What were some examples of Victorian ideals in Jane Eyre?Specifically through Bronte's use of justice (whether good or bad), religion, importance of the family, and morality.
My answer would be as follows:
The Victorian era (from a literary point of view) is truly enthralling since it presents an infinite repertoire of different forms and topics. Nonetheless, and despite this many-sided character, I will try to set forth a possible interpretation of this era. The Victorian literature can be characterized by a strong insistence on:
- domestic happiness
- religious observance (this list in incomplete)
We can assert that Jane Eyre is a Bildungsroman, belongs to the Victorian era but also to the Romantic era.
That's why I think that Jane Eyre is many-faceted.
I hope it will be helpful.
