Many authors throughout time have used nature to describe scenes and feeling that the characters are feeling This method of imagery is widely used because it is very vivid and creates a mental image of the scene in the mind of the reader In doing this an author can get his point across to the reader much more effectively than if they simply explain the actions of the characters Charlotte Bronte uses this method quite frequently in her story of Jane Eyre The relationship between human actions and the actions of nature are apparent and easily distinguishablereadable For the purposes of this paper I will focus on the themes of wind water and birds that are used frequently throughout the length of the novel to describe the mind of Jane Eyre and often the relationship between her and Rochester A recurring theme in this novel in which Bronte uses to describe several aspects is the bird theme It was quite obvious that Jane Eyre had a fascination with birds which was first sparked when she read Bewicks History of British Birds when she was still very young The first concept is that Jane Eyre used the idea of birds to symbolize soaring above the problems that everyone occurs in their everyday lives Bronte also uses the idea of feeding bird crumbs to the birds which fuses the concept of reality into Jane Eyre by showing that even birds must come down from there place above the world to face the dilemmas that occur on the ground Jane constantly portrayed feelings that she wanted to get away from her problems and if she was a bird she could simply fly above the world and never have to deal with anything a notion that every human has at some point in their lives These two examples show the metaphors of birds that Bronte uses to explain Jane Eyres thoughts and feeling Another recurring theme
