This paper attempts to penetrate the linguistic gloom and negativity which pervades the novel Jane Eyre through deaths and disappointments on the protagonist's personal journey to the dénouement. Despite linguistic negatives and negatively presented images of children, the novel also contains inspiring, heavenly visitations of the moon surveying winged creatures, fairies, birds or angels, which richly leaven the text, piercing the gloom of the prevailing atmosphere of negativity against which the narrative is set.
Act of Survival: The Revision of Brontë's Jane Eyre in Jean Rhys' Wide Sargasso Sea
Arab Journal for the Humanities . Winter2017, Vol. 34 Issue 137, p283-333. 18p.
J. Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea invites us to revisit the sombre truth that women's literary works were once, and still perhaps are, misread, misjudged, misinterpreted. This has led some feminist writers to resort to 'revision' as an 'act of survival'. Revision calls for women to look back 'with fresh eyes' to redefine and reread old texts from a fresh critical angle. The present paper develops the idea, attempting to re-examine Jane Eyre within Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea in terms of a kind of mysterious kinetics of de jà vu. The paper will explore the idea of revision in these two important women's literary works.
Manifestations of Jane Eyre’s SubconsciousAtour Isaac Michael
Anglisticum, Vol 6, No 1 (2017)
Charlotte Brontë (1816-1855) is an English writer whose life has affected her writings especially in the story of Jane Eyre (1847). In this novel, we have a young woman who faces and then overcomes different obstacles in her journey to maturity and satisfaction. Charlotte in this novel depicts glances from her own and her sisters’ lives. This research deals with the symbolic nature of the story interpreted through the use of “dreams” and their significance as a tool used by the authoress to reveal the inner world of her heroine adding a depth to our understanding of the novel. The research is divided into two sections and a conclusion. Section one is an introductory section devoted to Charlotte Brontë the woman behind the image of Jane Eyre, and the reasons why this novel was a success. Section two covers the meaning and significance of Jane Eyre’s dreams. This section is divided into six parts each of which deals with one or more of the heroine’s dreams. The research ends with a conclusion where the results are stated.
