Jane Eyre Teaching Unit
Excerpt From this Document
- Discuss the various types of first-person narration and the reason Brontë occasionally employs more than one narrator in this novel.
- The introduction states, “The narrative is compelling and moving as a work of romantic fiction. Following the classic trajectory of that form the heroine moves from isolation through trials and complications towards marriage as an ideal resolution.” Trace the incidents in the story that show this is an example of romantic fiction.
- Review the definition of a symbol. In Jane’s dreams, what do “light,” the “child,” and the “chestnut-tree” symbolize?
- How does the author use foreshadowing to add suspense and keep the reader’s interest?
- Discuss the author’s use of nature to mirror Jane’s life. If she is happy, the weather is great. If she is in trouble, there is a storm. Find an instance when the weather confirms to the reader that Jane has made a correct decision according to the Lord.
- In the novel, how important is physical beauty for a person’s ultimate happiness.
- Do you think Jane’s religious beliefs, which prevent her from staying with Rochester after she learns about his marriage, lead her to ultimate happiness or unnecessarily complicate her life?
- Jane clearly believes in premonition, signs or dreams, and sympathetic-familiar connections. Find examples of each of these in the novel.
