...Bertha and Jane To attempt an extensive comparative study of similarities between Jane Eyre and Bertha is like searching for a needle in a haystack because on the physical, emotional and intellectual level, they are poles apart. Perhaps one can attempt this from an entirely psychological point of view and clutch at Jane's childhood days as the straw - a slightly weighty straw, however. "Jane Eyre" is a novel where the whole action centers around Jane, her childhood misery, her life at Thornfield, her genuine attraction for the physically unhandsome Rochester that gradually blossoms into love, her shock, the change wrought in her status and finally...

Besides Bertha, Jane can also be considered as an insane person for reasons that can be well understood from a philosophical point of view.

As her main character, Jane, progresses from childhood through to adulthood, she demonstrates the difference between the Victorian society life that would have her ignore all her feelings and her own personal life in which her feelings are unable to be squelched so rigidly. As Jane grows through the book, this conflict between society’s rules and her inner feelings becomes more and more obvious, finally reaching a resolution at the end in which she has found both an accepting home and status while retaining her own inner fire.
