The book I chose to read was Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë which is set in the 19th century and is based in four main settings; The Reed Manor and Lowood school where her childhood homes, Thornfield Manor where she’s introduced to Edward Rochester as a governess to Adele and Moor House where she finds her relatives on her paternal side. The novel begins when Jane was a dependant child who was in the care of her cruel aunt and cousins who did not love her. Jane was then sent to Lowood school where the conditions were extremely poor but was still able to make friends and carry on her education and as she grows into adulthood, she is brought unto staff at Thornfield Manor under the mysterious Mr Rochester, in order to govern Adele. After meeting Rochester under odd circumstances, Jane becomes very intrigued by him and later, these feelings of curiosity develops in to feelings of love and we presume the feeling is mutual. Secrets are later revealed that put their relationship at risk and helps Jane to be an independent woman. I think that Charlotte Brontë was trying to get across serious issues like relationship between men and women, relationship with children, the meaning of true love but especially the theme of social class. Jane was poor but with wealthy environments such as the Reed Manor and Thornfield Manor. Her poverty causes her to be insecure which denies her later opportunities. Blanche Ingram is Jane’s competition for Rochester’s love in her opinion because of her beauty and social status, but Jane is richer in character and intelligence. Jane’s stubbornness and pride
How and why are selected canonical texts re-written by female authors? Answer with close reference to Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre and Jean Rhys’s Wide Sargasso Sea.
The Sargasso Sea is a relatively still sea, lying within the south-west zone of the North Atlantic Ocean, at the centre of a swirl of warm ocean currents. Metaphorically, for Jean Rhys, it represented
an area of calm, within the wide division between England and the West Indies. Within such an area, a sense of stability…

Symbolizing the Journey
Visualize if you can a small child. She is about five years old with bouncy blonde curls that lie upon her tiny shoulders. She is kneeling over a small creature on what seems to be a deserted road. As she begins to weep uncontrollably until her little body is shaking as if she were standing on a fault line during an earthquake. If you look over her tiny shoulder a small white dog lies upon a gravel road. The dog’s eyes seem to be squinting yet all of the…
