Heathcliff in Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights: Devil or a Wronged HeroRishav Jamwal, Department of CSE, Baddi University Baddi, Himachal Pradesh, India
International Journal of English Language, Literature and Translation Studies, Vol.2.Issue.1.,2015
Heathcliff has been a point of debate and discussion since its oeuvre, however, none has come forward with a satisfactory explanation of his persona. The question of Heathcliff being a wronged hero or a character with sinister and sadistic overtones remains unanswered till today. The present paper portrays the character of Heathcliff as a symbolic representation of society corrupting the natural goodness in humans . His character is a manifestation of a staunch portrayal of love, a cut- throat criticism of society and a perceptive and trenchant exploration of humanity.
Jane Eyre searching for belongingGalal Suliman
International Journal of English and Literature, Vol.6(2), pp. 23-30 , February 2015
This paper tackles Jane Eyre's journey to get belonging. This journey passes five phases. The paper is not going to focus on these chronological phases in details or highlight on them. The major task of the researcher is to discuss two major points: Jane's consistent endeavors to have belonging and the moral stance of Jane to achieve this purpose. These two points will give the researcher a convenient chance to manipulate such characters as Rochester and Bertha. The researcher will try to expose Charlotte Brontë's conventionality, which is so obvious in tacking many crucial situations, particularly among Jane, Bertha and Rochester. The researcher’s interest is to show which goal Jane dreams to achieve: love or autonomy? That is why he is not going to defend Bronte as a feminist. Yes, she tried to expose the social diseases in her nineteenth- century British society. But the problem is with Brontë herself, for she has no rebellious character. It is left for the reader to decide which character is Charlotte Brontë: a feminist or a traditional writer?
The Depiction of True and Pure Love in Charlotte Brontë’s Jane EyreAli Albashir Mohammed Al-Haj
English Language and Literature Studies, Vol 5, No 1 (2015)
The current study aims at studying true and pure love in Jane Eyre. Charlotte never underestimates the power of love. In all her novels, it overcomes formidable barriers of wealth and rank, and endures through hopelessness and pain. In this story, the writer’s idea about true and pure love expressed as an independent woman who needs to be loved by a companionate couple, with some kind of’ equality between the ideal couples. Love in Charlotte’s concept is pure, perfect and true and cannot be measured by jewels, riches, wealth, or position. Also, in this story the writer attempts a more ideal scheme of marriage which without love is lifeless, hence Jane rebuffs and rejects any proposal except that of her beloved lover, Mr. Rochester.
