Feminism in Jane Erye
Feminism is a very contradictory theme throughout literary history. It does not have to be seen as a complete rebellion against men, but can simply represent intelligence and self-worth in a female. This philosophy is shown in many of the works of Charlotte Bronte. She uses independence as a “keynote in her thinking about her own life and the life of all unmarried women” (Ewbank 157). One such work is Jane Erye.
