    This thesis first introduced the author Charlotte Bronte, for they have many common grounds.

    The opposite is true when Jane is tempted to marry St John. It cannot be moulded into exact shapes, it is constantly changing, and if unchecked will consume the ground on which it burns, leaving black cinders and ash, just as Bertha is blackened and swollen. The narrator judges the Brocklehurst girls for their doll-like shallowness. Jane cannot 'see God for his creature' of whom she has 'made an idol. Through these aspects we see a development of tension within Jane between emotional and logical natures, and this tension is played out in the events of the book.
