Introduction

Jane Eyre, a novel by C.Bronte, published 1847. Charlotte Bronte created successfully a typical woman characters who has the courage to rebel and fight for freedom and equality. This present paper, from what Jane Eyre experienced and what she thought about the happenings, analyses Jane Eyre's independent, rebellious characters and spirits and Jane Eyre includes the spiritual and supernatural themes. Now let me introduce the main content about Jane Eyre . Jane Eyre , the heroine, a penniless orphan, has been left to care of her aunt Mrs Reed. Harsh and unsympathetic treatment rouses her defiant spirit, and a passionate outbreak leads to her consignment to Lowood institution. There, consoled for the severity of the regime by the kindness of the superintendent Miss Temple and a fellow orphan, Helen Burns, who dies in Jane's arms of consumption? She spends some miserable years, eventually becoming a teacher on Miss Temple's marriage she obtains a post as governess at Thornfield Hall to Adele, the illegitimate daughter of Mr Rochester a Byronic hero of grim aspect and sardonic temper. Rochester, despite Jane's plainness, is fascinated by her sharp wit and independence, and they fall in love. After much resistance she agree to many him, but on the eve of their wedding her wedding veil is rent by an intruder who Rochester assures her is a servant, Grace Poole, but who is the next day revealed too be his mad creoles wife Bertha, confined to the upper regions of the Hall for years, whose unseen presence has long disturbed Jane. The marriage ceremony is interrupted by Mrs Rochester's brother from the West Indian and despite Rochester's full confession and pleadings with Jane to stay with him, she flees. After nearly perishing on the moors, she is taken in and cared for by the Revd. St John Rivers and his sisters Mary and Diana. It emerges that they are her cousins, and that Jane has inherited money from an uncle: the legacy is equally divided between the four under pressure from the earnest appeals and strong personality of the dedicated Rivers; she nearly consents to marry him and share his missionary vocation in India, but is prevented by a telepathic appeal from Rochester. She returns to Hopfield Hall to find the building burned, and Rochester blinded and maimed from his attempt to save his wife from the flames. She marries him, and in the last chapter we learn that his sight is partially restored.
