Themes and Symbols:  Themes and Symbols Click on each of the buttons. When we have explored all of them, try the practice question. Love Social Class Empire Mother Figures Religion Bertha Mason Red Room Practice Question Love:  Love Jane is constantly in a search for love. She is searches for romantic love in Rochester, motherly love through Miss Temple, Bessie Lee, or Mrs. Fairfax, and friendship through the Rivers sisters, Helen Burns, and Rochester. Jane’s search for love might stem from the scorn she felt as a child Social Class:  Social Class Jane often feels inadequate compared to many of the other main characters in the novel. Jane feels that her love for Rochester is wrong because she isn’t from the same class. Class segregates Jane from her cousins on both sides, although it is more obvious on the Reed side Blanche Ingram is the class opposite of Jane. Religion:  Religion Religion plays a huge role in this novel Helen Burns taught Jane a view of faith and God that she could understand. Mr. Brocklehurst’s Evangelical view had negative effects on Jane, as did St. John River’s Empirical view. Even the once cruel Eliza Reed joins a French convent. Empire:  Empire Written during the Victorian Era in England, Jane Eyre depicts a negative image of the Empire and the Orient. There is a constant threat of the outside (India, Ireland, Jamaica) that frightens Jane. Bertha (as the antithesis of Jane) is the perfect image of the Orient. Mother Figures:  Mother Figures In her search for love, Jane also looks for the mother figure that missed as a child. Jane finds the characteristics she is looking for in: Bessie Lee Miss Temple Mrs. Fairfax Rivers sisters Bertha Mason:  Bertha Mason Bertha is the antithesis of Jane. Her Creole heritage, and sexual and sensual nature personify the Orient. This personification is emphasized with her wild nature, insanity, and evil acts. Bertha expresses all the things that that Jane must keep to herself. Red Room:  Red Room The room at Gateshead where Uncle Reed died, and where Jane was locked up to be punished. This punishment haunted Jane for the rest of her life. Memories of the night in the Red Room occur when Jane is at a crossroads in her life. Practice Question #3:  Practice Question #3 Besides the Red Room, what room is Jane fearful of? Lowood School Room Her Bedroom at Thornfield Attic at Thornfield Rochester’s Bedroom Try Again:  Try Again Great!:  Great! Because she often hears Bertha’s eerie laugh coming from the attic, Jane is fearful of that room. Quiz:  Quiz Answer each of the questions to the best of your ability.
