Jane Eyre resides in four houses in her life but I will be taking a closer look at the first one Gateshead and the third one Thornfield and the differences between them She experiences and learns a lot while living in these two places and the events that occur really translate well into developing life lessons and learning experiences for the casual reader of Jane Eyre Gateshead and Thornfield are similar in many ways but the differences are what really come to shape and mold Jane Eyre into the mature young women she becomesThe first real difference between these places is the age at which Jane lives in them and with the different ages come different feelings attitudes and responses to situations At Gateshead she is a young girl probably around the age of ten Sadly Jane has had to go through a lot at such an early age both of her parents have died from illness and in turn she has been taken in by her aunt Miss Reed She is treated unjustly and unkindly by all three of her cousins especially John He drives her to insanity whether its by picking on her or even by throwing books at her But the sad thing is Miss Reed turns a blind eye to John and only sees the faults in Jane At such a young age Jane should not be under such tyranny these kinds of stress cause Jane extreme anxiety and anger This kind of treatment to such a young girl who has already experienced such extreme loss and hurt can be detrimental On one occasion Jane blows up on John she says You wicked boy you are like a slave driver you are like the Roman emperors This completely goes against Janes previous behavior at Gateshead Before she would have just taken that kind of abuse and let it go but now the emotional stress has led her to display her feelings
