The major episodes involving psychic interventions and telepathy come in other chapters of Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre. There is, however, one suggestive passage in Chapter 10. Once Miss Temple has announced she is leaving the school, Jane determines that she too must move on. She describes herself as thinking chaotically and feverishly and unable to come to any conclusion about what she should do. Then she describes the experience of finding the solution in terms of a “kind fairy” dropping the suggestion about advertising on her pillow, and portrays her mental questions about advertising being answered by an outside agency, that gave replies to her internal questionings and supplied answers about things with which she was unacquainted.
