Sonnet 79 Jane Eyre Composition Different people have different attitudes and ideas about true love People also express their feelings of love in many different ways However Edmund Spensers attitudes and ideas are very similar to those of Charlotte Brontis novel Jane Eyre In sonnet 79 Spenser is speaking to a woman known for her beauty He notes that the woman knows of her own beauty Men call you fair and you do credit it Then Spenser goes on and tells how he does not like to pay close attention to outward appearances but greatly admires a womens internal beauty Spenser notes that internal beauty never fades unlike external beauty But the true fair that is the gentle wit And virtuous mind is much more praised of me He only fair and what He fair hath made All other fair like flowers untimely fade True beauty to Edmund is the kind of person you are your heart your soul and your wit Not the kind of beauty that can fade like outward beauty In Charlotte Brontis novel Mr Edward Rochester falls deeply in love with young Jane Eyre Jane Eyre is not a pretty woman to the naked eye Though Mr Rochester loves Jane for what she is made of He loves her personality her inner strength and all her qualities Mr Rochester pays no attention to Janes outward appearance Jane also falls in love with Mr Rochester for the same reasons At one point in the novel Mr Rochester asks Jane if she thinks he is a handsome man Jane honestly replies no However their love for each other is so very strong and will never fade because they love for the right reasons It is very clear how similar Edmund Spensers views on true love is to Mr Rochesters and Jane Eyres views They believe their love will never fade because their reasons for love will never fade
