‘Jane Eyre’ Essay

(0)
This essay is based on Charlotte Brontë’s ‘Jane Eyre’. It would be helpful to A Level students studying ‘Jane Eyre’. It is approximately 2,237 words long and 5 pages in length. The essay answers the following question: A novel of “rage and rebellion” to one of its contemporary reviewers, there sometimes seem to be as many Jane Eyres as there have been new generations and constituencies of readers. Post war feminist criticism has argued about whether it is a parable of women’s resistance to male domination, or a richly historical story about empire, class, race and nation. Can Jane Eyre be both of these, and a romance too? Support your argument with close textual analysis. For more learning resources, please visit Poetry Essay’s website.
