both must have not looks, but a similarity in thought, and a like for the other's personality.

It is because of Jane's decision to leave St. John due to a lack of soul likeness that allows her to marry someone for their personality.

When people fall in love with people for their personalities, the love is stronger and it will last longer. ...read more.
