International Journal of English and Literature - jane eyre searching for belonging | Jane Eyre | Scoop.it
This paper tackles Jane Eyre's journey to get belonging. This journey passes five phases. The paper is not going to focus on these chronological phases in details or highlight on them. The major task of the researcher is to discuss two major points: Jane's consistent endeavors to have belonging and the moral stance of Jane to achieve this purpose. These two points will give the researcher a convenient chance to manipulate such characters as Rochester and Bertha. The researcher will try to expose Charlotte Bronte's conventionality, which is so obvious in tacking many crucial situations, particularly among Jane, Bertha and Rochester. The researcher’s interest is to show which goal Jane dreams to achieve: love or autonomy? That is why he is not going to defend Bronte as a feminist. Yes, she tried to expose the social diseases in her nineteenth- century British society. But the problem is with Bronte herself, for she has no rebellious character. It is left for the reader to decide which character is Charlotte Bronte: a feminist or a traditional writer?

Key words: Bertha, Creole, belonging, autonomy, love, Rochester, insanity, governess, money, poverty, feminist, outsider.
