Maurin Huq Period 1 AP English Jane Eyre: Essay In every work of literature there is a journey and an adventure that plays an important role in the development and growth of a literary character. Often times, certain events take a literary character by surprise, and force him to choose the right path. The decision however, is not always easy, and characters struggle to make the right decision. In Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre, the main character is thrust into a predicament that makes little rational sense. Jane Eyre, is forced to make a very difficult decision; either concede to the situations absurdity or take actions that defy it. It is evident, that the struggle and the decision of Jane Eyre , not only shaped her as a person, but also contributed to the meaning of the work as a whole. ...read more.

During the wedding, before the couple promised each other their love and fidelity, it became evident that Mr. Rochester was already married, and that his wife , was still alive. Jane was horror struck, confused, and felt that the man she truly loved had been lying to her all along.

Jane's decision of leaving Mr. Rochester shaped to a great extent the meaning of the work. Primarily, it showed that in life we must accept the good with the bad and persevere even when things are not always perfect. It showed the reader, that in life, things happen for a reason. After Jane returned to Mr. Rochester, she realized how much she loved him and how much he loved her. Their separation made them strong not necessarily physically, but rather emotionally.
