JANE EYRE, DESCRIZIONE DEL PERSONAGGIO
Jane Eyre is the main character of Charlotte Brönte’s masterpiece “Jane Eyre” written in 1847.
Its publication caused indignation among the conformists of that time because the novel reversed the 19th century woman’s condition.
The public preferred women to be presented with something of the unreality of romance while Jane Eyre was the archetype of the anti-heroine who broke with social conventions.
She possesses some features that make she unique: intelligence, rationality, great restlessness, great passion, thirst for freedom, lack of malice and falsehood.
She doesn’t fear comparison with men and women who belong to higher social classes; on the contrary she can excel thanks to her deep knowledge of the language and her vast culture.
Jane affects readers because she is independent, emancipated and she captures the reader’s attention with her strength and her ability not to give in to despair.
