Charlotte Brontes novel Jane Eyre is a classic for one main reason it has stood the test of time RW Emerson stated this truth quite accurately Never read a book that is not a year old From 1847 at its origin to 2003 where one seniors grade depends on it Jane Eyre has many relevant and insightful points for all generations Jane Eyre is a love story that is treated rather unconventionally by the novelist Jane was only a of eighteen and fell in love with her master Edward Rochester who was twice her age She did not enjoy the advantages of either extraordinary beauty or social position This fascinated Mr Rochester he was inspired by her courage education remarkable efficiency high moral sense and character He too fell in love with her But she was not just a romantic who was blind to the faults of her lover Jane was fully aware that Mr Rochester was wealthy status-conscious and ruled by his pride She was also conscious of his irritable nature and yet she loved him Her love however was subject to volatile changes By surviving these changes Janes love for Rochester shows an example of true unconditional love which is deep and enduring and does not change though the world around her and her circumstance do change Charlotte Bronte handled the theme of love very delicately Jane Eyre is an example of how love should be based on mutual respect mutual need and mutual recognition of weaknesses This is the formula for a successful marriage Bront did not idealize her heroine On the contrary she looked at Jane as an active person who was fearless unashamed passionate and determined to have her rights acknowledged Throughout Mr Rochesters courtship Jane retained her dignity and individuality She would not seek to please him if his demands offended her dignity as a woman That was why Jane refused to become Edward Rochesters
