Western Feminism Analysis of Jane Eyre from the Perspective of Equality and Independence
Luo Fei
Atenea, No 524 (2019): Issue 524

The history of a society constructed by men and women should be dominated by men and women. However, in the long process of society, women have been pushed behind the scenes of history, their consciousness has been obscured and their rights have been denied. Men's and women's survival is not accompanied by equal status. Rights are controlled by men, and through tradition, a fixed concept is formed. The protagonist of Jane Eyre, Jane Eyre, dares to oppose oppression, demand independence for equality, and hunger for knowledge. It embodies strong feminist ideas, making it the most representative new female image of the era.This article takes a female and female perspective and re-examines the established female-centered female cultural world, embodying a female-centered female subjective consciousness, and thus opens the feminist feminist literature. By analyzing the feminist elements in the works and analyzing their fundamental female causes, it is helpful to understand the influence of feminism on political, economic, and literary women, and strive to inspire and draw lessons from contemporary women's thinking.
Discourse on Creole Identity: from Ambivalence to Madness Post-Colonial Reading on Rhys’ Wide Sargasso Sea
Asep Subhan, Didimus E. Turuk
Indonesian Journal of English Language Studies Vol 5, No 1 (2019)

The portrayal of creole identity is presented in several literary works, one of them is in the portrayal of Antoinette Cosway in Jean Rhys’ Wide Sargasso Sea. Antoinette Cosway firstly is the minor character in Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre. The research traces the link between Antoinette Cosway’s creole identity with her madness. According to Bhabha’s ambivalence theory, creole identity possibly creates a new identity as the result of interrelation between colonizer and colonized. Based on the research, Antoinette Cosway failed to create a new identity and became a madwoman instead. The cause is the complex situation faced by her and the lack of supporting aspects for constructing a new identity. 
And a dissertation:
O romance "Jane Eyre" e as transposições cinematográficas de 1943 e 2011
Golze, Hadassa Grignan
Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie, 2019

The present thesis aims to analyze the relationship between Charlotte Brontë's novel Jane Eyre (1847) and Robert Stevenson's and Cary Joji Fukunaga's film adaptations of the novel, the former released in 1943 and, the latter, in 2011. Basing our analysis on Robert Stam's (2008) and Linda Hutcheon's (2006) studies on adaptations of literary texts to other media, the focus of this study is the observation of the adaptive mechanisms used to transpose the Victorian romance to the cinema in two different centuries. Adapting a text implies making choices and changes, which gives an individual character to the story told by the film. Therefore, we will analyze in the narrative elements that characterize the Bilgundsroman in the path of the protagonist Jane and the gothic characteristics, within the cinematographic texts, considering the different contexts and meanings attributed by each production when where elaborated their plots.
