The Impression of Jane Eyre
In this semester, I have read “Jane Eyre”.I want to share some of my feelings with you after I read it . Jane Eyre’s parents past away when she was very young
.Mr Reed ,the only relative she had,took Jane to his house after her parents died.It is know to us,even though living at Gateshead,in such a beautiful house ,Jane Eyre’s childhood wasn’t happy.Soon,Reed had a serious ill and his wife MrS Reed promised to him to look after Jane like her own children ,but she didn’t keep her promise after Mr Reed died.Mrs Reed hated Jane and treatedJane cruelly.Her attitude made the others change their view to Jane.Her cousins didn’t like her and even bullied her all the time .The servant Bessie is the only person who was kind to her . She started a new life when she left Gateshead.At Loowed,she was both excited and nervous about the new place and new people she had met.Life at Loowed wasn’t good at the beginning.People there must believe in hard wook ,plain food,simple clothes and no luxury.Jane has made a friend here,the first really friend----Helen Burns.This girl was smart and kind-hearted but she was hated by her teacher Miss Scatchered and always be punished because of her “untidy and careless”.Jane was so
angry about that ,on the contrary,Helen told her :”Life is too short to continue hating anyone for a long time .We all have faults,but the time will come soon when we die,when our wickedness will pass away with our bodies,leaving only the pure flame of the spirit .That’s why I never consider life unfair.I live in calm ,looking forward to the end . This is true ,her life was too short !When Jane felt she was accepted ,learned to like school and set to work to learn as much as she can ,make as many friends as possible ,Helen’s illness was much more serious than Jane first thought ,she had got a tuber culosis.One morning Miss Temple found Jane was asleep with Helen Burn’s dead in her arms.Helen have a great effect on Jane,she teached Jane how to learn to love ,forgive and do as the Bible tells:”Some things you have to put up with some hard things in life even if other people hurt us .” Jane stayed for 8 years in Lowood,and in the last of two years she became a teacher. She was busy and happy all the time ,however,,suddenly she realized she had never known any other world apart from Lowood or Gastehead.She desided to change her life or at least found a new master to serve .So she advertized in a newspaper for a job as a governess and then came to Thornfield.The master of the Thornfield was rich ,clever and
a little peculiar.They fall in love with each other although he was nearly 20 years than her.But Jane thought she didn’t really understand him and never sure whether he is serious or joking.So she always speaking carefully and keeping serious to build a wall to protect herself .Finally ,she had courage to express her love to Rochester .She said :”Do you think I can watch another woman become your bride?Do you think I’m a machine,without feelings?Do you think ,because I’m small and poor and plain ,that I have no soul and no heart?Well,you’re wrong !I have as much soul and heart as you .It is my spirit that speaks to your spirit !We are equal in the sight of God!” At the wedding ,Jane found Mr Rochester was already married and his wife was still alive !His explanation made Jane forgive him at once in her heart because she knew what he said was
true .However,in her heart she also knew it was right for her to leave .She left Mr Rochester when he was rich and health .But when she knew he was disabled and his eyes were blind,she came back and married with him. After reading it,I was very admire Jane’s personality.I rember her self-respet and clear situation on equality.In her opinion,everyone in the same at the God’s feet .Though there
are differences in status,in property and also in appearance,but all the human being are equal in personality. When she found herself fall in love with Rochester,she was clear that the gap between them. Rochester,a blue blood,very rich ,in a British upper-class gentleman,she is just a status and servant,but she didn’t discouraged,and self-pity.She acknowledged her feelings towards him.When she knew Rochester had a wife,she maintained her dignity and left. When I was think of Jane, she gave us not a pretty face but a huge charm of her personality that make me admire deeply.As we all know,she was’t pretty actually,and of course,the ordinary appearance didn’t make others feel good of her .And some others even thought that she was easy to look down on and to tease,so when Miss Ingram met Jane ,she seemed quite contemptuous,for that she was obviously much pyettier than ‘the plain and ugly governess’.But as the little governess had said:’Do you think ,because I am poor ,obscure,plain,and little I am soulless and heartless?You think wrong!’This is the idea of equality in Jane’s mind.God hadn’t given her beauty and wealth ,but give her a kind mind and a thinking brain.Her idea of equality and self-respect impress me so much and make me feel the power inside her body.
In my mind ,though a person’s beauty on the face can make others once feel that one is attractive and charming ,if his or her mind isn’t the same beauty as the appearance,such as beauty cannot las for a long time,when others find that the beauty which had charmed them was only a falsity,it’s not true,they will like the person no more .Just like Kahill Gibran said,’beauty is a heart enflamed and a soul enchanted’.I can feel that how beauty really is ,so we distinguish wheather a man is of nobleness or humbles.But as there are great differences in our souls,and from that,we can know that whether a man is noble or ordinary,and even obscure,that is ,wheather he or she is beauty or not . So,I want to tell each girl:if you want to get love you wanted,what you should do is to improve your intrinsict tutelage.Although beauty is important,your cultivation is more important.
