This paper discusses Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. The focus is on the historical period during which it was written, and the social constraints by which it was bound. The author explores the themes in the book as they relate to the Matthew Arnold quote: “the writer’s mind contains nothing but hunger, rebellion, and rage…
Hunger, rebellion and rage were indeed the undercurrents that stirred the energy of Charlotte Bronte’s fiction. Although many of her contemporaries reacted with negative criticism that anyone would dare to express these passions, Charlotte Bronte found a significant number of hungry readers eager to devour her courageous words. These very real passions, alive in the author’s own existence, underlie the fictional existence of her character Jane Eyre.”
