The Use of Settings in Jane Eyre by Charlotte BrontÃÂ« Essay -- Charlott
The Use of Settings in Jane Eyre by Charlotte BrontIn this essay, I will be examining ternary different locations used inCharlotte Bronts novel Jane Eyre and discussing their uses towardsthe story. The tether settings I am to consider are the red- path atGateshead Hall, Lowood Institution where Jane attends school, andJanes first sight at Thornfield Hall the house in which she becomes assiduous as a Governess.The first setting I am qualifying to discuss is the red-room at GatesheadHall. Gateshead is the house in which Jane lives as a sister after bothher parents die. Jane is sent there to live with her Uncle and hisfamily. Her Uncle dies shortly after her arrival and so she is leftwith her wicked Aunt Reed and her three cousins. Jane is sent to thered-room as a punishment, following an incident where John throws abook at her and she retaliates as he continues to physically bullyher. The room itself is describedSquare chamber, very seldom slept in and this room happens to beone of the largest and stateliest chambers in the mansionThe room is non-surprisingly dominated with the act upon red. Thefurniture is made from deep polished mahogany, the walls were a soft cozy up colour with a blush of pink in it and the curtains draped roughthe four-poster bed were red. We soon find out that this room was in occurrence the room where Uncle Reed had died.It was in this chamber he had breathed his stick out here he lay instate hence his lay was borne by the undertakers men and, sincethat day, a sense of dreary consecration had guarded it from frequentintrusionJane becomes extremely frightened by the solid sinister atmosphere ofthe room, and worsens her state of mind with the minds ... ...tory would be entirely different. They throttle thereader interested, non only in the story, but also in Jane. The readergrows to love Jane as a strong and brave fibre and I enjoyedseeing how she managed to cope with such difficult situations. Ithought it was interesting to fi nd out that when Bront firstpublished the book Jane Eyre, she was not permitted to publish underher female list. She had to create a male name for herself. I thinkits a shame that Bront was not given up credit as the true author, butthankfully the system has changed now, although you whitethorn have noticedthat the policy has not been completely abolished. Joanne Rowling,author of chafe Potter, had her name initialised to J.K Rowling, asnot to deter male readers from reading it. whole in all, I reallyenjoyed reading and analysing Charlotte Bronts infamous novel, JaneEyre.
